January 26, 2020 – West Bend, WI – This week, January 26 – 31, Holy Angels in West Bend will join schools throughout the country in celebrating Catholic Schools Week. The local theme for the West Bend Catholic schools is “Behold I make all things new.”
Catholic schools continue to be the good news in what schools can provide in a community of faith.
In addition to a strong core curriculum, there is a continued emphasis at Holy Angels on fine arts and world languages. Holy Angels students use a variety of technologies as tools for learning…junior high students use personal Chromebooks as part of their daily experience. The Project Lead the Way curriculum and Robotics Club offer pre-engineering components for junior high students. The Resource Learning Centers provide a multitude of enrichment opportunities and additional learning support.
Over and above the curriculum, Catholic faith is emphasized at Holy Angels. In fact, the Archdiocese of Milwaukee has awarded Holy Angels School with Exemplary Recognition in the area of Catholic Identity and Mission.
During Catholic Schools Week, students and staff will celebrate many of the important aspects of the school which make it special: academics, faith formation, extra-curriculars, community building, family involvement.
Below is a note from Holy Angels Principal Anne Wiese.
There are many activities planned for the week. Some of them are educational; some are spiritual; some are just plain fun. Our school’s mission calls us to form community, learn the Good News, participate in prayer and worship, and (in a special way this year) to be of service to others. There is one special activity that we’ve done in connection with Catholic Schools Week which helps focus on our school theme for this year of “Behold I Make All Things New.”
The week’s activities will include:
- Monday – Catholic Quiz Bowl (8:15 – primary, 9:00 – intermediate, 10:30 – junior high)
- Tuesday – Service activities
- Wednesday – Choir performance from the West Bend High School Choir
- Thursday – Students from Cabrini and Holy Trinity will join the HAS students for lunch, activities, and Mass
- Friday – Student/Faculty basketball game at 1:40 p.m.
