CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK A SUCCESS
St. Maria Goretti School in Bloomfield and St. Agnes School in West Mifflin had exciting and fruitful weeks to report. From the Masses at St. Maria Goretti, where the children and grandparents blessed each other on Grandparents Day, to the volleyball game where the students and teachers competed for the win, the week was filled with exciting events such as the arrival of a police vehicle, an ambulance, and a fire truck carrying their speakers. A Book Fair, a Science Fair, and other displays throughout the school and parish, and a variety of interactions and programs made the event a week to remember.
At St. Agnes School, the 8th graders enjoyed being the school’s staff for a morning. Students now realize how much time the teachers spend in preparing the lessons, correcting work, keeping order in the room and much more. One student remarked, “I now have much more respect for the teachers for all that they do, and they all have hearts of gold.” A student who replaced the principal was exhausted after the three hours. Another student replaced the secretary and one young man, the maintenance man. The students enjoyed the carnival each classroom planned in which they raised $272 for the Chimbote Foundation. All in all, the students enjoyed Catholic Schools Week 2016.
Sister Mary John Cook, SHS, principal of St. Maria Goretti School, and Sister Cynthia Wessel, SHS, principal of St. Agnes School continue to provide strong and excellent foundations for education and opportunities for growth and development for their students. Each school is also outstanding, not only for the leadership provided by the principals, but also, for its talented and dedicated teachers and staffs.
