Father Ed Ogden kicked off Catholic Schools Week at Christ the Teacher Catholic School with a school Mass.

The pastor of St. Margaret of Scotland parish in Glasgow spoke about how Catholic schools save taxpayers more than $20 billion annually while instilling the values of mercy, compassion, and love.

Students marked the week with different activities each day. Grandparents and special persons enjoyed mealtimes with children on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Book Fair and Spirit Wear Store were very busy with shoppers.

The Home and School Association provided daily snacks for the faculty and staff and hosted a luncheon for them on Friday. On Saturday, Jan. 27, the group organized a free Family Bingo Night for more than 250 school families.

Members of the school community were asked to show their appreciation for the gift of Catholic education by donating to the Giving Week Challenge. The achieved $25,000 goal is earmarked for the Capital Expense Fund to cover building maintenance, upgrades, and improvements. The student body earned prizes as donation levels were reached.

Christ the Teacher Catholic School prepares students to use their God-given talents to lead successful lives, maintaining a spirit of mercy, hospitality, service and excellence. Eager learners fill the classrooms, and there is always a waiting list of students hoping to join the school.
