2/10/2018 CSW Appreciation Days in Lincroft, Cinnaminson
St. Leo the Great School, Lincroft, celebrated Catholic Schools Week, Jan. 28 to Feb. 3 with a myriad of activities. Father John Folchetti, pastor of St. Leo the Great Parish, began the week by leading the school community in a celebration of the Holy Mass. An open house in the school followed at which time parents had the opportunity to observe their children at work in their classrooms. On Wed. the school honored its faculty and staff for all the hard work and dedication to providing a well-rounded education for the students. Faculty and staff enjoyed lunch and special treatment throughout the day. Friday was Student Appreciation Day during which students were treated to a magic show, extra recess time, ice cream sundaes, and an interactive video game bus. The school also designated Friday as “Souper” Bowl Friday. On this day students donated cans of soup to the parish’s food pantry which supports members of the community who are most in need.

In St. Charles Borromeo School, Cinnaminson, Faculty Appreciation Day was celebrated Feb. 2 during which teachers and staff were treated to a special lunch. A highlight of the conversation was the upcoming Super Bowl that was to be played two days later. Obviously, the balloon decoration of a Philadelphia Eagles' helmet gives a pretty good indication of which team the faculty was rooting for. Courtesy photo
