Little Flower School celebrates Catholic Schools Week

By Staff | Feb 3, 2017

Catholic Schools Week was this past week at Little Flower Catholic School, a week where faculty, staff and students working in and attending Catholic schools celebrate the opportunity to be a part of the Catholic school community.

“It’s a week where we remember how fortunate we are to go to a Catholic school,” Julie Mosher, 5th and 6th grade teacher at Little Flower and member of the Catholic Schools Week committee, said.

Each day of the week celebrated a different theme and held a different meaning. The week kicked off with its annual carnival on Sunday, which was a huge success. Monday’s theme was “Faith and Faculty” and included a staff luncheon. Parents volunteered to watch classrooms while the teachers gathered together. Students also dressed up as their favorite Bible characters.

Tuesday celebrated “Faith, Family and Friends.” Students made cards for their families and friends to show how much those relationships mean to them. Students were also encouraged to dress up as a friend or in a sports themed costume.

Wednesday was Camouflage Day and focused on “Faith in our Nations.” Wednesday also kicked off the fifth and sixth graders annual Cookies for A Cause fundraiser, which was held through Thursday. All proceeds from Cookies for A Cause went to a Franciscan mission for orphans in Brazil.

An Open House was held Thursday morning from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., during which families of students and community members were invited to come enjoy a free lunch and visit the school to see what students have been doing and learning. Thursday was also pajama and wacky hair day.

Friday concluded Catholic Schools Week, with a morning Mass. Students and faculty wore their Sunday’s Best and attended church. Friday evening, from 7-9 p.m., a dance was held for all Little Flower students and CYO members. The theme of the night was “Space: A New Frontier.”

“It will be interesting to see how people are dressed [for the dance],” Mosher said.

Other members of the Catholic Schools Week committee are John and Amy Casavant, Renae and Andrew Arnston, Mike and Laura Swanson, and Jason and Karissa Brossart.
