Aquinas showcases students’ work at Valley View Mall


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) – National Catholic Schools Week ends Saturday and to participate, Aquinas Catholic Schools put together a showcase of their students' work.

Thursday through Saturday the school set up an Education Expo at the Valley View Mall.

They hosted a regional spelling bee, performances from the elementary and middle school choirs,and displayed the work of students grades K-12.

Organizers said it's a way to show what faith-based learning is all about.

"Whether someone has students in our schools or not, the students that we produce obviously become future citizens of our community. So we want to showcase to the community all the great things going on, the way we're forming young people to take leadership in our community in the future," said Dr. Kurt Nelson, president of Aquinas Catholic Schools.

Aquinas has more than 1,000 students and staff said in some way, they all contributed to the event.

The Expo is in its 10th year, according to Nelson.
