St. Michael Catholic School celebrates National Catholic Schools Week

By Martha Jacob –

St. Michael Catholic School in Ripley is celebrating National Catholic Schools Week, Jan. 29 through Feb 4.
“This year’s theme for the week is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service,” said Andy Arn, principal of St. Michael School. “On Monday the students celebrated with a “Crazy Hair Day” where the kids could wear their hair any way they wanted to, and there were certainly some unusual hair styles.”
According to Principal Arn, on Tuesday the students celebrated with “Career Dress-up Day. The 8th grade students represented St. Michael Catholic School at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral, in downtown Cincinnati with a Catholic School Week mass.
In the afternoon at 1 p.m. in the Parish Hall, Father Byers, as well as those of other vocations spoke to the students about their faith journey, hearing God’s call a vocation and answer questions from the students.
On Wednesday it was St. Michael School Spirit Day. The kids received t-shirts on Friday, Jan. 27 so the t-shirts and jeans were worn all day. After school lunch, the students took a bus to Town and Country Lanes in Aberdeen to bowl two games.
Thursday was Team Day and students could dress up in the apparel of their favorite high school, college or professional sports team and on Friday it will be Crazy Hat and Crazy Socks Day and students are invited to wear crazy socks and crazy hats after mass.
“We appreciate the support we receive from the community, and we encourage our students to give back through service projects all year,” Principal Arn said,”It’s part of our effort to provide a well-rounded education.”
