Celebrate Catholic Schools Week

“If I had to advise parents, I should tell them to take great care about the people with whom their children associate . . . Much harm may result from bad company, and we are inclined by nature to follow what is worse than what is better.” – St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

csw_15_fullcolor_pngThere are over 6500 Catholic Schools in the US. About 80 percent of these institutions are elementary schools that begin laying the foundation of good Christian living as early as the preschool or kindergarten levels. A Catholic education is an invaluable tool to help students to learn about their faith and live out the call to charity in their own families, schools, and communities.

Catholic Schools Week is celebrated in the U.S. every year during the last week of January. It is a week designed to highlight the value of Catholic education to the local community and the community at large. Specially selected activities and prayer celebrations are held throughout the week in the schools as well as their adjoining parishes, and an open-house invitation is extended to any who might wish to visit the schools.

This week long celebration helps not only to build school spirit for the students, but it also reiterates the true value of learning about the world from a Catholic perspective.  Help children contemplate why their learning environment is incomparable and why their school is important. This is also a great opportunity to introduce students to the patron Saints of Catholic schools, teachers or education, including St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, St. John Bosco, and St. Thomas Aquinas.

Let us help you celebrate Catholic School Week

in your classroom or learning environment with resources that focus on faith-based education in a unique way.
