This year's theme is "Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service."St. Mary Magdalen School in Media will hold an Open House on Sunday, Jan. 26 and Monday, Jan. 27 from 9 to 10 a.m. All are welcome to attend. Find more details here.
St. Mary Magdalen 1st graders will have the opportunity to interview their teachers during Catholic Schools Week.
The tiny news reporters will carry their clip boards and ask the teachers important questions like, "What is your eye color?" and "What is your job?"
Once the information gathering is complete, the students will draw a picture of the teacher they have interviewed. No matter the artistic talent, both teacher and student enjoy this fun Catholic Schools Week event at St. Mary Magdalen.
