Catholic Schools: A+ For America
Catholic Schools Week Begins January 30
ATLANTA — Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Atlanta will celebrate Catholic Schools Week 2011 from January 30 through February 5, with many activities highlighting the theme “Catholic Schools: A+ for America.” Catholic schools are an added value ---"a plus"--- for the nation. Because of their traditionally high academic standards and high graduation rates, all supported by strong moral values, Catholic schools and their graduates make many positive contributions to American society every day.
Dr. Diane Starkovich, Superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Archdiocese of Atlanta, stated, “We join 7100 Catholic schools across the nation as we celebrate Catholic Schools Week with outstanding academics, strong faith formation, and our commitment to service.”
Local Catholic schools have activities planned every day this week to recognize students, teachers and alumni. Marist Catholic School in Atlanta will host the archdiocesan spelling bee on Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. with the winner from each of the schools competing. The 8th graders from the Archdiocese of Atlanta will participate in Holy Mass at St. Catherine of Sienna Catholic School in Kennesaw on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m.
