Catholic Schools Week Information


Catholic Schools Week 2020
January 26th to February 1st, 2020

 

Theme: Catholic Schools:

Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.

 

Catholic Schools Week - Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.At Schlarman Academy and across the United States, Catholic Schools Week is a celebration of Catholic education. The National Catholic Education Association (NECA) selects a theme and each school plans activities around this theme. At Schlarman Academy, Catholic Schools Week is a celebration of all the elements of our school that make it such a great place--students, parents, faculty, staff, friends, and the entire parish community.

Explanation of This Year's Theme (Taken from the NCEA):

The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2020 is “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” The annual observance starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2020 is January 26th to February 1st.

The theme encompasses the core products and values that can be found in Catholic schools across the country. Not only are we teaching students to become future servant leaders, faith-filled disciples and enriched citizens in our communities, we, as educators, are growing with them. In Catholic schools, we are all learners, servants and leaders. These shared qualities are what make Catholic schools work. They are what make Catholic schools succeed.
