Celebrating Your Students

Today we celebrate the gifts, talents, and faith of Catholic school students.

Catholic education provides a nurturing environment for children and youth to grow and learn, not only in their academic studies but also in their faith. Through the study of God’s Word, we learn that we are all created in God’s image and that God calls each of us by name. The life and teachings of Jesus Christ serve as the example by which we are to live.

Three Ways to Celebrate the Student-School Connection

  1. Invite older students to read Bible stories to younger students. Invite younger students to role-play Bible stories for older students.
  2. Brainstorm with your class or invite small groups of students to name five things they have learned from reading God’s Word. As an alternative, invite younger students to draw pictures of their favorite Bible stories.
  3. Start a pen-pal program with another Catholic school, perhaps a mission school supported by your parish or diocese.
