Due to the condition of the roof in the Church, we have not been able to celebrate Mass together as a school community. Please say a prayer for this matter to be taken care of as soon as possible.

 I will continue to update grades on line every couple of days. Please take a few minutes to check your child's (children's) progress. It would be beneficial for your child/children to know how to go on line a check their grades and any missing work especially since all the grades now have either a Chrome Book or tablet.

SCIENCE:

Grade 8 - the class has started the review for the chapter test next week.

Grade 7 - the class is working on Section 3 - Preventing Infectious Diseases. They will correct the worksheet for this section on Thursday, February 20th.

Grade 6 - There is still a couple students who have not turned in the final worksheet for the group Science Fair Project or their approval form for their own science fair project. The class is presently working on the chapter review to use as a study guide for the chapter test next week.

THE SCIENCE FAIR WILL BE MONDAY EVENING, MARCH 30, 2020. 

SCIENCE FAIR PROJECTS  - All grades have been given the chance to pick a project and get it approved by me before bringing the approval form home for parent/guardian signature. There are a few students who have yet to complete this part of the project.

All grades have also been given the requirements for the Science Fair Project.

I will be checking in on the students over the next week to hear about their project and how it is, or is not progressing. Students should be writing everything they do for their project in their science journal. This journal is a separate from the notebook they use in science class.

GRADE 8 PARENTS  - Start looking for that special baby picture of your graduate. Students interested in helping with the yearbook should let Mrs. Potvin know. We will start meeting in March. I will need an email address I can send a link to so yearbook members can access the yearbook.  I could also use some pictures from days gone by for the yearbook, especially anything before 6th grade. You can either send in the picture(s) for me to scan or email them to me (mmlorry@cox.net). If you have an iphone, you might be able to airdrop the pictures if we can meet before or after school.
