Pretzels are traditional Lenten food because they don’t contain any of the ingredients that were forbidden during Lent. In the Middle Ages, pretzels were the food of the poor during Lent; now they’re a popular food. Their shape reminds us of praying arms. In fact, the word pretzel comes from a Latin word meaning folded arms.
Third grade will be incorporating this Lenten practice into our classroom. The students will be making pretzels to sell to students during snack time.
What: Third Grade is selling Pretzels
When: March 15, 2017
How Much: $0.50/pretzel or 3/$1.00
Proceeds: Catholic Charities Refugee Program
For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you took Me in, I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you looked after Me, I was in prison and you visited Me.’…
Just want to give a big shout out to my first graders to BREAK A LEG in tonight’s show!
I know you will be awesome, and I can’t wait to see you perform!
I am so very proud of all of you, and I know the talent God gave you will shine brighter than a spotlight!
With unpredictable weather, recess can be a challenge. SJV students in 1st-4th grade got grooving and moving with GoNoodle!
Austin Peay University joined SJV today for our STEM field day. The upper elementary grades discovered the importance of STEM to run a cookie business. The students had to use their science expertise to explain how objects float in order to engineer a boat to float from the start of the Mississippi River in MN all the way to NOLA to deliver delicious cookies. In small groups, the students used a budget, graph paper, and experience to design and build a boat. Then the students tested out their boats! The winning group’s boat held 47 cookies. Fun was had by all!
