Capturing The Moment
“Circle of Life” – Eighth Grade is rehearsing for “The Lion King,” our spring musical. We’ll have at least three performances:
Tuesday, May 16 at 1:45 p.m. (Student Matinee)
Tuesday, May 16 at 7 p.m. (evening show for community, 6:30 curtain call)
Wednesday, May 17 at 10 a.m. (simplified performance at Providence Mt. St. Vincent)
Eighth graders are in the midst of presenting their Juan Diego Project Research Seminars. It’s a unique opportunity for students to learn from each other. Each student designs a seminar where they present attributed data and analysis, visuals, graphs and a research thesis based on their JDP. They also lead class discussions and activities during their seminar which commonly lasts anywhere from 25-40 minutes. It’s a tall order, but OLG kids can do it!
Because sometimes a rainbow just shows up outside my classroom window.
We got our robes a little early for our performance prayer of the Mary Dance during the Winter Concert. Some students wanted to start a gospel choir. Don’t think we won’t do it!
Merry Christmas! and Go Hawks!!!
Happy Halloween! Please excuse the dabbing… boooooo!
My friend, Raphael, visited the 7th grade class to talk about his own start up business, while giving the class some pointers about crafting mission statements for our Create-Your-Own Business projects.
On retreat in the first great storm of the school year. Community building with the Class of 2017.
The 8th grade visited Providence Mount St. Vincent home for Long Term Care and Assisted Living, where we will fulfill our class service project, providing recreational therapy to Mount residents. Today, we had our orientation when students practiced wheelchair protocol. (10/4/16)
We began our school year with an inter-grade level meeting to set up our middle school unity. We discussed how we can live out our school-wide learning expectations on colorful posters. Fun way to start! (9/2/2016)
