The St. Stanislaus Kostka 8th grade class of 1978 is looking to hold a 35th year reunion June 29, 2013. I have already at this point tracked down a third of our class but still have about 60 alumni to locate. If you are one of these students, or are aware of anyone who might be, please have them contact me via email at Lorraine.firstname.lastname@example.org or on Facebook where my full contact name is Lorraine Sadlowski Reno. When making contact via email, please include “Class of 1978” as the subject line. I am looking forward to many responses. Thank you!
The Catholic Schools Week starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2012 is January 29 to February 5. There are 132,656 private and public schools in the United States, according to Department of Education statistics. Of those, 6,980 are Catholic elementary or secondary schools. What sets these Catholic schools apart from the pack? Three things, say educators, parents and community leaders: faith, academics and service. So, fittingly, the 2012 Catholic Schools Week theme focuses on these three priorities.

– Service, the giving of one’s time and effort to help others, is taught both as an expression of faith and good citizenship. (from NCEA page)
