Off and on, we've been keeping up with current events and of course this means the upcoming presidential election. We are planning for our own SJS election on 11/3 along with the rest of the country. Registration is next week for all students K-8, faculty, and staff. Then, we vote on 11/3 and our class will be responsible for gathering the results. (With COVID precautions of course.) Our class has been working very hard on these preparations this week. Please ask them about it!
We also completed our Safe Environment lessons this week. Discussions of personal safety followed by saints who help us understand the dignity and care for human life followed. We studied Our Lady of Guadalupe and St. Gianna. Students completed activities in their journals for these lessons.
Thank you so much for the little plastic cup donations. We had enough come in that I could do multiples of each experiment which was better than one set everyone took turns checking out. We were working with the interaction between various solids and liquids and observing the reactions or lack thereof for each. They may ask you to recreate one particularly exciting one at home. :)
Please see the new photos below of our Halloween/Egypt craft we worked on this week and some of our election posters.
