Did You Know...?
1st Grade Transportation Projects
This week the First Grade presented their transportation reports. They did an awesome job!  They presented their projects with such knowledge and grace and I am so very proud of them. Their presentations showed how much they have grown in knowledge. In nine short months their reading skills and technology skills have advanced greatly. What a wonderful class of First Graders I have!  ~ Mrs. Korom

1st Grade Collects for Charities 
The First Grade has been very busy all year donating to different charities. The final donation of the year is to the cereal drive. The first grade is donating over 20 boxes of cereal. We have learned so much about helping those in need and we have worked hard to practice our faith by helping those who are less fortunate than we are. 

3rd Grade Publishing Center
The Third Grade finished their Publishing Center experience with a celebration in the library. Mrs. Hennessy read a few of the books to everyone. The children wrote an original story, volunteers helped them to edit their story, then the children illustrated their books. The students received a copy of their book to take home. A second copy of their book stays in the library for the whole school to enjoy. A big thank you goes to Mrs. Perretta, who runs the whole program. The third graders love this experience!

4th Grade Poetry 
Every year the Fourth Grade memorizes and performs a poem for an oral presentation. This year we had a stage with lights and an audience to watch our performances! What an amazing event it was!

4th, 5th & 6th Grade Field Trip
This week 4th, 5th, 6th grades went to the Elmwood Park Zoo for a field trip. Some students had the opportunity to feed giraffes while others got to see what it's like to have birds land on their heads and arms. Here we see a few of the animals that escaped their enclosure and had time to pose for a picture.
