SHILLINGTON, Pa. -

Catholic school students are "letting their hair down" a bit this week, or in this case, covering up their hair with some wacky headgear.

It's Catholic Schools Week once again. This year's theme is "Catholic schools raise the standards."

Schools everywhere are celebrating with masses, open houses and fun activities.

Students at the John Paul II Center for Special Learning in Shillington were encouraged to wear "crazy hats" or mismatched clothes.
