St. Bernadette's in the News for Christmas!

From the Gazette:

Although he has never been on an airplane, Tommy Harrison, 7, of Silver Spring has a passport stamped from visits to France, England, Germany and Sweden. By the end of last week, he expected to add Italy and Mexico.

Tommy and his first-grade classmates at St. Bernadette School in Silver Spring were studying Christmas customs around the world. Along the way, the students got lessons in history, geography and language arts.

This is what makes a Catholic education so special and important to preserve. Read all about it here.

How is this unique to a Catholic school?


Does it have to be unique to be in the news?

No, but you wrote that this is what makes a Catholic education so special.

I'm guessing they don't really celebrate Christmas too much in the public schools.

No, but they do at Riverdale Baptist and other non-public schools.
