Each year, beginning with the last Sunday in January, we celebrate the Catholic education during the National Catholic Schools Week. It’s a tradition here at OLQA School that the festivities begin with the school Open House on Sunday morning. This year, we celebrated all of our students on Monday with loving notes from their parents, as well as a keepsake flashlight to tie into the “flashlight reading program.” Tuesday was the Priests, Diocese and Administration Appreciation Day. As a special treat, students enjoyed the Rockets and Robots assembly with Captain Bob. Parents received specially decorated prayer rocks from their children on Wednesday. Thursday was the Special Person Day, students and families attended mass and enjoyed a picnic lunch together. The week culminated with Teacher Appreciation Day on Friday. Students showered their teachers with cards and gifts, the PSA moms took over carpool duties in the morning to give the teachers a chance to relax, and a Super Bowl themed teacher/staff appreciation luncheon was sponsored by the sixth grade families.
CSW is a unique time for us to reflect on and cherish the Catholic education. PSA wishes to extend its deep appreciation to Amy Ivey and Keri O’Melveny for their tremendous efforts in making this a success!
