Thank you: Thank all that you do for this school!
SLE Focus: A servant leader of Assumption Catholic School participates reverently in the sacramental life of the Church.
Language Arts: In Language Arts, the eighth graders are working on Latin vocabulary roots and affixes, learning how sentences operate, and they will be writing an essay for the Knights of Columbus essay contest.
Literature: In Literature, students are reading independently and responding in words and art about a book they have been reading. I am reading The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay aloud to them.
Physical Education: Weekly News
Religion: We are learning more about the history of the Catholic Church this year. Our focus as a school is seeing each person as part of the body of Christ as well as caring for God’s creation. Fr. Jeffrey Moore is teaching the class regarding the liturgy.
Science: This week we will be completing lab stations to familiarize students with SI units and the metric system in general. We will (if time) review the scientific method steps.
U.S. History: The eighth graders are working together in teams as they research the civilizations in North America, Europe, and Africa just before the Columbus’ voyages to the Caribbean.
