Well, we have our room all cleaned up and ready to go.  The kids got their yearbooks signed by their classmates, and we are celebrating our 100 points.  It doesn’t get much better… The kids all have awards to bring home from our classroom awards “assembly”.  Please be sure that your child has no library […]

We got a lot done today.  We wrote our letters to our 8th grade selves and sealed them in our envelopes, ready to go out in four years.  We made a book to well wish Father Michael this summer as he leaves us.  Most of the kids got their hands passed out and glued into […]

We had perfect day for our field trip!  Mass was lovely, and we enjoyed our picnic lunch.  Unfortunately, the Grotto is currently under construction, so we weren’t able to walk down and pray, but still, we had a great time. We have started passing out our hands to our classmates for our compliment books.  Many […]

Today, we got almost done with our scientists.  We will finish up tomorrow.  Anyone who didn’t feel like they would finish tomorrow is bringing their work home to work a bit more so that they can get done tomorrow. We also made the covers for our compliment books, and most kids are starting to cut […]

We continued to research our scientists today.  Some kids felt a little behind, and have decided to work at home as well.  We’ll finish up on Friday.  The kids also need to have all of their compliments written for Religion so we can start our hands tomorrow.  Many of them worked in class, but some […]

Our field trip today was wonderful!  The kids really seemed to enjoy themselves, eating and talking with the residents, and then playing.  Many of the residents just simply enjoyed watching the kids play, while others walked around with the kids.  This trip would not have been possible with Angie Skwarcan’s amazing organization skills in putting […]

Tomorrow, we are leaving CKS for Healthwin at 10:30.  If you are walking with us, please be here at that time.  I am going to be a driver.  Part of my MS symptoms include balance and fatigue, and it is kind of far for me.  We are very well staffed for the walk, though, so […]

Tomorrow, we will have an open book test in Science. Today, we went over the content in the lessons, as well as the headings and subheadings.  The kids will be able to use their books and notes, and will be able to bring the tests home to check over with you.  My hope is that […]

Well, we managed to get outside for AM recess today.  It was chilly, so please be sure that you are still sending a jacket with your child. We gathered as a school to pray the Rosary today.  This is always a beautiful experience. As we are getting ready to wrap up our year, we are […]
