St. Mary Catholic Community School in Crown Point celebrated Catholic Schools Week from February 1st-5th. First, students honored community heroes by dressing up as health care workers, teachers, firefighters, and more. They also wrote thank you letters to those folks to show their appreciation of service and support. On Tuesday, the school celebrated vocations through the Living Rosary led by the first and second graders. Grades 5-8 participated in a virtual Mass with Bishop Robert McClory which was live streamed from Andrean High School. On Wednesday, students paid homage to our nation by writing prayers for peace in the United States. Dalmatians, Disney Characters, twins, sports teams, and many other themes could be seen as students walked the halls to celebrate “student day” on Thursday. St. Mary's showed school spirit on Friday in their Wildcat Pride gear and played virtual bingo in their classrooms with a video led by the 8th graders. Throughout the week, students and teachers showed how they live out the theme of Catholics Schools Week with their gratitude for the gift of faith, determination to strive for excellence, and service to each other and those around them.
