SFACA Celebrates Catholic Schools Week, January 27 – February 1, 2019

The theme for National Catholic Schools Week is “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed”. The theme encompasses the core products and values that can be found in Catholic schools across the country.  The logo brings the theme to life.  The open book made up of multi-colored pages symbolizes how all areas of Catholic schools blend together, with faith – as symbolized by the cross – at the forefront.  Catholic schools are vibrant, dynamic, and excellent. Please join us for our planned activities and visit the classrooms during our Open Houses.  We look forward to celebrating SFACA with you.
