It’s especially busy at St. Mary’s School, with a host of special Catholic Schools Week activities planned through Saturday.
A 10:30 a.m. Mass at St. Mary’s kicked off the week Sunday, following a book fair open house and an Echoes basketball game against Balaton. A Knights of Columbus free throw contest followed.
Monday was “PJ/Crazy Hair Day.” On Tuesday, students were encouraged to dress up like a television or movie character, and an egg hunt was planned.
And on Wednesday, children were invited to dress up like their favorite animal. Parents joined students for lunch.
