Along with over 6,500 other institutions across the country, St. Thomas the Apostle commemorated Catholic education and it’s focus on faith development, academic excellence and community service during Catholic Schools Week January 31-February 6. With its 130 year legacy-of-learning, STA had much to celebrate! Festivities included an Open House, an in-school, hands-on science experience High Touch, High Tech, a special Family Mass, creating Valentines for Veterans and a Daddy-Daughter Dance.
Archdiocesan Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jim Rigg joined STA seventh and eighth graders for a Friday Fun Lunch and then followed them to the gym for all-school line-dancing! Both he and God’s Children in Extraordinary Variety were steppin’ with style!
On Capitol Hill, resolutions were introduced in both the House and the Senate to officially recognize the contributions of Catholic elementary and secondary schools in the United States. The Senate resolution read in part: “…the Senate commends Catholic schools, students, parents and teachers across the United States for ongoing contributions to education and for playing a vital role in promoting and ensuring a brighter, stronger future for the United States.”
We are a proud Catholic school!
