Fantastic Catholic Schools Week!

Catholic Schools Week was a truly amazing week in which we celebrated Catholic Education (and had a lot of fun!).  The theme this year was “Catholic Schools:  Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” The students, faculty, and parents arranged some pretty incredible experiences to celebrate St. Martha’s Catholic School. We would love go give a shout out to all those who helped make our week such a great success!

Here is a recap of all the activities.

Stewardship Day

The Thursday prior to Catholic Schools Week was a Stewardship Day in which students kicked off collecting personal and hygiene items to be donated to Catholic Charities. Items ranged from toothbrushes and toothpaste to shampoo and conditioner and shower curtains. We were able to donate approximately 500 items!!

Monday

The entire school, preschool through 8th grade, was paired up with reading buddies. The students kicked off the week by reading to their buddies. Students young and old were able to practice and show off their reading skills.

 The day was then capped off with our schoolwide Spelling Bee. There was good competition, and congratulations to Aidan who was our school winner!

Tuesday

The Student Council and class representatives from grades 3-5 attended the Archdiocesean Catholic Schools Week mass at St. Gabriel Church. Attending the mass, celebrated by Archbishop Kurtz, were Leisa Schulz, Superintendent for the Archdiocese, representatives from the Catholic Education Foundation, and many students from elementary and high schools throughout the Archdiocese.

In the afternoon, the school choir, led by Mrs. Alesha Jones, put on a concert for school and parish staff members.

Wednesday

Parents were invited to attend the school’s weekly liturgy and return to the classroom to play games with their children. Students brought ina wide variety of games and fun was had by all.

Thursday

Teachers were shown appreciation with lunch proided to them and some scrumptious cupcakes provided by the PTO.

Thursday was Brain Storm day! At the end of the day,  there was a live “game show” in the library broadcast to the entire school. One student from each homeroom  and his/her corresponding teacher or assistant played head to head against each other. It was a very close game, and lots of knowledge was shared, but the students came out with a win in the end.

 

Friday

Appreciation for our students was the theme for Friday! We are so grateful for our students for their hard work and effort throughout the year. Students’ names were drawn throughout the day for prizes and Mr. Clark provided a popsicle at lunch for every student. The culminating eventfor the week was our 2nd annual faculty-student volleyball game. The games kicked off with the sixth and seventh grade students playing each other. Then the main event of the eighth grade vs the faculty took place.  Talent and ability shone through on both sides, but the teachers came away with the win.
