Students at St. Bernard Middle School recently observed Catholic Schools Week by celebrating the theme Service. Middle School students carried out a full week of activities in conjunction with the celebration from activities in the classroom to spreading good cheer in the community. Headmaster, John Tekulve asked parents to encourage their children to look for ways to be of service. “Serving others does not have to be a large project. It is not the size of the deed done, but the thoughtfulness that counts,” Tekulve said.
St. Vincent de Paul at Sacred Heart Church in Cullman was the recipient of penny drop proceeds and a jacket, coat and sweater drive held at the Middle School. Tekulve commended the students for being stewards of the community. “We appreciate the parents of these children for helping reinforce the rewards of volunteerism,” commented Tekulve.
Students competed in contest throughout the week involving a candy guess, Geography Bee, Math Bee, Religion Bee, and a Science Bee. Students dressed in career day uniforms, and were allowed to celebrate a tacky day as part of the celebration.
