Catholic Schools Week Filled With Activity


On Sunday, January 28th, this year’s Distinguished Graduate Award was presented at the 8:00am Mass to Nancy Mehring (1953) in recognition of a lifetime of service to the school, parish and community. Past recipients include: Noreen Laufer (1994), Ted Casper (1995), Judy DuCharme (1996), Herb Tennies (1997), Harry German (1998), Michael Gonring (1999), Andy Gonring (2000), and Jim Schmidt (2001).


Monday was Big/Little Buddies Day as older and younger students get together to share their experiences of Holy Angels School and to enjoy some activities together.

Monday was also Kindergarten Roundup Day. The K4 RoundUp was held in the Cedar Room with K4 teacher Barb Duren explaining the two- and three-day program. Families also had a chance to tour the school. The K5 RoundUp was held in the Walnut Room. The program was explained by K5 Teacher Kris Matthews.


There were many participants in this year’s Catholic Quiz Bowl as teams of students in grades 1 through 8 matched their Catholic knowledge.


Wednesday began with a Prayer Service prepared by the second graders. Following the Prayer Service, the students surprised Mr. Sternig on his 50th birthday as they pulled out life-size pictures of the principal from his grade school years. Each classroom is donating 50 items in Mr. Sternig’s name to the Full Shelf Food Panty as their present. In the afternoon, there was be a performance by the St. Mary Springs High School Chorus. The Chorus traveled from Fond du lac to help celebrate CSW.


Parents, friends and other guests were invited to an Open House from 11:30 until 1:30pm. Classrooms were filled with guests which also included many grandparents. As a special treat, grandparents (and adopted grandparents) joined with students to share a bag lunch with their grandchildren during the lunch hours.


The annual Student-Faculty Basketball Game, featuring the 8th grade boys team and the Holy Angels faculty (and “guests”) was played in the afternoon. The score was close throughout the entire game and it looked like the faculty would come away with a victory. The teachers held a one point lead and called timeout with 4 seconds on the clock. After a timeout, the students stole the inbound pass and drove in for the winning layup at the buzzer.


Families had a chance to celebrate Catholic Schools Week at the Super Fun Family Night. Parents and children enjoyed a variety of activities which had been planned for families throughout the night. The Super Fun Family Night also featured the Super Snack Bar with all sorts of delicious snack items. Many new families also joined in the excitement as the Gym/Walnut/Cedar Rooms were filled with families and fun!
