ADULT SOCIAL EVENTS
There are several events held throughout the school year to give the parents of the school an opportunity to socialize and mingle. Usually there is one general event such as a Trivia Night, Comedy Sportz, or a Brewers game. In addition to this general event there is an annual holiday bus shopping trip to Chicago. Finally, there are usually two informational meetings within the school year. These meetings address timely topics or concerns of parents, such as understanding Common Core or tips for the flu and cold season.
RUN FOR FAITH
Run for Faith is a club for middle school runners that parallels the endurance of a sport like running with the endurance of one’s faith. The club meets over the course of 12 weeks and there are guest speakers who speak about running and spiritual life. At the conclusion of the program participants attempt to complete either a 5K or half marathon. We will also celebrate with a dinner.
HIGH INTEREST DAY
For one day every year volunteers from the school, parish and community share their unique talents, interests and hobbies with the students of Holy Apostles. Some of the offerings include cooking, arts & crafts, model building, woodworking, robotics, science, and sports. Students prioritize their choices and then on High Interest Day they are given five of them. They start the day celebrating mass and then move from class to class.
SHARE YOUR FAITH DAY
Students choose a special person or people to invite to mass and, afterward, an open house throughout the school. Students and their guests can enjoy treats made especially for that day, and then students can show their special guests their classroom and all the other places in the school where they spend their day.
The older students of the school buddy up with the younger students. Throughout the school year the buddies typically attend a field trip together, make gifts for one another, meet up in the classroom for activities, and sit together at every school mass.
