Our short week was nevertheless full of hard work and meaningful tradition.
The kindergartners explored magnets and polarity in six science centers. They also used white boards to create the four math sentences associated with the numbers 2, 4, and 6.
Our fourth grade students visited the Pueblo Grande Museum in Phoenix, whose mission is encouraging the public “to understand and appreciate how archaeology, history, and culture studies can enrich our lives and further our understanding of our shared history and heritage.”
The students had a great day studying the Hohokam culture and enjoyed creating their own petroglyph art piece. They also learned what homes were like thousands of years ago. We’d like to thank those that participate in the FFT program, which funds learning experiences like this one.
Last week, our 5th graders presented the Stations of the Cross, and our community had our annual parish festival. We’d like to thank all who attended, volunteered, and sponsored the event.
And finally, our school marked Holy Week with our annual Trek Through the Desert. Many students pitched in to help, including our first graders who served as our Red Sea.
The day concluded with the Living Stations of the Cross presentation by the eighth grade students. We wish our entire community a blessed and safe Easter break.
