The school year has been very busy! The first of the school year the whole school did either Solar Eclipse T-shirts with fabric paint or a Solar Eclipse Oil Pastel project. Here are some photos of their work! In doing this the students learned about what happens in a solar eclipse as well as the Sun’s Corona which is artistically represented in their work:)
Middle School also explored the concepts of positive and negative space with Charcoal drawings and Complimentary Colors with construction paper designs.
Recently in 5th and 7th grade we studies Cells as the basic unit of life. We used our microscope to look at water samples to find all sorts of life zooming around. Here is a short video of one of our specimens:). A whole world in a drop!
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.
Believing that each child is a gift from God to be cherished, guided, and protected, the mission of St. John Vianney Catholic School is to assist families and the Church in their responsibility of forming educated Christians who lovingly serve God in this life, so as to be with Him forever in the next.
