Bishop Heelan Schools celebrate Catholic Schools Week

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -- It's Catholic Schools Week across the country, and students at Bishop Heelan Catholic Schools are getting to celebrate.

Thursday, students from Mater Dei held a carnival.

Students in grades 6, 7 and 8 planned the carnival, from games and activities to clowns and prizes.

Elementary school kids then joined the middle schoolers for a morning of fun and celebration.

"Catholic schools week is just a week where we celebrate who we are, what we do, our faith and our belief in God," said 5th Grade Teacher Karen Fry.

Following the carnival, the kids got to enjoy an indoor picnic lunch.

Tomorrow, high schoolers from Heelan will deliver cans of food that were collected this week to the Siouxland Food Pantry.
