National Catholic Schools Week 2018

National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education and this year it runs from January 28- February 3, 2018. This year’s theme is “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” Many area Catholic Schools will observe the annual celebration week with Masses, Open House and other activities for current students and families, perspective students and families and community members. It is a great way to explore your local Catholic School, especially if you are considering a Catholic education for your children. This post is sponsored by the featured schools.
