Catholic Schools Week 2019 Recap

Thank you for celebrating Catholic Schools Week!

Catholic Schools Week 2019 at St. Mary Interparochial School was filled with so many wonderful events and activities!

We began our week with a kick-off Mass at Old St. Joseph's Church, where thirteen of our sixth grade students were inducted into the National Junior Honor Society. Congratulations to our students as they embark on this new journey as National Junior Honor Society members. Our students continue to make us proud every day!

On Tuesday, we celebrated our staff and faculty with a teacher breakfast, generously hosted by our Home and School Association.

Thanks to our dedicated staff, our school runs smoothly every day. They are a vital part of our school’s success and we appreciate everything they do!

Tuesday was also a Day of Giving for Catholic Schools across the nation. With the help of supporters like you, we were able to raise over $2,500!

All donations from our Day of Giving will go towards our Annual Giving Campaign. Thank you for making an outstanding Catholic education possible for the students of St. Mary Interparochial School in the heart of Philadelphia.

On Wednesday, we welcomed Musicopia! We learned about their wonderful Brazillian Adventure program, where our students learned Bossa Nova and Samba dance steps, learned to sing Brazilian songs in Portuguese and had the opportunity to play traditional Brazilian percussion instruments. Coming soon to our STEAM after school program!

In the spirit of service, as they do each year, our Prayer Families created Snack bags for the Veterans Multi-Services Center.

We thank our community service members for taking the time out of their day to serve their community. Thank you for all you do every day, especially for St. Mary Interparochial School!

Although our Catholic Schools Week celebrations ended early, we ended our week with some stellar guests! Some of our parents volunteered to come in and shine their light in their students' classrooms. From scientists to judges, our parents do it all! We thank them for continuing to shine their St. Mary light!
