Catholic Schools across the nation recently celebrated National Catholic Schools Week. Students from one of our Carmelite served schools, St. Jude Elementary in Boca Raton, Florida, were featured in a video made for this annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2015 was “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” Schools observe the annual celebration week with Masses, open houses and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.
Congratulations to our “St. Jude’s Saints” – Principal Miss Debbie Armstrong, students, administrators, faculty, staff and parents for being a community united in their belief in the value of Catholic education and for helping their students to achieve their “highest potential spiritually, emotionally, and academically, while growing in the understanding that they are created and loved by God.”
Be sure to view this video which was shown at the national convention of the National Catholic Education Association and will be used throughout the US this year. For more information on Catholic Schools week visit ncea.org.
