On Wednesday of Catholic Schools Week, parents or grandparents were invited to have a picnic lunch with their students in Kindergarten through 5th Grade. For the students whose family members were unable to attend, Student Council members shared lunch with them. The Peace Family Center was alive with colorful blankets and lots of love and fun!
A Catholic Schools Week tradition is our Tumbling Taco Tuesday! Thanks to the generosity of J. K. Tank Rentals, the students spend time jumping, tumbling and sliding on various inflatables. Home & School parents prepare taco in a bag for a wonderful lunch.
The Fifth Grade students organized this year’s canned food drive. Close to 2000 items were collected and brought to the 18th Street Center, Catholic Charities. What a way to make your mark!
Thank you to the Mt. Olivet Volunteer Fire Department and the Wheeling Fire Department for bringing the Safety House to our school. Our younger students all made a visit and learned how to prevent fires and what to do if they should be in a fire. This visit was so fun – Kendyl’s dad was there and so was an alumni’s dad. We also got cool hats!!
Thank you to the Marshall County School Bus Drivers who came to our school to teach the students about safety while riding or walking near school buses.
Our First and Second Grade Students attended an event held at the Ohio Valley Mall – Malls and Retailers Unite Against Bullying. After listening to entertaining presentations on bullying, they placed their hand print and name on a banner to show their support to stop bullying. Thank you to the Ohio Valley Mall and the Belmont County Sheriff department for your support!
We hosted our Parish Senior Luncheon and then the entire student body joined them to watch the laser presentation. Students and adults alike learned how lasers are produced and had fun watching the awesome show!
