We had a beautiful mass for the Feast of St Joseph this week. We had another wonderful appearance by our Children's Choir. We are proud of their hard work and dedication! Our next school liturgy, April 3, is being planned by our class. We would love to have you attend liturgy with us if you are able.
Our Greek Gods & Goddess Projects came in this week. The students have expressed how much they LOVED this project. They are loving learning about the Greek culture, traditions, and of course Greek Mythology. Everyone had a chance to share their findings and they were most amused to find out who was "related to who" when sharing their family trees. The projects are displayed in the classroom on our bookshelf and students love to grab them to read about others, just as they would any other chapter book! There enthusiasm is wonderful!
Mrs. Kilkelly came in this week to talk to us about the Spiritual Adoption Program. Our Spiritually adopted babies are 12-16 weeks old now and she told the children about the developments in the womb of a child at this stage. Their favorite part was actually seeing and getting to hold a anatomically correct size/weight of these small babies. So many "aws!" from the crowd!
Please remember that Monday, Tuesday, and Friday next week we will be testing with the COGATs. I prescribe plenty of rest and a healthy breakfast to get us off to a good start. We'll be very light with written HW, mostly just studying/reviewing through the week.
