Catholic Schools Week 2017


From Sunday, January 29 through Saturday, February 3, 2017, Catholic Schools across the nation will devote an entire week to celebrating their valuable contributions to American society. Through Catholic Schools Week, we try to inform students, parents, and the general public what we are about and have a little fun at the same time. Come and join us during our special week.

Explanation of Theme
The theme encompasses several concepts that are at the heart of a Catholic education. First, schools are communities—small families in their own right, but also members of the larger community of home, church, city and nation. Faith, knowledge and service are three measures by which any Catholic school can and should be judged. The logo features a swirl of colors interacting around a cross, which is at the center of all Catholic education. The vibrancy of the colors and the movement and shadows in the logo portray the inner-connectivity and community life that are present in our Catholic schools.
