Every Friday during the season of Lent, the school community will continue the prayer service, Stations of the Cross. We take this spiritual journey with Jesus remembering the ultimate sacrifice for us.

Pi Day

Wyoming Area Catholic School Community will be commemorating Math, Albert Einstein, love of Math and anything Math related on National PI Day, March 14. To assist our school community in promoting our celebration will be Ryan Leckey from WNEP TV. He will be here, live, at 5:00 a.m. and throughout the morning with students, teachers, and administrators of Wyoming Area Catholic. Some of the activities scheduled for the morning are PI eating contest, modeling PI shirts created by students, and PI day Scavenger Hunt.

We know that 3.14 is the magic number for the day. During the week, students collected 314+ cans for a local food pantry, collected “round money” for the Holy Childhood Association, and memorized as many numbers in PI. The students who memorized the most will win a prize.
