Catholic schools across the country celebrate Catholic Schools Week during the last week of January/first week of February each year. The week serves to build community and celebrate our Catholic School community. OLSH Student Government takes the lead planning the week, which features OLSH traditions, appreciation activities, and more.
This year, the Catholic Schools Week activities include:
Monday, January 30 - OLSH Appreciation Day - dress down day for students, faculty, & staff, used book drive, Academic Challenge, Youth Night at Girls Basketball
Tuesday, January 31 - Faculty/Staff Appreciation Day - dress down day for faculty & staff, appreciation gifts given to faculty and staff
Wednesday, February 1 - Faith Appreciation Day - Mass with Bishop Walterscheid and display of Eucharistic Miracles of the World exhibit
Thursday, February 2 - Student Appreciation Day - student dress down day with option to wear PJs, student movie
Friday, February 3 - Community Appreciation Day - dress down day with class spirit shirts, NHS Anything But a Backpack day, Youth Night at Boys Basketball
Catholic Schools Week is also the perfect time to come together to show support for OLSH through giving to the Charger Challenge campaign. The funds raised during this campaign help to provide each student with something more than what is covered by the cost of tuition only. The actual cost to educate each student at OLSH this academic year is $5,000 more than what families are charged in tuition. The dollars raised truly do the work of making our mission possible - preparing students for a life of exceptional Christian leadership, stewardship, and service to all.
