Faith. Excellence. Service. This is what Catholic Schools are all about! We are proud to celebrate National Catholic Schools Week which has been in existence for 49 years. This annual week long celebration is filled with Masses, Open Houses, and many activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, we focus on the value Catholic education provides to our young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation. Please enjoy these photos of our fantastic week here at SPS!
