Catholic Schools Week took place last week, and all of our schools celebrated in a variety of ways, including a Mass and Sharing Day with all 4 schools on Wednesday. The elementary students also learned the importance of giving back by doing several different activities throughout the week. The young students all participated in “Change for Change” by bringing in pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. Together, the 3 schools raised over $2700, and all the funds went to the Claire and Patrick Mackey Children’s Cancer Foundation.
Each school also collected canned good to be donated to the Tippecanoe County Food Pantry.
St. Boniface students also reached out to our veterans by coloring heart wreaths to be given to the residents at the Indiana Veterans Home for Valentine’s Day.
St. Mary’s also decorated bags for the Meals on Wheels program, and students wrote thank you notes to their parents for sending them to St. Mary. The students also recognized teachers with a rose, a crown, a walk down the “red carpet,” and students and families also wrote notes of appreciation to the teachers. The St. Mary’s students also learned about vocations by dressing as their favorite vocation and having Fr. Borawski meet with the school to discuss his special vocation. He encouraged the students to ask God to guide them in choosing their vocation and to listen to God in their hearts as He guides them.
