Every January, Catholic schools around the country take a week to celebrate the accomplishments of their students, faculty and community during Catholic Schools Week. Eskuelan San Francisco de Borja was no different.
Catholic Schools Week is most popularly known for all its fun activities but at Eskuelan San Francisco de Borja, it is also a celebration of a special community. The strengths of a Catholic education celebrates how it has influenced a small community like Luta.
Like many Catholic schools nationwide, Eskuelan San Francisco de Borja celebrated the week with daily and fun activities scheduled for students, faculty, and parents to enjoy. The celebration gave the parents and the students a nice reminder that we are a Catholic, private school, focusing on the mixture of faith and academics. The faith, family, and community components complement the school’s challenging academics.
The theme for this year was “Catholic Schools Raise the Standards.” The goal of Catholic Schools Week is to promote the academic excellence and Catholic identity of Catholic schools in the U.S. and other countries.
Eskuelan San Francisco de Borja represents an investment in Luta’s future leaders, and the sacrifices made by Catholic school parents. Eskuelan San Francisco de Borja teaches all the things that make the Luta community the great place it is: high standards, moral values, personal responsibility and civic duty.
Eskuelan San Francisco de Borja Catholic Schools Week events kicked off with a Mass on Jan. 27 at the San Francisco de Borja Church; Jan. 28, Environmental Awareness and Reading Circle; Jan. 29, Academic Challenge Bowl and Talent Show-Singing and Dancing; Jan. 30, Forestry Presentation and tree planting; Jan. 31, Water & Boating Safety Activities; and on Feb. 1, to culminate Catholic Schools Week, Let’s Move Marianas presentation.
Eskuelan San Francisco de Borja administration, faculty, and students would like to extend their appreciation to all donors, benefactors, ESFDB board of directors, ESFDB Parent Teacher Association, parents, guardians, Rev. Fr. Charlie Borja, Rota Mayor Melchor Mendiola and his wife Estrella Mendiola, Office of the Mayor of Rota staff, Rota Department of Public Safety, Rota Department of Natural Lands & Resources, and Commonwealth Health Corp.’s Division of Public Health Project Brabu and Non-Communicable Disease/Let’s Move Marianas.
