Catholic Schools Week 2019

NEW CELEBRATION DATES: FEBRUARY 4-8!

'Updated' Updated Schedule--Big DAWG/Little DAWG day is now on Thursday!

BLESSING BOX DONATION UPDATE!

Listed below are the special dress days for CSW 2019. On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday (February 4, 5, 6, 8) students are asked to bring a donation to earn the privilege of dressing in the day's attire. Monday's donation is cash to help offset the costs of Aquin's new blessing box. The other days' donations are items. If you are unable to provide the item listed, the Senior High Student Board has set the following as an alternative for the item donation:


  • Full Week: High School Campus: $9 for all 4 Days--must be paid on Monday
  • Full Week: St. Joe's Campus: $5 for all 4 Days--must be paid on Monday
  • Individual Days: HS Campus $3 per day
  • Individual Days: St. Joe's Campus $1 per day

Each year, Aquin celebrates Catholic Schools Week. This year, our celebration will run from February 4-8. We invite all of our students, families, staff, alumni and supporters to join us as we 'Escape the Ordinary' to learn, serve, lead and succeed!


At Aquin, we strive to 'escape the ordinary' every day . . . in our teachings, in our actions, in our choices, in our lives. CSW is a time to celebrate those efforts and focus on what Catholic Schools provide each of us.

Aquin's Blessing Box

Aquin will be collecting donations for an 'Aquin Blessing Box' which will be constructed and installed on the Aquin High School Campus this Spring. A 'Blessing Box' is a small free 'pantry' of non-perishable items for those who are in need. Aquin's Blessing Box will contain 3 sections: Food Items, Hygiene Items, Clothing Items. (An example of a blessing box is shown on the right.)


The Aquin students and staff will regulate and maintain this box, but will also accept donations to keep the box supplied year-round. To get this project started, we will have 4 collection days (Wednesday is a dress-up day so no collection will be taken). To earn the privilege of dressing in the day's themes, each student should bring the donation to their homeroom or 1st period teacher on that day.


The schedule of the days and donations are:

  • Monday: $3 HS Campus/$1 St. Joe's Campus (for the supplies to build the Blessing Box)
  • Tuesday: 2 Canned Goods
  • Thursday: 1 Hygiene Item
  • Friday: 1 pair of Socks or Mittens, Scarf, Hat, etc.
