Everyone seemed to have so much fun and many students and teachers won candy and treats throughout the days. Thanks to PTO for lunch, it was great not having to pack one day!
The Kindergarten went to Mass this week with their buddies and will be there every week with 1st grade and their buddies. 2nd grade will be at Mass weekly as well, preparing for their First Holy Communion.

A Message from Ms. B:

Something we noticed in the upper grades: The school issues all students a pair of headphones at the beginning of the year for classroom use. These headphones are often necessary for instruction and technology class, as the Junior High uses various online platforms and programs to enhance whole-class, in-person instruction. Recently we have seen a spike in the number of students without their headphones because they are lost or broken, resulting in an inability to complete an in-class assignment. Beginning next week, students who do not have their headphones will be given an alternate in-class assignment and be expected to complete the original assignment at home. Please check with your student to be sure he/she has this essential supply. If not, earbuds can often be found at the Dollar Store, the school has headphones available for purchase ($1), or students can bring in personal headphones or earbuds from home. Thank you for your continued support and attention to this matter.

This being Catholic Schools’ Week, it is a time to celebrate our privilege of learning about God in a Catholic school.  We have activities and dress code changes, celebrating a special group in our Catholic school, each day.  Be sure to read the pink Catholic Schools’ Week paper sent home on Friday.

Who dey!

A Message from Ms. B:

GRIT: Guts, Resilience, Initiative, Tenacity.

This weekend midterms are coming home as a way to encourage dialogue with your student(s) about their grades and how to best improve them. It is our hope that we have very little to send home in this regard and that the majority of our students are completing their assignments, studying for their tests, and asking for help from the teacher when they are confused or do not understand a concept. We also expect our students to work diligently in class and behave appropriately (not talking out of turn, listening to each other). Some of our students struggle and we try to help them as best we can, providing auxiliary services and/or reviewing work. One thing we have discovered as a staff is some of our students tend to “get down on themselves” rather quickly when they don’t do well the first time on an assignment or test. This is the perfect time for our students to “mess up” or make a mistake! We are here to help our students get up and dust themselves off and try again. But we can only do so much! We want our students to actively be involved in advocating for themselves.

According to renowned psychologist Angela Duckworth, grit is passion and sustained persistence applied toward long-term achievement, with no particular concern for rewards or recognition along the way. It combines resilience, ambition, and self-control in the pursuit of goals that take months, years, or even decades. Grit is a valuable trait in the classroom, the field, and the neighborhood. All of us working together to help our students develop “grit” prepares them for the high school and beyond.
