Celebrating Black History Month
Using our TV broadcasting system, our students honored the accomplishments of many famous Black Americans as depicted in this film. James Earl Jones, Michael Jackson, Sojourner Truth, Bessie Colman, and Booker T. Washington-just to name a few- all gave tribute to their personal success story.
Thank you boys and girls and our moderator, Mrs. Conte, for your excellent work!


Grade 5 Videoconference - Virtual Art Station 

Did you know that Titan is Saturn's largest moon?  Today our 5th graders visited the Denver Museum of Nature. Our class took a voyage through our solar system to visit a moon that is the most earth-like world scientists have found so far. We learned about the features found on Titan while creating a scientific illustration.Since Titan is  the home of liquid methane seas,  our  scientific drawing included rivers, lakes, and  clouds. The children had the opportunity to create their own image while learning facts and asking questions about this moon. This was an educational, artistic and fun experience that helped us understand the vast world around us.

This Lenten Season, our students have embraced the theme of "Fast, Pray,Give".

Each morning students will share reflections on the season with their peers. Each child has received a Rice Bowl from the Catholic Relief Services to donate funds to those less fortunate than they are.

Spend time with your child discussing the beauty of this season and the glory of its culmination on Easter Sunday. Share the ways as a family you plan on marking the significance of this time to enrich your spiritual life.

May the Lenten Season bring you closer to your faith,family and friends.

Sincerely,

Christina Teisch

Principal

Congratulations to our students, Jake Lang, grade 6 and Ariana Freire, gr.8 for your excellence in writing on a most important topic. Bravo for your work being published in this global newsletter!

The students took part in a World Food Day Essay writing contest that addressed the question “How Can Healing The Environment Help Stop Hunger?” The students researched various factors that negatively affect our environment and the ability for people to have access to an affordable supply of food. Read more click here
