It’s Catholic Schools Week! But what exactly is Catholic Schools Week? Well, Catholic Schools Week is officially known as National Catholic Schools Week, and starts on the last Sunday of January, and goes until the end of the week. This celebration started in 1974 and has continued to this day. Every year, Catholic Schools Week has a theme, and this year it happens to be “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” This week is observed with lots of things, including open houses, masses, and activities for students and teachers. These activities can vary from school to school.
Cardinal Pacelli celebrates each day of the school week with a different activity. Monday is a favorite sports team, where students may wear clothing celebrating their favorite teams. Also, students, K-5 will be treated to a performance by a Police Band. Tuesday is Tacky Tuesday where students get to dress up in there tackiest clothing. Also, it’s Grade Level game day, where students get to play board games. Wednesday is Student Appreciation day and also Favorite Color day. Students can wear their favorite color, have skyline chili for lunch, watch the Pacelli Talent Show, and enjoy your homework-free night! Thursday is Teacher Appreciation day and a spirit wear day! We’ll have a Family mass and at 10:45-12:15 parents will take over for the teachers. And Friday is Pajama Day! Be lazy and wear your PJs to school! Then we’ll play some bingo with our families, and don’t forget to listen to the music that will be playing during lunch.
