Celebrating Catholic Schools Week

By Staff | Jan 27, 2011

Catholic Schools’ Week is a time to celebrate our purpose, history, hard work, and successes. We celebrate through various activities which include an all school mass, retreat day, service opportunities, and the soup luncheon.

Emmetsburg Catholic School will be celebrating Catholic School’s Week, Jan. 30 through Feb. 5. The week will begin with an All School Mass on Sunday, Jan. 30, at 10 a.m. Following Mass the K-8 students will perform a concert called “American Ideal.” The public is invited. There will be a reception with juice and cookies to follow.

During the week the Student Council has dress up days that they planned. Monday is Pajama Day; Tuesday is Wacky Day; Wednesday is Irish Pride Day; Thursday is My Hero Day; and Friday is Class T-shirt Day. The students really look forward to these dress-up days.

Each morning the staff will lead prayer services for the whole school. Retreat Day will be on Wednesday. Students will make rosaries, do scratch art, have a picnic lunch in Corrigan with their families, and finish the afternoon with a talent show. On Thursday, there will be the annual soup luncheon in the parish center. To the close out the day on Thursday, there will be a living rosary in Corrigan Hall.

We will close the week with visits to the Care Centers to play bingo or cards. In the afternoon the students will go to the Wellness Center to enjoy physical fitness for everyday life.

We express our gratitude to our parents, parishioners, alumni, and local businesses who have supported this gift of Catholic education for 121 years.
