Incorrect. They are to lead based on what their constituents want.
UrKidsWillPay - QND sees slight enrollment dip - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
As the parent of QND grads and a QND alum myself and the parent of current QHS students, I can say that the biggest advantage that QND supplies to its graduates is the intangible "cache" attached to a private school education. College admissions and job recruiters look at and react to the private school education differently than they do to a public school education. This is not without good reason…

It seems pretty obvious his point was, business "A" trying to make a living is interfering with the city of Quincy to do a cheaper job so to make things "fair" we will just make it illegal to do business with anyone other than us. Seems kind of tyrannical in a way, which to me goes against the principals of the constitution.

Blessed Sacrament Catholic School celebrates the strength of families during Catholic Schools Week

6 months, 3 weeks ago by 0

On Sunday, January 26, they will kick off the week with a special, family-led Mass at 4 p.m.

 

Each year Catholic schools throughout the nation are highlighted for one week with special activities for the students and their families celebrating their Catholic heritage. This year, Blessed Sacrament Catholic School will begin and end Catholic Schools Week celebrating the strength of family. 

On Sunday, January 26, they will kick off the week with a special, family-led Mass at 4 p.m. Following the Mass, families will enjoy a pizza party and trivia night. Families have to work together to answer the trivia questions, which will include categories such as the 8 habits, academics, music/movie, Blessed Sacrament history, and others. Throughout the week, students will participate in special activities during the school day such as lunches with their parents, dress up days, Winter Olympics, and a talent show. Blessed Sacrament will close Catholic Schools Week with a family-friendly movie night on Friday evening. Students can wear their pajamas and bring sleeping bags and pillows to the school gym where popcorn is served and families watch a movie together.

 

Catholic Schools Week is a time for not only students, teachers, and staff to celebrate, but also their families. The strength of the families working and celebrating together will be visible during Catholic Schools Week at Blessed Sacrament Catholic School this year.
