An Open House, a visit to a local Geriatric Center, and reaching out to other Catholic schools will highlight this year's observance of Catholic Schools Week at Our Lady of the Angels Academy, Lansford.

The events are part of the nationwide celebration of Catholic education during the week of January 30 to February 5. This year's theme, "Catholic Schools: A+ For America," celebrates the value Catholic schools add to the nation. With high academic standards grounded in strong moral values and high graduation rates, Catholic schools and their graduates make a significant contribution to our society.

Our Lady of the Angels Academy invites prospective students, their families, and community residents to visit at its Open House on Sunday, Jan. 30 from 12-2 p.m. to see how our school benefits Panther Valley.

Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about programs for preschoolers to eight grade students. School tours will be given.
