Friendship Week

Saint Hedwig School's Friendship Week was filled with friends, laughs, and a lot of love. Students in grades 1 - 8 met their friendship partners and participated in many wonderful events this week. Thank you to student council for helping us all create many lasting memories!


On Sept. 12th, the 10th Annual John R. Russell Golf Classic was in full swing. St. Hedwig parents, alumni, and community supporters gathered together for a day on the golf course followed by an evening of fun. The After Party Cocktail Hour kicked off a lovely evening that included a banquet dinner, raffle prizes, and auction items galore. St. Hedwig community members had a blast participating in a decade old tradition that raises money for the school.

Summer Reading and Solidarity in the Third Grade Classroom

"In solidarity there is strength; We can move mountains when we're united."
- Unknown

This year, Saint Hedwig School kicked off a new summer reading program based on the Catholic Church’s Social Justice Themes: Care for God’s Creation, Solidarity, Call to Family, and Human Dignity. The Church's social teaching is a rich treasure of wisdom about building a just society and living lives of holiness amidst the challenges of modern society. Students read one assigned book in their social justice theme. Upon returning to school in August, students began completing assignments across the curriculum based on the books they read.

In third grade, students were required to read the book,Who Was Martin Luther King Jr.? This third grade chapter book chronicles the life of Martin Luther King Jr. and the challenges he faced as an African American civil rights leader. This book was chosen because it ties in beautifully in to the third and fourth grade social justice theme of solidarity.
