Congratulations to our students in grades 5,6,7 & 8 for attaining Honor Roll status for the first trimester. Their names can be accessed under our Resource file.
We enter the season of Advent with wonder and awe. Our Lord Jesus Christ's birth is upon us and we are in awe of His Presence in our lives. We strive to prepare for His Coming each day of this Advent Season as we interact with each other and live His Gospel message.
What changes will you make in your life to prepare for His Coming? Will the confusion of the materialistic side of this time of year side track you in focusing on the true meaning of the season?
The children are preparing themselves for the Baby Jesus. Each morning reflective readings are shared with the school to set the tone for the day.
I invite you to bring this spirit into your life as we move through these weeks of Advent.
May His light be your light as we celebrate this Advent Season...
What does ketchup, Doritos, hand sanitizer and ethyl alcohol all have in common? They all contain corn ingredients! Our fifth graders explored BioFuels today in an exciting video conference from the Creative Discovery Museum, in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Students created their own "ocean" in a cup and observed how adding carbon dioxide will cause unsafe conditions for all ocean life. Students observed the process of distillation and differentiated between gasoline from a fossil fuel and ethanol from a plant product. Our fifth graders had hands on experiences to help them determine cause and effect relationships between evidence and explanations.
We are now more familiar with forms and transformations of energy in our world.
Thank you Mrs. Cammarota for planning this excellent lesson!
