January 27 – February 2 is the annual celebration of Catholic School’s Week by Catholic schools all over the United States. The week builds community awareness of and involvement in Catholic schools throughout the country. During the week, schools and parishes focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and Catholic education’s contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.
This schedule details the fun activities that the students at our school will be participating in during the week.
Quick Fact: There are 132,656 private and public schools in the United States, according to Department of Education statistics. Of those, 6,980 are Catholic elementary or secondary schools. What sets there Catholic schools apart from the pack?
Three things, say educators, parents and community leaders: faith, academics, and service.
- Children are taught faith – not just the basics of Christianity, but how to have a relationship with God.
- Academics, which in Catholic schools are held to very high standards, help each child reach his or her potential.
- Service, the giving of one’s time and effort to help others, is taught both as an expression of faith and good citizenship.
What a blessing that in our small community, we are able to have our own Catholic School for our children to grow in faith and their love of God and others. Let’s remember those things that make St. Bruno School a wonderful, faith- filled, learning community and share that with others.
