At Lakewood Catholic Academy we celebrated Catholic Schools Week 2015 in some amazing ways . . .
On SUNDAY we hosted a very successful Open House where we welcomed new and interested families to our campus. Our faculty, students and parent volunteers took pride in sharing all the great things that take place here at LCA.
On MONDAY we joined in prayer as a school family and participated in Mass led by Bishop Lennon.
On TUESDAY all of our students put their hands to use to be of service to our friends locally, nationally and internationally. Our K-4th grade students created cards to be shared with our supporting parishes to thank them for their support of Catholic Education. Our 5-8th grade students created hand-made Rosaries that will be given out on service trips. We also had the opportunity to hear from LCA alumni who are students at St. Joseph Academy about their experiences of service. LCA welcomed back to campus: Corinne Baker, Nicole Jamieson, Kerry Jamieson, Colleen FitzGerald, Juliana Withers and Allison Saracina.
On WEDNESDAY the whole school enjoyed an amazing concert by The Trash Talkers of St. Edward High School.
On THURSDAY we were inspired by guest speakers. Our K-4th grade students participated in interactive scripture stories with Mr. Bob Kloos of Beacon Street Ministries. Our 5-8th grade students were moved by the powerful story of Justin Bachman a young man who founded the organization Honor Good Deeds.
On FRIDAY we had a blast with the traditional (and always entertaining) Faculty versus Student Basketball Games.
Thank you to all who helped to make this week possible including our phenomenal teachers, parent volunteers and our Saints Service Organization.
May God continue to bless Lakewood Catholic Academy and may we remember to Live Christ Always!
