February activities began with Catholic Schools' Week. There was a door-decorating contest, and a visit from the Yale Baseball Team. Children viewed the film, "Lillies of the Field." We also had a Sports Day when the students dressed in outfits representing their favorite sports teams. They also designed a stained glass window. Special Persons Luncheon is a yearly tradition that is fun for both the children and their guests. Friday, February 1st, was a very special day, with Science experiments for each grade, done in our Science Lab under the supervision of Ms. Ague.
In Reading, the children are completing their first anthology, and following the ongoing adventures of the "Superkids." In Mathematics, the children learned to tell time in 5 minute intervals, and practiced word problems. We also reviewed counting by 5's and concepts of quantity. Now, the children are doing two-digit addition with regrouping, and will begin 3 digit addition next.
In Religion, the children are beginning to learn about their souls, sin, and getting grace.They are also practicing a new prayer, "The Act of Contrition" every day.
We will be having a Valentine Show for our parents on February 14th in the church hall at 11:00 AM. Please bring lunch for your child and yourself. Hope to see you then!
