Catholic Schools Week is one of the favorite weeks of the school year for many. For academy students at Everest Collegiate High School & Academy, the week is full of spiritual, apostolic, and competitive activities. Each day has a specific theme in which students celebrate an aspect of Catholic schools: our community, our students, our nation, vocations, and faculty, staff, and volunteers. Students also had special dress theme days each day: Mountaineer Monday; sports team shirt/jersey; red, white, and blue day; wacky colors/twin day; and spirit day. Here are some of the top 10 moments of the week in photos:
1. Recess Tournaments/Games: from tug-of-war to lightening, paper airplane contest, memory, telephone, and more!
