There was extra excitement over the lunch hour at Holy Name Catholic School Tuesday. Parents were invited to eat with their children as part of Catholic Schools Week.
The kindergartners, first and second graders welcomed their parents for the first lunch shift, and the parents seemed to be enjoying the meal just as much as their students.
Daryl Williams wanted to come spend the lunch hour with his six-year-old son, Miles. "It's good to show that education and everything like that matters whether you're public or private, everything matters, if parents will come up here and support, and show how good it is, that carries on to the kids as well, and it's great, I'm loving it, I'm enjoying it."
Jennifer Moss enjoyed lunch with her seven-year-old son, Carter. "It re-emphasizes the level of education that they receive, especially here at Holy Name, they have an excellent program, and they work religion into their program, and the kids just seem to thrive here, and it's such a small community, that all the families know each other and it's a wonderful learning environment."
Holy Name will have a special celebration throughout the rest of the week.
