Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School celebrates Catholic Schools Week January 28 – February 1

Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School celebrated Catholic Schools Week, January 28 – February 1. The 2013 theme was Catholic Schools Raise the Standard.  K4-12 students participated in special events throughout the week celebrating Community, Nation, Vocations, and Faculty. The week kicked off with a special guest speaker at each campus, Savannah Maddison. The 11 year old founder of Savannah’s Soldiers, a letter writing campaign for soldiers deployed overseas, Savannah traveled for the first time with her best friend Wilson. Wilson’s Father was deployed and in an effort to help the her friend heal, Savannah and Wilson decided to adopt all 700 soldiers that deployed with Wilson’s Father.  The campaign has grown and Savannah visited each class at Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School’s two elementary campuses on Monday, January 28 to collect the letters Montgomery Catholic students wrote for her campaign. She also visited the Middle School Campus on Tuesday January 29.

Grandparents were invited to our elementary campuses for Grandparents Day (the St. Bede campus celebrated on Monday, January 28 and the Holy Spirit campus celebrated on Thursday, January 31). The Holy Spirit campus held a book fair all week. The St. Bede campus art show “Is it art, or is it dinner?” was on display in the main hallway all week. Middle School campus students invited family members to lunch on Thursday, January 31. The High School campus had daily reflections on “What Catholic School Means to Me”, by leaders in the the Catholic community. The MCPS PTC treated students, faculty and staff to several special events throughout the week.
