Titanic Narratives: Students are writing their final drafts of their Narrative Biography. They have done a great job researching and writing fabulous and suspenseful stories full of historical fiction and fictional versions of themselves! Come read them in the hallways, as everyone’s is unique. We will also work on a couple other Titanic related articles this short week as we wrap up this fun unit.

No Spelling this week!


Bushels of blue berries, fields of corn, self pollinating we will find out some interesting facts this week about what is important in everyone’s state. If you travel this next week ask the question on how big is an acre of land or how many acres do you think a state has planted?

What is a Holy Moment? I have been very impressed with these daily Lenten videos from FORMED.

This is something that I will ask myself and my students everyday?

Additionally, all the intermediate classes are saying the rosary every Friday.

Thank you for your help in getting students here early to preform their acts of kindness the crossing guards really appreciate it.

As a part of our Lenten journey, we are listening daily to Dynamic Catholic, interesting each day thus far has talked about happiness. Kind of a curious take on Lent
