Catholic Schools Week is in full swing at St. Joseph Catholic School in Verona.

The school began its celebration Jan. 26 by hosting a family-fun night where teachers cooked for 150 guests. On Jan. 28 the school had what it called a “Sundae Monday,” where students were treated to ice cream treats.

The school will host various events throughout the week, including a performance of the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera and a Valentine’s cards decorating day, said Julie Madera, the school’s parent teachers group president.

St. Joseph Catholic School has 107 students enrolled in kindergarten through 8 th grade, according to its website.

Catholic Schools Week, sponsored by the National Catholic Educational Association, is a national celebration of Catholic education that began in 1974. This year’s celebration is from Jan. 27 to Feb. 2.
