St. Theresa Grade School Wraps Up Catholic School Week with Food Drive
Jackie Lyons' 5th and 6th grade class came in first place among the inter-classroom food drive competition with Marsha Stinde's PreK-Kindergarten Class in a close second. Both classrooms donated 200 cans a piece, however the win was given to the 5th and 6th grade as they have fewer students.
St. Theresa Principal Marienne Larimer called the week a success.
"It has been a fantastic week for the Catholic School's week at St. Theresa's. I think the students had a lot of fun and learned something along the way" Larimer said.
St. Theresa students participated in a sock hop and drug dog demonstration to finish off the week. The theme of this year's Catholic Schools Week was Service, and featured coffee and donuts for parents and grandparents in service occupations on Wednesday.
