This week we’re gearing up for Catholic Schools Week!
In kindergarten, the students shared what they did over the weekend during circle time. They also made posters based on our student learning expectations.
Our 1st graders picked new classroom jobs to start off the week and studied spelling words with a little help from the Super Kids.
The 3rd grade students made life-sized figures of famous historical people for our Walk through History evening. They also used an organizer to retell an excerpt from Ramona Quimby age 8 by Beverly Cleary.
In math, our 4th grade teachers used a variety of teaching strategies to help our student math groups with long division. They’re also studying southwest land forms in social studies.
Meanwhile, in 5th grade PE, our falcons are ran a mile around the field. The students are also studying types of prayer, in religion class, by creating a foldable, and they’re busy making a colonial village for social studies.
Our 6th graders are creating city states and making posters for Catholic Schools Week.
For fine arts, the junior high students are collaborating to create a picture based on James Rizzi’s buildings. Our junior high schoolers are each designing a building using construction paper. It’s a work in progress, but Mrs. Pivonka is happy with the results thus far.
Additionally, the 8th grade is working hard on their “stained glass windows” for our Walk through History evening.
Our 5th grade boys basketball team just finished an undefeated season, and Nurse David spent time with the Garden Club this week preparing to plant and maintain the garden within the greenhouse. The students had a discussion about the importance of healthy, nutrition rich food and compared the nutritional value of fresh strawberries to strawberry fruit snacks. They also talked about preserved vs. processed foods and learned to read food labels.
Tune in next week to see all of the exciting things in store for Catholic Schools Week!!
