The students and staff at St. Rose Catholic School recently celebrated Catholic Schools Week with a wide variety of activities such as; first through third grade spent an afternoon rotating the classes. Kindra Ervin showed a movie that dealt with the saints, while Johna Walter played a Bingo game that was designed to teach about the Catholic faith. In Megan Reed's class, students planned, wrote and displayed acrostic poems based on the words "St. Rose."
Each morning, Roxanne Demeter read a clue about a saint and each class tried to guess to which saint she was referring. When students visited the library, Mrs. Medaugh also had a variety of activities planned. Among them were Saint Word Searches, Bible Trivia, and making book marks.
Grades 5-8 participated in daily contests that were designed to increase the students' knowledge about their local church, the Perry County Consortium, the Columbus Diocese, as well as other aspects about the Mass and the music used in the Church. The top three teams were treated to a pizza party in the school library.
Also, Gail Finck and Sue Richmond had the Communication Arts classes write short essays about what their catholic Education means to them. The primary classes also wrote similar essays.
