Catholic Schools Week

This week is Catholic Schools Week! Woohoo! For those who don't know, Catholic Schools Week is an entire week of school dedicated to celebrating attending a Catholic School. We have many fun activities planned for this week and I can't wait to post them!

One of the fun activities we did was a door decorating contest. On our door, the students made stained glass window crosses out of tissue paper, construction paper, and contact paper. They also colored in the CSW symbol for this year and we made them into a class quilt. Sorry for the blurry picture!

Here is a close up of one of our crosses. My wonderful assistant cut out the hearts for them to put in the middle and then they placed the little tissue paper squares all around to make it look like one of the stained glass windows we see when we go to mass!

Here are our crosses hung up on our windows after the door decorating contest was over. They look SOOO much prettier on a sunny day so I will have to take another picture when it is sunny. The kids LOVED making these so we are making heart shaped ones for Valentine's Day. I can't wait!!
