St. Mary Catholic Community School in Crown Point recently celebrated Catholic Schools Week. Sunday began the festivities with Mass, a well-attended Open House, and virtual Pancake Breakfast. On Monday, students honored the community by dressing up as health care workers, teachers, firefighters, and other local heroes. They also created colorful posters for those heroes to show their gratitude of service and support.
Next, to celebrate Vocations, the first and second graders led the younger elementary students in the Living Rosary. On Nations Day, students wrote prayers for the spread of peace in our country. In celebration of all the students, dalmatians, secret service agents, 80’s trends, sports teams, and more could be seen filling the classrooms on Students Day, along with a Living Rosary for the junior high led by the Student Council members.
St. Mary's exhibited school spirit on Friday in their Wildcat Pride gear and played Bingo in their classrooms with a video led by the 8th grade Student Council. Throughout the celebrations, students and staff alike displayed how they live out the national theme of Catholic Schools Week: to share their faith, strive for excellence in all endeavors, and give the gift of service to those around them.
