On Wednesday, January 30, we were honored to welcome Virginia Beach City Mayor Bobby Dyer to our school as a part of our National Catholic Schools Week celebration. Mayor Dyer toured the campus accompanied by our Principal Peggy Boon and some of our student ambassadors. He also spoke with our AP US History class and a few others.
National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2019 is January 27 - February 2. Each day throughout the week, schools focus on a daily theme. Wednesday’s theme was “Celebrating our Nation.” On National Appreciation Day for Catholic schools, students, families, educators and other Catholic school supporters communicate the value of Catholic education to government leaders. They share information with leaders on the significant contributions Catholic schools make to the nation and their role in preparing students to be good citizens. They pray for the nation and recognize all those who serve it.
