Catholic Schools Week
Posted by:Ro #85120

At the school where I used to teach they called it characters on parade. THere were many Harry Potters and Pippi Longstockings. Now that I teach in a Catholic School we do Biographies on Parade where each child dresses up as someone they admire, tells a little about that person's life, their triumphs and setbacks, etc. and then the audience tries to guess who the child is. It is really wonderful. Most of the kids work very hard on their costumes and their little speeches. Good luck with Catholic Schools Week. We really haven't even started to plan.

Posted by:Cathy #53397

Hi, the theme this year is Catholic schools make a world of difference. So each day of the week we chose a different "world" ocean, space, rain forest, arctic, and desert. Each day we have different activity to go along with the world. like hat day for ocean.hats are made or worn with an ocean theme, snacks and lunch also go along with the "world" theme. hope this helps

Catholic Schools Week Idea
Posted by:Kimberly #68579

Our children (ALL GRADES K4 through 8th) are given vasrious people to thank - ie, Parish Staff, crossing guard, kitchen staff, janitorial staff etc. So one day is support staff appreciation day. The next day is Parent appreciation day - obviously our parents sacrifice ALOT to pay the tution to send their kids to our schools so EACH child makes a person thank you for their parents, - this is ALWAYS received very well. Next day is teacher appreciation day and there is a lunch and then Friday is studetn appreciation day and the little kids go bumper bowling, middle schoolers and up go Roller Skating! THis is done FREE to the kids and the school picks this bill up.

We also do dress like your favorite teacher day and that is always good for some funny pics. We do many of the above mentioned ideas...

We've done the following in the past: decorated classroom doors, had essay contests as to why our school is the best, Student vs. Faculty volleyball game, spelling bees in each level, movie and popcorn for student appreciation day, pep rallies, school color day, prayer service to open the week, special Mass, VIP day (grandparents, etc.), schoolwide field trip -ice skating rink, alumni come to speak. Hope this helps. I'd be interested in your ideas, too.

All Out for Catholic Schools Week
Posted by:yowz #142354

Our school seems to go all out every year leaving not much time for "actual work." This year we actually scaled down a bit...
Sunday is opening liturgy. We have a pajama day, prayer service each day, movie day, ice cream sundaes, family projects, workshops (which consists of teachers and parent planning special activities to do like paper airplanes and stuff), flag ceremonies, ice skating, religion bees, handwriting contests, alumni assembly, family breakfast... and other things i can't think of. we are going to try and have some parents or volunteers compete in an "Are you smarter than our fifth graders" game.

For halloween each year we dress up and have a parade of saints. I like this idea with the theme this year. i wish we could do it for CSW instead. If your school hasn't maybe its an idea you can steal. Everyone...

We have an Art Fair all week

We have a storyteller come at night and all the kids and parents come in pj's and bring blankets

We have a Students Appreciation Day. The kids get to choose DQ or a neighborhood Deli. They pay for their own lunches and get to drink soda

We have a Teacher Appreciation Day and the kids get out at 12:30 and the faculty has a catered Lunch and then we get to leave early.

We have a grade levels Mass and grandparents can come and the students get to sit with their grandparents and not just with their class

The kids also get an ice cream treat another day.

This what I know about so far.

Here's what we are doing..

Sunday - wear uniform to mass (we are a 3 parish school) and Open House at school

Monday - Put student made "luminaries" out in the hallways to connect all classrooms with "light". The art classes also drew on the sidewalks with chalk to reflect this year's theme. It rained so I hope some of it is still there! It's also a dress down "Green and Gold" day where students can wear jeans and a shirt in the school colors if they wore their uniform to mass on Sunday. Ofcourse, we have no way of knowing if they really did or not unless we happen to see them there so we just have to take the parents word for it when they send in a note.

Tuesday - We will read success stories of saints and heros in class and will have...
