Catholic Schools Week — September 29 through October 3
On Tuesday, September 30, to kick off Catholic Schools week, all three Catholic Schools in Newark will be attending Mass celebrated by Bishop Campbell and area Pastors at St. Francis de Sales Church. This is the first time for all three schools to join together for Mass and we are excited for this opportunity to do so. We will be departing for Mass at 8:30 a.m. for 9:00 a.m. Mass. The students will then receive ice cream following Mass and depart St. Francis at 11:00 a.m. Upon return to NC everyone will report to homeroom and a “cook in” will take place with free lunch for all. We will then dismiss for the day at 12:45 p.m. Please note this is regular arrival time but early dismissal.
Thursday, October 2 Mr. Chad Judice, Right to Life speaker will be speaking to our students at an assembly. Chad Judice is a nationally known motivational speaker and award-winning author. He wrote two inspiring pro-life books, Waiting for Eli and Eli’s Reach, whose central character is his second son, Eli, who was born with spina bifida. As a Catholic educator for the last 13 years Chad was recognized as the 2010 Teacher of the Year in the Inspirational Teacher category by the Lafayette Education Foundation.

Wednesday students can dress up as “What I Want to Be When I Grow Up” , and Friday we will be offering free sundaes at lunch and free jeans day.
