Last Monday our Junior High students participated in the” Pumpkin Chunkin” contest. All month they worked designing, measuring, planning, painting, and testing their team’s catapults. On Monday, before the entire student body, the teams launched their pumpkins using their catapults. Each team was given two launches. Team Galaxy came in first place with a launch of 22 feet. Congratulations to all the teams for their effort in engineering and design. Congratulations to Mrs. Amber Yeager for teaching our students the principles of physics and engineering in seventh and eighth grades!
This week we will be conducting Parent/Teacher Conferences from 4-8 pm. First quarter conferences are mandated by the state. Parents should meet with their children’s teachers not only to discuss grades and effort, but to form a collaboration between home and school.
Our annual Book Fair will take place in the school library this week. After school hours go until 5 pm. Books enrich the lives of readers in countless ways! Stop in our library to browse or pick up a book or two. Books make great gifts for any occasion. The Book Fair ends on Thursday.
In conjunction with the Book Fair, our librarian, Mrs. Solomon is holding a Bake-Off. Students are encouraged to enter the competition with baked goods that they make themselves. There are various categories in the competition so choose one and join in the fun! All proceed will be used to enhance our school library.
Grades six through eight will be traveling to the Maltz Museum for a special program entitled “Face to Face, “on Monday. Off- site learning enhances our students’ education and broadens their outlooks on life.
On Friday, November 11th St. Mary School will be closed. No classes for students and staff.
Thank you to our veterans past and present! We are so very thankful for your contribution to our country, our well-being, and our freedoms! You very much appreciated by our school community!
Happy Veterans Day!
Don’t forget to reset your clocks – “fall back!”
Joyfully in Christ,
