LOWELL — As week 4 of remote learning continued for Lowell Catholic students, a Virtual Spirit Week brought a sense of fun to a week of prayer and remembrance for those affected by both closures and frontline work.

“Our Virtual Spirit Week themes were carefully chosen to ensure that students would have easy access to items needed to participate,” Head of school Maryellen DeMarco said. “This week is meant to add a bit of enjoyment to the students and teachers as they diligently continue their virtual learning.”

On Monday, students, who have been attending classes daily, were rewarded by taking it easy and enjoying the comfort of Pajama Day.

On Tuesday, students remembered service members and small businesses affected by the closures with Crazy Hat/Hair Day.

On Wednesday, the theme of thanking superheroes in the community came with more masks and fewer capes as students shared photos in first-responder gear.

Thursday was Sports Day, to remember the student-athletes and favorite New England sports teams whose seasons were cut short this year.
