Why a Catholic Education Matters
Catholic education provides children with a safe and nourishing place to learn and grow. It prepares students academically and socially for a challenging world. Students in Catholic schools are viewed as children of God, and therefore loved.
I choose to work at St. Joseph Regional School to share my knowledge, faith and love of Christ with children. The parents and staff at St. Joseph Regional School make teaching a joy!

Fourth Grade News
Grade 4 ELA
Welcome! I am so happy to be your ELA teacher this year. We begin with a first day of school story “A Bad Case of Stripes” to recall reading skills like cause/effect and theme. The students will also develop a writing piece about what they have a “bad case” of. In ELA the students will be broken up into small reading groups to meet individual reading levels with books like, “Stone Fox” or “Eagle Song”. Students will practice their word skills with weekly spelling and vocabulary lists.
Grade 4 Science
Welcome! We begin 4th grade science with the unit “Earth’s Process in NYS”. Students will create models of rock formations and fossils in rock layers. They will also find evidence of weathering and erosion in NYS. Students will provide evidence to prove whether or not a volcano eruption is possible in NYS. Lastly they will study the impacts of natural Earth’s processes on humans and develop solutions to help in the case of natural disasters.
Grade 5 Science
Welcome back! The first trimester unit in 5th grade is called “Deer Deer Everywhere”. As they study ecosystems they will collect information about the effects of the overpopulation of deer in our local ecosystems. They will discover the interaction of the different components of a deer ecosystem. We will go on a macroinvertebrate hunt and then create a living mini ecosystem called an “ecocolumn”. We will use them to create inferences about the interdependence of organisms in ecosystems.
Grade 6 Science
Welcome back! In the first trimester we will be studying populations and communities in ecosystems. Through modeling and real life examples students will find evidence of the effects of limiting factors in ecosystems on organisms and their populations. They will also develop models to describe the cycling of food energy, carbon and nitrates as it moves through an ecosystem.
