Mr. Jim Franz, Principal, talked a little bit about the uniqueness and importance of Catholic Schools Week.

“Catholic Schools Week is a week set aside to celebrate the uniquenesses that Catholic schools can do. The bishop talked this morning about why we are here, and that’s really why we have Catholic Schools Week, for that formation of our faith,” Franz said.
