Catholic Schools Week is Saturday, January 28 through Friday, February 3. The theme this year is SonForce Kids.
The week is filled with out- of-this-world adventure. Along the way, students learn to trust in God, unite with God, train to serve God, follow God, and lead others to faith in God.
“The kids take on the roles of special agents all week,”explained St. Lawrence School Principal Brenda Anderson. “They dress up each day to explore and enjoy activities, wacky centers, singing, crafts, and games. It’s sure to be a week of lots of energy.”
The week starts with 5 p.m. Mass on Saturday. Mass is followed by a bbq and hot dog meal for all parishioners, students, and their families. Bingo follows the meal and is open to the public. Prizes range from $10 to $100.
Monday is Color Code Day. Students dress in one color. The lesson, Trust in God, will be illustrated through the story of Moses.
Tuesday’s lesson – Unite with God- explains how to help others. Students come to school dressed in disguise. They will host Soup Day for grandparents and the elderly from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m.
On Wacky Wild Wednesday, students dress as crazy as they like. They study Daniel, the servant of God, and train to serve.
On Thursday, students are encouraged to follow God’s rules even when that seems hard to do. The afternoon will be filled with secret agent activities.
The week will wrap up on Friday with Spirit Day. Students sport their new Catholic School t-shirts and learn to lead others to faith in God. The morning includes Mass and a fifth grade band concert. Parents and grandparents are invited to a classroom open house from 9:45 a.m. until 11 a.m. for a peek at the week’s activities and projects.
