Catholic Schools Week, a tradition that all Catholic schools, participate in.

At Providence Academy, this involves different activities and events throughout the week that all grades take part in. The week involves daily Mass, dressing up and taking a trip on one of the days.

Maggie Koeppl ‘18 said, “as a part of student council, I believe that we did a great job making this week fun.”

The week starts off on Monday with Hero Day. Students could dress with a hero t-shirt and socks for this event. The day also follows with a Night with NET and seeing the new Star Wars movie at the Plymouth Movie Theater.

Tuesday starts with breakfast provided in the Atrium, for anyone who would want it. The theme for this day is based on the students assumption of what the groundhog will see, so either summer wardrobe or winter wardrobe. Students then can decide whether to see the One Act Play or the Chamber Choir perform. The event after school is the boys basketball game at home.

Wednesday is full out-of-uniform as the students go to different places like Feed My Starving Children, Good Will and Habitat For Humanity. This is for half the day, and then the students will listen to a speaker, which will be followed by Mass.

Thursday is class pattern so freshman are polka dot, sophomore are stripes, juniors are plaid and seniors are camouflage. Classes will go on as normal with the last class period being senior speeches.

Friday is spirit wear with morning adoration throughout the whole day with a girls basketball game at home at 7 p.m.

And finally the last day is Saturday with a dance which is the theme of a hoedown were students can wear cowboy boots, jeans and plaid shirts.

Jack Healy ‘19 said, “ I am very excited for the dance and for the service project because it will be a lot of fun to help others.”

Catholic Schools Week is full of fun activities and will be enjoyed by all students.
