Catholic Schools Week 2019

Catholic Schools Week has been celebrated since 1974 in order to promote the gratitude felt by students all over the United States. Over 1.8 million students are receiving a Catholic education nationally, and results show these students benefit from a challenging, high-quality, and supportive environment. At Bishop Kelley, Catholic Schools Week includes a fun-filled schedule for both students and teachers.

 

Monday, the students participate in Twin Day, a chance to dress up and match with their friend in fun outfits.

 

Students will participate and serve in an all-school Mass on Tuesday. Retired faculty are invited to Mass, as well as a luncheon following.

 

Wednesday is kicked off with a teacher breakfast that is completely organized and provided by the students. This is also the day to bring blankets for donations in exchange for Free Dress! All blankets will be donated to Catholic Charities. This is our fourth year participating in this event, and in 2018, we donated around 550 blankets.

 

On Thursday, sophomores and juniors will have the opportunity to attend Career Day, and get the chance to have a real life look into different careers and discover new interests.

 

We end the week with Red and White Day, a chance for students to show off their school spirit. In addition to this, Mass will be offered in the Chapel at 7:15, and Adoration will be available throughout the day.
