Catholic Schools Week does not celebrate our differences, but instead celebrates the one thing we have in common: we are all Catholic!
Catholic Schools Week shows our Jesuit Identity because it shows we are Catholic. Showing that we are Catholic is important because it shows God that we believe in our faith. Expressing our belief in God is the most important thing about Catholics Schools Week.
The main reason we have Catholic Schools Week is to have fun in the presence of God. God loves every one of us as individuals. Catholics Schools Week is important in many ways. Each way is like a puzzle piece, so when you put them altogether you get an awesome puzzle, that is Catholics Schools Week.

During Catholic schools week we get to have free dress, dress like a teacher, and get to wear pajamas. But why do we celebrate it? It’s a question that I’ve been pondering for a while, so I did my research and found the answer. It started way back in 1974. It was created to celebrate who we are as a Catholic school. All across the nation kids just like you celebrate all of the activities that we do. Well they might be a little different, but everywhere people celebrate being Catholic. It’s a celebration of knowing that we are a school for God. It’s to recognize the importance, the value, and the contribution of Catholicism.
It’s important that we celebrate who we are and our identity as Catholics. The definition of catholic is “including a wide variety of things; all-embracing,” which means that we include everyone, no matter who they are. Everyone is special and we should love and respect everyone’s identity.That is why we made our identity posters. That is what Catholic Schools Week is all about, celebrating all of our identities. Your identity is who you are. No matter who you are, you have an identity that makes you amazing and totally original. So yeah, Catholic Schools Week is awesome but not just because of the free dress.
