Wishing you all Easter Blessings as our Church continues to celebrate the Easter Liturgical Season. Our return from break has been a busy one due largely to the spring musical. It’s always nice to see the efforts that students put forth in the performance. Although, it is still important for students to have an understanding of what it means to balance school activities with academic work. Any work that has been missed as the result of play practice should be submitted as soon as possible. Additional missing work should also be submitted as soon as possible for late credit. Sixth grade parents should refer to the e-mail that was sent earlier this week pertaining to the arrangement made for submitting work.
This past week marked National Ellis Island Family History Day and also Holocaust Remembrance Day. Both events were covered to some degree in Social Studies for all levels. I hope students were able to reflect upon plague of bigotry and hate that the world suffers from and are inspired to work for peace and justice.
In Language Arts, all levels are at various points in Unit 14 which covers prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections. Eighth grade is also participating in a writing contest for the local Knights of Columbus organization.
