Grade 8 art work will be on display at Barnes & Noble on Thursday, May 29th.   

Lent is a time to pray, fast and give alms.  The eighth grade begin each day with some quiet prayer time.  They can pray, read the Bible or read their Religion book.

The sixth grade travel around the Eastern Hemisphere in Social Studies class.  As they learn about other countries and the cultures of the people, the students still have tests, quizzes and projects to keep them busy.  Socrative is an App for our iPads socrative-logo-hires[1]that helps with quizzes.  Teachers can invite the class into a “classroom” to take a quiz or test.  Students login and answer the questions.  Teachers then choose to have a report sent with the results of the quiz/test.
