Why a Catholic Education Matters
Catholic school students standout in a community and often become leaders. I am a product of Catholic Education and I have always considered one of my defining traits to be "Catholic." Teaching in a Catholic school is a perfect fit for me.

6/7/8 Science News
We are having a "flurry" of activity in the science lab! We have been building model houses and having a contest to find who's house has the lowest percentage heat loss. Students had a budget and had to decide what types of insulation they would purchase and install in their homes. Our winning house had only a 17% heat loss over ten minutes.
The 8th graders are learning about earthquakes and will be having a contest to see who can build the best earthquake safe structure. They will be provided with spaghetti sticks, mini marshmallows and tape. The structure will have a hard boiled egg on top and will need to withstand 10 seconds of shaking without dropping the egg.
We have had many creative projects during our STREAM sessions. We have been making prototypes of our inventions and sent two teams to the X- games at St. Joseph Collegiate!
