Celebrate Literacy Across the Curriculum!

Thursday, January 25th 5:30-7:00

Students and their parents are invited to kick off Catholic Schools’ Week by exploring literacy across the curriculum during our annual open house. Students are encouraged to share with their parents some of the highlights of literacy experiences happening in their classrooms. Families are welcome to tour not only their own children’s classrooms, but others throughout the school as well. Discover literacy across the curriculum in action by viewing middle school students’ science fair projects on display in the gym. Celebrate the incredible learning taking place at St. Vincent’s!
