In ELA class, the students are currently reading the nonfiction novel, Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo. The book revolves around a little boy and the main character, Colton Burpo, who recalls his time spent in Heaven while undergoing surgery. Using detail and vivid description, Colton explains images and people that he saw in Heaven. In their own creative way, and as part of an interdisciplinary lesson, including ELA, religion, and art, each student depicted all that Colton witnessed.
In Italian class the 7th grade students worked in groups to create a biography on four different Saints. They listed facts on their birthdays, why they became a saint, when they were canonized, and what they were known for.

Mrs. Leto’s third grade students have been preparing for the Month of the Holy Rosary. They each made their very own, color-coded Rosary Booklets, complete with flip books of the prayers and mysteries. Today, at the Rosary Rally, we put our booklets to good use and followed along as Grades 2-8 gathered to pray the Rosary together.
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2nd GRADERS ON THEIR FIRST HOLY COMMUNION
Walk with Jesus as He shows us how very much He loves us.
The Stations of the Cross are a special devotional prayer to help us to recall the tremendous love of Jesus Christ as He suffered and died for our salvation. The 3rd Grader made Grottos and wrote reflections for each of the fourteen stations.
The 6th grade students worked in groups and focused on specific Stations of the Cross; after researching the stations, they created dioramas to represent each appointed station. They also explained the stations and each station’s importance.
