Programs integrate academic subjects

P.J. Mooney, an eighth-grader at St. Pius X/St. Leo School in Omaha, likes combining science, technology, engineering and math as part of an after-school program that currently has students suggesting ways to make the school fully accessible to the handicapped, more energy-efficient and centrally air-conditioned.

Faith formation continues after school

Good things happen when students gather after school to pray and talk.

Just ask Chloe Fecci, a seventh-grader at St. Margaret Mary School in Omaha and member of the parish’s Junior Legion of Mary.

Students and school officials from Omaha, Lincoln and Grand Island joined the governor, including at far right Patrick Slattery, superintendent of Archdiocese of Omaha schools, with sixth-grader Max Lauritsen from Ss. Peter and Paul School in Omaha, and two of Lauritsen’s schoolmates, fifth-grader Elena Ruiz (white sweater) and fourth-grader Lucia Vargas (red sweater), on the left.

Schools highlight faith, academics, service

Students at Catholic schools in Howells, Dodge and Clarkson will gather Jan. 29 to share faith, fun and food while celebrating National Catholic Schools Week, just one example of community-building that takes a variety of forms every day in schools across the archdiocese, one organizer said.
