The World Through My Eyes

Today, third and fourth took a look at different theories about the continents’ formations.  Both classes have discussed in our religion classes the creation of earth by God.  We have talked about how God  designed the earth still remains a mystery, but there are a multitude of theories.  We watched the Pangaea Theory.  Following the video and discussion, the students formed groups to design the seven continents through their eyes.  We will continue to work on this project next week.

The third and fourth grade classes discussed the impact of the floods in Baton Rouge today.  We had short little geography lesson then we listened to what God calls us to do for those in need.  The students brainstormed ideas of how they could help other students in Baton Rouge.  We collected school supplies and wrote encouraging letters to students in Baton Rouge.  If you would like to contribute, please feel free to donate school supplies that will be mailed to the Catholic Schools in Baton Rouge!

Spanish Classes Have Begun!

Spanish classes began this week!

On Wednesday, each middle school class met to go over expectations and to receive textbooks and workbooks.  Make sure to go over the class syllabus and textbook with your student and sign and return the acknowledgment form on Monday, 8/15.  Middle school students will receive their first vocabulary lists on Monday 8/15, and will have their first vocabulary quiz on Wednesday, 8/24.

On Friday, all of the elementary classes met for the first time.  It was an opportunity to introduce/review classroom routines.  Check on AscendSMS each week to find out what the topics and activities were for that class period.

I look forward to working with your students this year!  Please call or email if you have any questions.
