Catholic Schools Week 2015
January 25  - 30

 Schools are communities, like small families, 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. This year's 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. ~from National Catholic Education Association

Our unofficial CSW kick off began with the celebration of Monsignor Sack's 77th birthday after the school Mass on January 23. The students showered Monsignor with cards, gifts, flowers, and a special song by the 8th grade to the tune of "My Favorite Things". There was also a gift presentation by Mr. Reese on behalf of the students and faculty, and by Mrs. Rochelle Jones, president of the Home and School Association.

We thank Monsignor Sacks for his dedication to Catholic education and especially to our school. The entire school community wishes him good health and happiness for many years to come.
