Welcome Back Mrs. Bozek and Mrs. Rowland!
We missed you both!

All eyes and minds were focused on the sky and beyond as the Philadelphia Museum of Science came to St.Thomas School. Our students learned about our celestial environment. "Eye to Sky" for grades k-8 gave the children the opportunity to discover the wonders of astronomy, stars, planets, light and the solar system!
Our pre-schoolers were engaged in the aspects of structures and buildings as
 "Build It Up!" came to life through the story of The Three Little Pigs from the wolf's perspective!





Sixth graders created, edited and produced their own movies during their Media Enrichment class! Bravo students for a job well done! Thank you Ms. Jung!
