ESCANABA — Catholic Schools Week (CSW) 2018 was a dynamic week at Holy Name Catholic School in Escanaba. This year’s theme, “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” focuses on the value that a Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.

To highlight the week, a special Mass was celebrated with students on Thursday, Feb. 1, followed by Entrepreneur Day, where students used their talents to help the less fortunate. Classes made items to sell to their fellow students, with proceeds from Entrepreneur Day going to Holy Name’s adopted school in Honduras. In total, Holy Name Catholic School raised $2,317.56 for their adopted school. Finally, to wrap up the week, on Friday, Holy Name students wore their Holy Name t-shirts for Spirit Day and enjoyed a student talent show in the afternoon.

Holy Name Catholic School is located at 409 So. 22nd Street. Please call the school office at 786-7550 for more information.
