Delight and Distinction for #CSW20

January 31, 2020

Happy Catholic Schools Week to the more than 90 schools we’ve worked with over the years! We feel the amazing energy during our school visits and love the storytelling on social media. The Science Fairs and Olympiads. Community Service Days. Teachers of the Year and Former Teacher winners. School Masses, Vocations Days and Religion Bees. Visits from families, friends and a senator alum. Chinese New Year festivities. PJ, Wacky Tacky and Messy Hair Days.

We’re thrilled about the Goal-busting Days of Giving. Three such events yielded record highs along with big thanks from St. Mary Magdalen School (Wilmington, DE), big thanks from Notre Dame Academy (Minnetonka, MN) and news coverage for St. John Catholic School (Westminster, MD). Congrats to all schools for your community building and results!

Here are just a few #CSW20 reports during this time of education and celebration: 


Saints Peter and Paul School (West Chester, PA) on STREAM Day for Catholic Schools Week: “Sixth graders design and build aqueducts for an an ancient city in Rome.
