Catholic Schools Week is in full swing at St. Joseph Catholic School in Verona.

The school began its celebration Jan. 26 by hosting a family fun night where teachers cooked for 150 guests. On Jan. 28, the school held “Sundae Monday,” where students were treated to ice cream treats.

The school will host various events throughout the week, including a performance of the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera and a Valentine card decorating day, said Julie Madera, the school’s parent teachers group president.

St. Joseph Catholic School has 107 students enrolled in kindergarten through eighth grade, according to its website.

Catholic Schools Week, sponsored by the National Catholic Educational Association, is a national celebration of Catholic education that began in 1974. This year’s celebration is from Jan. 27 to Feb. 2.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
