CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK 2015 PROMOTES CONCEPTS AT THE HEART OF CATHOLIC EDUCATION
The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2015 is again “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” The annual observance starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2015 is January 25 to January 31. Schools typically celebrate Catholic Schools Week with Masses, open houses, and other activities for students, families, parishioners, and the community at large.

The 2015 theme was developed in 2014 in response to member requests for a theme and logo that would last more than a year, the new theme will be used for at least two more years. This will provide opportunities for schools to brand the week and their ongoing marketing activities with repeated mentions and use of a consistent logo. It’s especially appropriate that this new brand will mark National Catholic Schools Week 2015 – the 41st anniversary of this annual event.

The theme encompasses several concepts that are at the heart of a Catholic education. First, schools are communities—small families in their own right, but also members of the larger community of home, church, city and nation. Faith, knowledge and service are three measures by which any Catholic school can and should be judged.

The new logo features a swirl of colors interacting around a cross, which is at the center of all Catholic education. The vibrancy of the colors and the movement and shadows in the logo portray the inner-connectivity and community life that are present in our Catholic schools.
