St. John Vianney welcomes all to celebrate Catholic Education Week 2013

St. John Vianney kicks off Catholic Schools Education Week..

By K. Adamson

What’s so special about Catholic education when other schools offer excellent academics, too? It’s the religious aspect intertwined with the school’s goal of providing superb academic instruction. Classes, service projects, field trips, religious retreats and many other activities are always connected to Catholic teachings. “Our religion is integrated into the overall education of our students,” wrote Principal Pam Pyzyk in the school’s newsletter, the Shamrock Weekly.

 

This week, St. John Vianney, along with 115 schools in our archdiocese, joins thousands of schools nationwide to celebrate Catholic Education Week 2013. The week will be marked with a special activity each day including an Open House Sunday, January 27. Activities students will participate in this week include service projects, school-wide competitions, and attending Mass at St. John’s Cathedral with Archbishop Listecki and Father Bogacki, among others. The week will close with the annual eighth graders versus staff volleyball game.
