The 2021 Catholic Schools Week Kicks off on Sunday, January 31!
What is National Catholic Schools Week?
“Since 1974, National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2021 is January 31 – February 6. The theme for National Catholic Schools Week 2021 is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.” Schools typically observe the annual celebration week with Masses, open houses and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.” - NCEA.org
St. Mary Interparochial School has several wonderful events planned for CSW! Please see below for the full CSW Schedule.

Reflections and Activities
Students will participate in activities focused on health, wellness, mindfulness, and compassion throughout the month of February.
Each day, our classes will dedicate time to reflect on an element of our school-wide mindfulness journey within their personal Mindfulness Journals, generously provided by Jefferson University.
We invite all students, staff members, and community members to donate to our canned goods drive.
Each class will be in competition to see which class can donate the most canned goods.
