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 very busy in the science room!! Sixth graders are inventors.... We are sending three inventions to the Diocesan STREAM convention's Shark Tank. We are hopeful that our inventions will help us bring home the prize to St. Joe's!
The eighth grade class is studying Tectonic Plates and the events that occur when plates slip and slide. We are experimenting with designing structures that can withstand the shaking of earthquakes.
The seventh grade is investigating thermal energy and how we use it to heat our homes, run our automobiles and turn turbines in electric power plants. We are having fun building shoe box models of homes and experimenting with different types of insulation to see which has the lowest percentage heat loss.
The Next-Gen science standards allow us to do even more engineering and experimentation this year. You know we all will love that!
Stay warm and remember thermal energy desires to go from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration ;)
