Homework Policy

Throughout the course of the junior high experience, students will study the stories of the Old Testament; learn about the life of Jesus in the Gospels, and  prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation.  In class, students routinely pray the Rosary and learn about the lives of the saints.  Students have the opportunity to attend retreats, complete service experiences, and take an active role in preparing all school masses.  The junior high religion curriculum ensures that all students are challenged academically, while at the same time, developing spiritually. 

Since most religion assignments are completed within class time, late and missing work should not really be an issue. However, if students do not submit work by the time and date it is expected, students will receive a warning and chance to submit the assignment. Should students choose not to, the assignment will be recorded as missing and grade of 0 will be earned.

While it’s easy to explain...

Mr. Nowakowski Week of 08/31-09/04

“It’s always something!” That saying reminds me of the late, great Gilda Radner yelling it on Saturday Night Live.  She also used that saying as the title of her autobiography.  Given the challenges and tragic circumstances that she experienced throughout her life, it proved to be a fitting title.  “It’s always something!” could also describe...

Mr. Nowakowski – Week of 08/24-08/28

“It just got to be too hard.” “It’s supposed to be hard.  If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it.  The hard is what makes it great…” You may remember this exchange between Dotty Hinson (Geena Davis) and Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks) in the film, A League of Their Own.  While they were referring to...
