Catholic Schools Week is set to celebrate its 48th anniversary this year and will be held Sunday, Jan. 30, through Saturday, Feb. 5. The nationwide theme is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.”

At St. Teresa of Calcutta School, the week will be celebrated with daily fun, entertainment, and dress up days.

To start the week on Monday, Jan. 31, students and staff will dress up for Pajama Day.

On Tuesday, Feb. 1, the dress-up theme will be Dress as a person or professional who exemplifies faith, excellence, or service. The schools will also have a free class period.

Wednesday, Feb. 2, will be Dress Your Best Day. There will also be an all-school Mass at 9 a.m. at St. Francis de Sales in Ossian. Students will also complete service projects. At 1 p.m., there will be a variety show and at 2 p.m., Mrs. Kriener and Mrs. Busarow will be “Silly Stringed” since students exceeded the pre-Christmas sale goal of SCRIP cards.

On Thursday, Feb. 3, the dress up theme will be Dress as Your Favorite Fairytale/Storybook Character Day. Students will also have Missoula Theater workshops. Thursday will also be Pets and Popsicles day. From 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., a drive-through soup supper will be held in Festina. The event will feature advance ticket sales only, which can be purchased at Luana Savings Bank in Ossian. 

Friday, Feb. 4, will be St. Theresa Clothing Day with the Missoula Theater performance being held at 1 p.m. at the Spillville location. The play will be “Rumplestiltskin.”

In addition to daily celebrations, activities, and dress up days, students will be receiving the school-wide rewards for the Holiday SCRIP contest.
