Celebrating Catholic Schools Week

Catholic Schools Week celebrates the high standard of excellence and the quality of education found in Catholic schools. It’s an education that also prepares students for a faith-based life. This annual observance starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2013 is Jan. 27 to Feb. 2. The theme for the 2013 National Catholic Schools Week is “Catholic Schools Raise the Standards.”

Providence Catholic School joins other Catholic elementary and secondary schools in San Antonio and across the nation in celebrating Catholic Schools Week. Providence reflects the values of a Catholic education by preparing its students for the world of tomorrow and encouraging them to develop intellectual curiosity, deepen their faith, practice integrity and seek justice.  

As part of Catholic Schools Week at the Archdiocese of San Antonio, two Providence students were recognized as embodiments of a Catholic education. Junior Logan Glick won the 2013 Catholic Schools Week Service Essay Contest—High School Category. Glick founded Fournir4Kids, a nonprofit which raises money to fund projects for children by selling organic and specialty jellies and relishes at Farmers Markets and on her website (see NOWCastSA story).  Senior Zoe Berra was recognized as a semifinalist in the 2013 National Merit® Scholarship Program.
