Catholic Schools Week 2019

Catholic Schools Week is a nationwide celebration of Catholic education during the week of January 27 through February 2. The week’s theme — “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” — highlights the schools’ focus on faith development, academic excellence and dedication to community service.

Each year we intentionally focus on our parish; our community; our students; our nation; vocations; our faculty, staff, and volunteers; and our families- celebrating how each of those groups of people play important roles in the success of our school and how we can serve them.

Below is the schedule of events for the HFCS Catholic Schools Week celebration! We hope that you can join us!

Please note that some days are “dress-up” days in accordance with that day’s theme- you’ll easily find those in bold print.

Monday, January 28

Students will clean in and around the school, practicing being good stewards of our spaces and taking pride in our school building.

Each class will dress in a designated color (see below) and we will have a “shout out!” The loudest group will win donuts.

Colors are as follows:

  • Blue: 8th, 3rd, 1st

  • Red: 7th, 5th

  • Black: 6th, 2nd, PK

  • Green: 4th, K
