An open house, book fair, dress-up days, games and more took place at St. Agnes School recently as part of Catholic Schools Week.

The school, which is celebrating its 60th year, teaches children in pre-school through sixth-grade and also offers all-day, every-day kindergarten.

During Catholic Schools Week, students engaged in a variety of activities – from dressing up as their favorite Bible character to donning slippers and pajamas and going on a Bible scavenger hunt.

They held an open house, put on “Mad Scientist” classroom workshops, competed in a talent show, enjoyed lunch in the classrooms with their families, made snowmen glyphs, and brought blankets and their favorite stuffed animals to play pajama party bingo.

A highlight was Family Day, which gave parents and family members the opportunity to visit mini-stations highlighting the children’s school work, as well as take part in a book fair and family social.

Sponsored by the National Catholic Education Association, Catholic Schools Week began in 1974 and has become an annual celebration of Catholic education in the U.S. Through the many activities that take place, schools focus on the value of Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to church, local communities and the nation.

The theme for the 2020 week was “Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.”
