GRAND BLANC — Holy Family Catholic School will join Catholic schools across the United States in observing Catholic Schools Week 2013, through Feb. 2.
“Catholic Schools Raise the Standards” is the theme for the annual celebration of the high quality, faith-based education that Catholic schools provide.
“Catholic Schools Week gives us the opportunity to honor the great gift of Catholic education,” said Holy Family Catholic School principal, Michele Jahn. “From outstanding academics, to strong faith formation, to community service, Catholic schools set a high standard that we are proud to celebrate.”
The highlight of the week is the 10th annual Lunches of Love, a school-wide service project that provides
500 sack lunches to the North End Soup Kitchen. Lunch sacks are decorated by children in preschool through fourth grade, while older students make healthy, delicious lunches. Each sack lunch also includes an encouraging prayer card from the school. The project provides a full day of lunch service for all four locations of the North End Soup Kitchen.
Other special activities include themed dress up days, treats for students and staff, buddy day, a tug-ofwar, talent show, storytellers, and more.
Since 1956, Holy Family Catholic School has offered high-quality, Catholic education for students in preschool through eighth grade.
