(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Those of the Catholic Faith are celebrating National Catholic Schools Week.

Students gathered at Bishop LeBlond Wednesday morning for an all-school mass that included St. Joseph's three Catholic Elementary Schools as well as St. Gregory's in Maryville and Bishop Hogan in Chillicothe.

School's leadership are hopeful for the future of catholic schools. They say that with potential changes in a school voucher system at the federal level along with other policy changes can make the private schools more affordable.

"The new tax plan that allows for college savings accounts to be used to pay for elementary and high school for private schools and catholic schools. Parents can get a credit on their state taxes. That's always an incentive," LeBlond principal Jeff Sullivan said.

More hot and humid weather on the way for today with highs back in the upper 90s with some areas reaching triple digits. Use caution when spending time outside because heat index values will once again be in the triple digits for many. A cold front will start to approach our area tonight and stall to our north giving us a few chances for showers and thunderstorms overnight, however this activity will not be widespread. Temperatures will still be above average this weekend with highs in the 90s. A few lingering rain chances will continue this weekend, but much of the weekend will be dry. The cold front will move through the area early next week giving us some much cooler temperatures. High will be back down in the upper 70s and lower 80s to start off next week.
