Catholic Schools Week

Twin Day, blankets for donations, career day, all school mass, and red and white day. Catholic Schools Week has been celebrated since 1974 so that students can show their gratitude toward catholic schools. The school plans a fun week for students and teachers, and it is an opportunity to acknowledge how fortunate they are to be able to attend a catholic school.

Junior Ella Leavitt (11) is a big part of the student council and loves the school along with everything it has to offer.
“Catholic Schools week is a great way to appreciate all the service our school has done and what they do to incorporate the catholic faith in our daily education,” Leavitt said.

On Monday, it is twin day where students will match with someone else. Tuesday is career day where students get to hear from adults about their career and get an early idea of what they would like to do in the future. On Wednesday, students bring blankets to donate in exchange for free dress. Thursday, the school celebrates an all school mass and Friday is red and white day where students dress in red and white to show school spirit.

Senior Joe O’Connor (12), student council president, is very appreciative of catholic schools week because of the meaning behind it.
“Catholic schools week makes students appreciate how blessed we are to be at a school like Bishop Kelley. We celebrate our school with fun themes like twin days and celebrate our faith with all school Mass,” O’Connor said.

Catholic Schools week is a way for students and the whole community to honor our Catholic school at the end of January.
