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.

Greetings, Catholic Schools Week is almost underway!  When I was growing up, sometimes my family and I would attend events at the parish that my parents belonged to when they were young.  In the parish hall, there was a collection of graduation pictures.  I enjoyed finding the pictures of my parents, my aunts, and my...
