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 have been learning so much in the Science room! The 6th graders have completed their Leaf Collections and are now busy building models of our Digestive and Respiratory Systems. Mr. Landfried was kind enough to donate some organs from a deer he harvested. We were able to see and feel the major arteries and chambers of the heart. We were amazed at how soft and puffy the lungs are. In STREAM we are beginning to build towers to be ready for the TECH WARS at GCC.
The 7th graders have been studying Forces and Energy. We had a contest inspired by the NEED Project. We had to build “houses” out of shoe-boxes. Our goal was to create an insulated home with the lowest budget. We learned a lot about heat insulators and how our own homes might be improved to help with Thermal Energy conservation.
The 8th grade class has completed their Rock Collections and have used Luster, Hardness, Streak, Density and Dichotomous Keys to discover the names of their specimens. We are moving into Soil Science and teams of students will be developing their own experiments to answer the question: Does Wind Speed and Soil Moisture Affect Soil Lost To Wind Erosion.
