I spent 17 years of my life in Catholic school (K-8 at St. Felicitas in Euclid) (9-12 at Lake Catholic in Mentor) (College at Mercyhurst College in Erie, Pa. The friendships and lessons I learned are with me every day. The teachers and employees definitely sacrifice (often times they make half of what their public school colleagues make with the same experience).
Catholic schools week is a time to celebrate the parents, staffs, and students that make the schools run! It was always a lot of fun.
