Once a year, Catholic schools celebrate the Catholic school week. This year's theme is "Communities of Faith, Knowledge, and Service." They have activities from Monday to Friday last week. Monday was Student Day. The students have free dress (no uniform-day) which kids love because they always wear uniform everyday so they enjoy free dress day. Aside from that, they also had free HOT lunch, which I totally forgot so I packed my kids their own lunches lol. They also have Ice cream sundaes so it's a total treat for the students.
Tuesday was the Open House day. Friends and family can come to school and sit in the classroom and see how teachers and kids interact.
This year, I love that all the teachers include the parents in their classroom activities. We were part of the discussion, games, and lecture. You know how that goes when you get ambushed with questions that you haven't heard for a long time lol.
After attending our daughter science class, we went to the computer where they each students did a presentation of what they think about the school, the teachers, and all other things. Most of them have a great sense of humor in the presentation they did. I wish we had computer class back when I was a kid, it would have been nice.
Next was the Math class. The teacher encourage the parents to team up with their child to do a problem on the board, I thought that was nice too.
The one thing I love about the school is the camaraderie between the parents, the school employees and teachers, and the students. That's one big advantage when the school is a small community, everybody knows everybody.
On Wednesday, there was a mass attended by all including parents , friends and family. Thursday was Teacher's day, children got the chance to bring a little something for their teachers.
The most fun part for the kids is the last day. They get to dress up in 50's style. My daughter wore the poodle skirt and shirt that she had a couple of years ago and our son mimic the outfit in the movie Grease.
It was a fun day to wrapped the whole week of celebration. Shadow Shots
So sweet-especially the so's outfits!ReplyDelete
I miss school uniforms even today, it compels the students to look, and perhaps act more studiously in school. The poodle skirt is so 1950s - which is why it looks so cool! EJ looks even cooler!ReplyDelete
Cute. Looks like a great time for all.ReplyDelete
Have a Happy Day!
Your daughter at the computer looks completely startled!ReplyDelete
My kids go to public school, so I had no idea Catholic schools did this. I wonder if the ones around here do it, too?ReplyDelete
Love their costumes! I do not go to a Catholic school but we do go to a private school. I do know what big of a deal it is not to have to wear uniform one day.ReplyDelete

I love the 50's style outfits! SO cute! You nailed them, and got the accessories right on, too!ReplyDelete
What a fun celebration in school. It feels so nice to be able to see how your kids are doing at school, doesn't it? It gives you a hint of what it's like during their regular days. Love the last part! The outfits are so adorable!ReplyDelete
