Catholic Schools Week celebrated in Vermillion
St. Agnes School in Vermillion celebrated Catholic Schools Week, Jan. 27-Feb. 2. This year's theme was "Catholic Schools: Light the Way."

An All-School Mass and a turkey dinner were held on Sunday. Monday was Hat Day and parents were invited into the classrooms. Tuesday was Cuddle Up & Read Day; Wednesday included a Patriotic Living Rosary and making Valentines for servicemen and women.

On Thursday there was an All-School Mass and a Saint Museum tour, and on Friday students at St. Agnes along with all the diocesan Catholic Schools wore their new t-shirts from Avera.

Students and staff also participated in a walk-a-thon on Friday; a food drive was held throughout the week for the Vermillion Food Pantry.

St. Agnes School offers a high-quality, faith-focused education and makes a vital contribution to education and the quality of life.

"Catholic Schools Week affords us the opportunity to celebrate the excellent educational achievements of our schools in a wonderful faith environment," said Matt Althoff, director of Catholic Schools for the diocese. "It also allows us to acknowledge the ministerial commitment and efforts that our Catholic school principals, faculties, staff and parents make in order to insure the schools remain a healthy and vibrant reflection of their parish," Althoff said.
