Last week at Our Lady of the Snows, we celebrated Catholic Schools Week. On Sunday we celebrated our parish with a student-led mass at 10AM and open house. During our open house, current and prospective families were able to see demo classes throughout the day to experience what a lesson is like in a classroom at OLS.
On Monday, we celebrated the community with dressing in our OLS spirit wear or as a snow leopard. Each class cheered each other on while playing a minute to win it game where the top students attempted to beat Mrs. Avis and in the afternoon the whole school played Loteria with their faith buddy classes.
On Tuesday, we celebrated our students with wearing our pajamas to school. In the morning the teachers switched and picked up a different class from the morning meeting and taught a lesson. We also enjoyed a performance by the Marist Marching band and in the afternoon all the teachers turned their classrooms into movie theaters. The students signed up for a movie to watch and received a movie ticket, during the movies Mrs. Avis came around with a concession cart and offered our moviegoers with popcorn, fruit snacks and juice pouches for a small “fee” of a fist bump, a high five and a dance.
On Wednesday, we celebrated our nation by dressing as a positive famous American. Our middle schoolers took this opportunity to create a Wax Museum in the afternoon for our younger students where they could learn about the influential Americans.
On Thursday, we celebrated vocations by dressing up as our future vocation. After Mass the school hosted a First Responders and Parents breakfast to thank first responders for all that they do.
On Friday, we celebrated our faculty and staff with the 8th graders teaching a lesson in every class and treating the teachers to a child-free luncheon. We also celebrated the 100th day of school on that day so everyone dressed as if they were 100 years old.
Our Lady of the Snows students and staff definitely know how to show their school spirit and Catholic Schools Week 2024 was no exception!
