Why a Catholic Education Matters
After spending the majority of my career in the public school system, it is refreshing to be in an environment where spiritually is not only permitted, but encouraged. The inclusion of the spiritual piece in each child's education helps to form a well rounded experience for all those involved, students, families and teachers.

Fifth Grade News
The 5th grade will be moving on this year by beginning our nonfiction unit in ELA. We are going to read a book about tropical rainforests by Meg Lowman, The Most Beautiful Roof in the World. The fifth graders will explore the plants and animals found in these areas of the world as well as the interactions and adaptations of this awesome ecosystem.
We also have an exciting opportunity coming up in 5th grade math. We are going to pilot a new interactive version of Eureka Math 2. We will be studying multiplication and division of fractions using this new presentation style.
A note from Mrs. Laska, our religion teacher: I am so excited to be teaching Religion this year to our second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth graders. My main goal as a Catechist is to encourage students to live their faith and become active members of the Catholic Church.
Our fourth, fifth, and sixth graders will be preparing to partake in our school liturgies for the first part of the school year. Our fourth grade will be studying ways in which God reveals himself to us through his son Jesus, the Scriptures, and His Holy Church. Fifth grade will be focusing on how we are called to worship God. In our first unit of study we will be learning about the Sacraments of Initiation, which include Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. Finally, sixth grade will be learning about how God reveals his plan of love. This unit will focus on the importance of Scripture, Creation, and Sacred Tradition.
All classes will spend time learning about the Saints and Holy Days throughout the year. I am looking forward to a great school year full of faith with the students.
