Dear parents and families,
"O Divine Truth, You give so much strength to the soul which clothes itself with You, that it never falters under the weight of adversity beneath the burden of troubles and temptations, but in every struggle it gains a great victory. I am wretched because I have not followed You, O Eternal Truth; hence I am so weak that in every least tribulation I fall" - St Catherine of Siena.
I am very excited to announce that next year we will be converting two former offices into one state of the art STREAM Lab! STREAM stands for Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, and Math. This will be a dedicated space where teachers and students are able to conduct STREAM activities that will be fun and educational. The picture to the right is a list of supplies that are needed, so if you have any around the house please feel free to donate! In the meantime, we have purchased a new set of STEM activities for K-5th grade. Our teachers are just beginning to explore the options, but your children will be exposed to these activities more and more as the year goes on.
Mr. Muha and the K-5 teachers are now signed up for
. SplashMath is an online math website that gives each student an account. The website has many math lessons and problems to practice. Mr. Muha is working with the teachers to add in parent emails to the student accounts so you are able to see what your child is accomplishing. It is a very promising website for our teachers and students, so be on the lookout for your child doing math and earning coins online! Since SplashMath online goes through 5th grade, Ms. Pugh has been showing the students IXL as well for an online math resource.
We are looking to expand our club options for students in the coming weeks. If you are interested in volunteering to lead the Chess Club (4th-8th), a Running Club for grades 1-3, or have ideas for other clubs, please email Mr. Cinalli at firstname.lastname@example.org.
