Catholic Schools Week 2020

We are looking forward to a wonderful week!

The 2020 Catholic Schools Week Kicks off on Sunday, January 26!

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 2020, is January 26 - February 1. The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2020 is ‘“Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” This 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.” -

St. Mary Interparochial School has several wonderful events planned for CSW! We hope you can join us for one or all! Please see below for the full CSW list of events.
