The Archdiocese of Philadelphia will celebrate Catholic Schools Week Sunday through Feb. 1 and local Catholic elementary schools have plenty planned.
Catholic Schools Week is an annual celebration of the values-centered, faith-filled education that students receive in Catholic elementary, secondary and special education schools, according to the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
This year's theme is "Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service."
On Tuesday, Jan. 28, Saint Anastasia School in Newtown Square, student council members and parent volunteers will deliver baked goods and cards made by the students as a "thank you" to various members of the community including: the local police and fire Departments, post office, the Marple Public Library and the Saint Anastasia convent and rectory. This is a 10-year tradition at the school during Catholic Schools Week.
