During the week of January 27 -31, 2014, Everest Collegiate High School and Everest Academy joined Catholic schools across the nation in celebrating the gift of Catholic education. This year’s national theme was “Celebrating Communities of Faith, Service and Knowledge.” Everest students participated in a variety of planned activities to celebrate, including themed dress up days, class competitions, and apostolic projects. What a beautiful celebration of the blessings of Everest!
