The week of January 30 to February 3 was a very fun one for St. Peter and Sacred Heart School. We were celebrating Catholic Schools Week, the equivalent of a spirit week at other schools. The theme for this year was Character, Compassion, and Values.

We started off the week with Bishop Richard Malone Th.D coming to celebrate mass with all three Catholic schools at St. Peter and Paul Basilica. Many other clergy came to celebrate mass with us too. They were Reverend Msgr. Marc Caron, Father Robert Lariviere, Father Frank Murray, Father Dan Greenleaf, Father Michael Seavey and Deacon Dennis Mailhot. After the mass the Bishop announced that the three Catholic schools would be merging. Then Bishop Malone came to our school and visited our classrooms.

On Tuesday we held our open house. Student council representatives showed people around the school.

On Wednesday it was Teacher Appreciation Day. The teachers were treated to a luncheon of salad, garlic knots, pasta dishes, and a cookie from Davinci’s.

Finally on Thursday it was Student Appreciation Day. In the morning the students learned about weather to prepare for a visit from Joe Cupo. Mr. Cupo is the meteorologist for WCSH 6. On Thursday night we had a pajama dance from 6:30 to 8:30. Admission was a canned good. The canned goods are going to the Good Shepard Food Bank. It was a lot of fun.

On Friday the school went over to Sacred Heart Church at 9:00 to have our throats blessed in remembrance of St. Blaise Day. On Friday we hosted Grandparents Luncheon and 175 grandparents came to eat a lunch of lasagna, salad, bread, and apple pie with their grandchildren.

Thanks to all our volunteers, parents, and teachers for making this Catholic Schools Week a great one!
