Mayor Bill May plans to proclaim today through Saturday, Feb. 1, as "Catholic Schools Week."
Good Shepherd School and all 332 of its students plan to join other Catholic schools across the nation in promoting and celebrating Catholic school education.
Stephanie Sims, assistant principal of Good Shepherd, said this year's theme is "Making a World of Difference." The purpose is to illustrate the impact that Catholic schools can have not only in this community, but also across the United States as well as worldwide.
"We feel like Catholic education makes a big difference in our lives," Sims said. "It's not necessarily the religious aspect. I think it's more that we have that sense of community as not just people who come together as a school but people who come together to worship together and share that faith."
Good Shepherd has plans for a week filled with different activities that will help make a difference in the world, the community, the parish, the family and the school, Sims said.
