Washington School for Girls celebrates Catholic Schools Week. Every year, we take this time to reflect on what it means to be a Catholic school, and how we can incorporate those values into every day of learning. The week began with an activity in which students decorated their classroom doors with artistic depictions of WSG’s core values — Faith, Joy, Goodness, Generosity, Perseverance, Confidence, Peacemaking, and Excellence. These beautiful doors brought color to our hallways and served as a reminder of our commitment to WSG’s core values. The remainder of the week, we celebrated Giving, Service, Students, Teachers, and Staff.
During Religion class students worked in solidarity with the Ladies of Charity to prepare bags for the Food Pantry. Giving back to the community is such an important part of our school as well as our Catholic identity. Amani, 5th Grade, said, “My favorite part of Catholic Schools Week was learning more about God and spending time with my SAS (Sisterhood Advisory Sets) group.” Our school community looks forward to continuing the year with a re-energized dedication to our Catholic values!
