St. Rose and St. Mary’s Catholic School in Clintonville celebrated National Catholic School’s Week the last week of January.
The school focused on the value their Catholic education provides to young people and their contributions to the church, community and the nation.
The school kicked off Catholic School’s Week Sunday, Jan. 25 with its community-wide Children’s Carnival. Many people came out to enjoy the food, games, and book fair. Students also participated in bowling at the bowling alley, and tubing at Navarino Hills.
The school’s Student Council, participated in the service project ‘Carry My Bucket,’ an activity that brings awareness about water in third world countries.

Students also had a unique opportunity to ‘Stop, Drop and Read,’ in an overnight read-a-thon. Activities included reading breakout groups, a storyteller, word games, cardio-activities, and pizza.
All students celebrated the final day of Catholic School’s Week in their pajamas, with a special guest appearance by several Green Bay Gambler players.
The school also held a week long Penny War and raised $501.35 for Catholic Relief Service’s efforts for
