What is a Catholic Education? (Part III)

Part III: What is a Catholic Education?

What’s Catholic Schools Week?

National Catholic Schools Week (CSW) is an annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. Now entering its 47th anniversary year, CSW has traditionally been held the last week in January. The theme is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.” Catholic schools have a specific purpose to form students to be good citizens of the world, love God and neighbor and enrich society with the leaven of the gospel and by example of faith.

As we shared in Part I: What is a Catholic Education, both campuses participate in CSW with dress up themes and community appreciation. The high school had dress up themes and wrote letters of appreciation to community partners. Junior High art students displayed Cathedral Windows in the halls to showcase their learnings of color theory. The elementary also had dress up themes in addition to dance parties in the gym and Bingo in the cafeteria.



On Thursday, Bishop Kihneman was back at The Heart and spent the day at the elementary. During Mass the Elementary Choir sang a special anthem and the students shared a special prayer and blessing for the Bishop. His message encouraged the students and teachers to embrace God and His love. Learn how Jesus lived his life on earth and allow the Spirit to guide us during our lives.




To top off a fun-filled week, Sacred Heart Catholic School will conclude CSW with a victory run for the 2023 South State Boys Soccer Champs! True Blue Cheers from everyone involved.
