St. Anthony School, Florence

St. Anthony School celebrated Catholic education during Catholic Schools Week, Jan. 30 to Feb. 4, with something for everyone: including a day for service projects, crazy socks, pajamas, parent appreciation, talent show, book fair, open house and more. Activities reflected the themes of “Enlightened in Faith, Embraced as Family, Empowered with Knowledge, and Enriched through Service.”

St. Anthony students took part in Masses at St. Anthony Church, prayed the rosary for world peace, collected enough peanut butter and jelly to fill five large boxes to donate to Lighthouse Ministries’ food pantry, and made cards and placemats for residents of local elder care homes. 

Parent Appreciation Day concluded a successful and fun week of service and celebrations with lunch for parents and grandparents.
