1st Grade Book Publishers are In the House!

Since our “class published book” was such a hit last year we decided to do it again this year.  We used George & Martha stories as a starting point.  We listened to many of their adventures and created our own story with them as the characters.  Our imaginations created our wonderful end product.  The children were excited to see their final product as a real book! 

Readathon Begins!

Read-a-thon

The readathon starts today!  We are so excited about focusing on reading for the next few weeks.  We are making reading a rewarding journey for both your child and our school but we need your help.  Please be sure that you have registered your child and follow the instructions in the Read-a-Thon system.  

Start your reading!!!

Catholic Schools Week 2019

Catholic Schools Week 2019 was one for the books! With the kick-off mass celebrated by Bishop Chappetto, along with Student Day, PJ Day, Movie Day and Bingo it was a wonderful week as we celebrated our school and all the teachers & students in it!

 

Kindness through Community Service and Bishop Chappetto’s Visit

The teachers today had lessons and discussions  about courtesy and examples of random kindness.  In the morning our older grades watched the new Movie Wonder – the movie is a great example for kids and adults of the importance of morality, being kind, and showing forgiveness.  The little ones watched Disney’s the Hunchback of Notre Dame.  

 

In the afternoon all classes were honored to attend mass celebrated by the Most Reverend Bishop Raymond Chappetto, what a beautiful way to end the day.
