Crazy Day at Zion

Lutheran Schools WeekCMYKArea parochial schools are celebrating Lutheran Schools Week and Catholic Schools Week Jan. 27 through Feb. 2. Above, fourth through eighth grade students at Zion Lutheran School in Cologne kicked off the week with Crazy Day on Monday, when students and some staff dessed up in the craziest costumes they could think of and teachers swapped classrooms for an hour. The theme for National Lutheran Schools Week this year is “Baptized for This Moment.” The theme for Catholic Schools Week is ““Catholic Schools Raise the Standards.” Local schools took part in a variety of fun events this week. Look for additional coverage of those celebrations in next week’s Times. (Times staff photo by Paul Downer)
