Why a Catholic Education Matters
Praying to God openly when times call for it is something that I saw my teachers doing and I hope to portray to my scholars that certain times call for prayer. St. Joseph School provides scholars with a quality education that incorporates the love for Jesus into the fields of study. The faith of the scholars begins to flourish and grow when the spiritual aspect of the scholars are watered with Catholic Education. St. Joseph School is a warm, welcoming community which allows scholars to feel comfortable which in turn allows scholars to learn.

Fifth Grade News
The second quarter is off to a great start!
We are taking on the roles of astronomers as we explore the planets and moons in our solar system. After our astronomy unit, we will become chemists as we study matter and different types of bonding.
In Social Studies, we will be studying the Early European Explorers as well as Ancient Civilizations and the Early Americans.
Our math studies will be focused on multiplying and dividing with decimals. Then we will continue our studies with Module 3 which is adding and subtracting fractions. We will be putting our math knowledge to use through a few different mini projects throughout this quarter.
The skills we are learning in ELA will be integrated into various subjects throughout the quarter. We are currently working on researching an active space mission and creating a news report on it which will include developing a script and a PowerPoint. We will also be finishing “Wonder” by R.J. Palacio.
Our study of the sacraments continues in Religion. We are finishing up the Sacrament of Eucharist. As we celebrate Advent, we will be learning about Advent in the classroom. After Advent, we will be moving towards how we celebrate God’s healing love through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
I am eager to see how the students will continue to shine in our classroom by using the gifts God has given them.
