Catholic Schools Week 2017 
January 30 - February 3
Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service
Since 1974, National Catholic Schools Week has been celebrated annually in the U. S. Beginning the last Sunday in January and running all week, schools typically observe the celebration with Masses, open houses and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation. This year's theme was "Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service."   
All Saints celebrated in many ways. The highlights of the week included the parent/grandparent luncheon, 100th Day of School activities, Rev. Coleman's challenge to be "world-changers" and the student vs. faculty basketball game (faculty won, but just barely!). To see photos from the week, click HERE
