Catholic Schools Week

Catholic Schools Week at St. Anthony on the Lake

Welcome to Catholic Schools Week 2019! This year, we will incorporate our school theme iPromise into each day's activities! 

As a service project throughout the week, SAL will be collecting new or gently-used pajamas in all sizes, baby to adult.  The pjs will be donated to Joy House. This is a women and children's shelter in downtown Milwaukee. You may send pajamas to school all week!
 
Special thanks to those families speaking at each of the Masses on January 26th and 27th!
 
Below, you will find the dress code of the day! This is always a great week to celebrate who we are as Catholic Schools in a creative, fun (and academic) way!
