LFS celebrates Catholic education

By Staff | Jan 23, 2015

Ashley Burkhartsmeier/PCT The teachers and staff at Little Flower School are gearing up for Catholic Schools Week, which takes place Sunday through Saturday.

Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service is the theme of Catholic Schools Week, Jan. 25 through Feb. 1. Little Flower School will be celebrating 73 years of faith, knowledge and service in the Rugby area with varied activities in the coming days.

Communities of Faith are formed in the small classrooms with dedicated teachers, some very new and others more experienced, who explore together the importance of living the Christian life on a daily basis. Spiritual encounters and prayer are part of each day at school!

Communities of Knowledge are maturing in small classrooms where kindergartners are studying paleontology, videos have been created with MovieMaker, third- and fourth-graders taught each other about biomes and some are preparing to receive two sacraments! First- and second-graders are getting used to a new teacher, a new classroom arrangement and lots of new words as they progress in their reading skills. Marketplace for Kids assisted the fifth- and sixth-graders in printing a chess set with 3-D technology!

Communities of Service at Little Flower are continually reaching out to others in the spirit of Christ Jesus, with participation in Project Joy, serving at the altar for Mass, and the upcoming “Cookies for a Cause” fundraiser for the orphan children of Brazil, with whom our Franciscan Sisters work.

The annual week of celebrating Catholic Education will kick off with the CARNIVAL on Sunday at the Armory, from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cake walk, bingo games, lunch and other fun carnival games will be offered. Everyone is invited to attend.

Many exciting events are planned for the week. Monday, the teachers and staff will be honored; Tuesday, special guests will be invited for lunch at the cafeteria; Wednesday will feature “Cookies for a Cause”. Thursday is the ‘thank you’ salute to the community of Rugby and surrounding areas with a free Supper and Open House at the LF School from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, there will be a 9 a.m. Mass and a Skating & Pizza Party for the students in the afternoon with a family dance in the evening at the Memorial Hall. Families from Little Flower Parish are invited; children must be accompanied by an adult.

The week of celebrating Catholic Schools will close with Mass at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 1, at Little Flower Church. Several alumni will be featured speakers after Mass, including Miss Elizabeth Blessum, Miss Jessica Blessum and Miss Hannah Voeller, all seniors at Rugby High School.
