Catholic Schools Week
Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration that focuses attention on the good work done by the nation’s Catholic schools. The week will be observed Jan. 31 to Feb. 6, by 7,248 U.S. Catholic elementary and high schools with an enrollment of over 2,000,000 students.
This year’s theme is “Catholic Schools - Dividends for Life.” In these challenging economic times, the dividends of a Catholic school education last a lifetime. Catholic school students are prepared in faith, knowledge, morals and discipline. There is no better way to invest in a child’s future or the future of our world.
Blessed Trinity will observe the week with a remembrance during morning announcements, a special prayer during Wednesday’s family meeting, trivia contest for house points, donuts, and a special gift given to all students and staff. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to attend Mass (morning or during third lunch). In families we will pray an All School Chaplet of Diving Mercy for John Wachtel.
As part of Catholic Schools Week, National Appreciation Day For Catholic Schools will be observed Wednesday, Feb. 3. National Appreciation Day was established to encourage supporters nationwide to showcase to elected officials the great accomplishments and contributions of Catholic schools. In Washington, a delegation of Catholic school students, teachers and parents will visit Capitol Hill to meet with congressional leaders to promote Catholic schools.
A special thank you to the staff at Blessed Trinity Catholic High School for their dedication to our faith, our students, and our future!
