Catholic Schools Week - A Celebration!

We tried to have something special each day for our special week with thousands of other Catholic Schools across the 50 states.

We honored our parents and grandparents who help out in so many ways at our school, either with activities or with their son/daughter or granddaughter/son.
We invited them to a light breakfast two mornings this week. We did our opening prayer and announcements with them. One morning SPARK Christian radio station came to record our students saying the pledge of allegiance to play on their station. We felt very honored.

Yeah for Grandparents!!!

Natalie reads the introduction to their special Mass.

Fr. Ariel and altar servers

Grades 4 and 5 celebrated their class's patron saint, St. Thomas Aquinas, during this special week. They were honored with a Mass in their classroom with pastor, Rev. Ariel Lustan.

BINGO!  BINGO!   BINGO!!! BINGO!!   These words rang out often in our cafeteria as the 3 year olds through 7th grade played bingo to have some good old fashion fun this week. They were all trying hard to win the prizes Sr. Carol had been collecting for a long time.

Great Helpers for this little guy!

This is really fun! My first bingo game.

A helping hand!

I haven't won yet! Darn!!!

Hey! Are you winning again??

Calling back the winning numbers loud and clear!      

On to our closing Mass on Friday.  We began with the older grades carrying in processional flags. First time we did this and the younger students looked on in awe!

Litany of Thanksgiving for our school-All Saints Catholic School. Students from 3 year olds to the 7th grade thanked God for something about our school.

The 1st grade is thankful for their friendly class and to be able to learn in a school where we can talk about Jesus.

The Mass is over! 

On to next week-when Bishop Kicanas comes to celebrate Mass with us on Friday and Saturday is our annual Spaghetti Dinner/Silent Auction and STUDENT TALENT SHOW!
