ON CAMPUS
Thanks to all of the faculty and staff for their contributions that made Catholic Schools Week such a success. We would especially like to thank Coach Bryan for all of her time and effort put towards coordinating another wonderful Catholic Schools Week full of fun events celebrating Catholic schools and teaching our students about faith, excellence, and service.

Our students had a blast with all events such as pajama day, crazy hair/hat/socks day, a Living Rosary ceremony, a virtual Alligator Farm tour, mismatch clothes day, musical performances, virtual tour of world cathedrals, art and writing activities, hula hoop contests, and a virtual drumline performance from Bishop Snyder High School.
