Catholic Schools Week 2015 was celebrated across the nation with Catholic schools holding special activities throughout the week beginning Sunday, January 25, and continuing through Friday, January 30.
At St. Peter’s School, various activities were scheduled across the campus throughout the week. With a snow day on Monday, the week’s activities began with an all-school Mass in the morning. Father Hite’s homily
Elementary students collected money to help support the Humane Society and had a sing-a-long in the main hallway with each grade level leading in their favorite church songs. They also created some very special thank you cards, wore crazy socks on Crazy Sock Day, shared a special religious item from home, and decorated a paper cross with an explanation of why they love St. Peter’s School. And to top off the fun activities, they danced at random times throughout the day with the “Get Up and Move” event and played board games with paired grade levels on “buddy day”.
Students in the high school and junior high collected canned goods for Catholic Charities, wrote thank you notes to staff and support groups, and enjoyed a class-competitive dodge ball game. Each day of the week, students were reminded to observe a colorful picture hanging in each classroom with a different “building block” on the foundation (i.e. Personal Best was Friday’s) and were encouraged each day to put forth effort to make the day’s building block a part of their daily living.
Thank you to everyone–students and staff and volunteers–who made Catholic Schools Week a celebration of Catholic education! More photos will be added to the gallery as they are received!
