As Cardinal Stritch High School students headed back to school after the holidays , they headed back to something a little different than “business as usual.”
From Jan. 6 through Jan. 9, teachers and staff presented “Seminar Week,” where they demonstrated their personal talents, gifts and passions to teach students about a wide range of topics.
Students had the opportunity to participate in two or four-day seminars, choosing two from 20 topics such as photography, swing dancing, exploring their Catholic identity, dog training, marriage and relationships and even rocket launching.
“This is a great opportunity for students and teachers to have learning experiences away from the traditional schedule,” said Kelli Malinowski, vice principal. “We created ‘Seminar Week’ based on ideas generated during a teacher and staff stewardship retreat.
“Our goal was to give our teachers the opportunity to teach students using some of their God-given gifts and talents,” Malinowski said. “Stewardship is a way of life at Cardinal Stritch High School.
“These seminars allow our students to see our teachers as stewards who talk about, encourage and share their gifts in the broadest sense possible.”
