Looking Back

5th-6th gr CSW Camping IMG_20170131_104117 IMG_20170131_104624-1 IMG_20170131_104652 IMG_20170131_104739 IMG_20170131_110639Last week, we celebrated Catholic Schools’ Week and had such fun!  Looking back at our fun-filled, busy week, our camping day had to be “funnest” day we had with the “camp fires” and s’mores.  Here is Mrs. Stepp’s class and an explanation of what they did. As part of our Catholic School’s Week festivities, 5th and 6th grades spent their Language Arts block outside around a “campfire.” We ate s’mores, told ghost stories, sang a song, and read about monster goldfish and wild boars as invasive species. As you can see, we all enjoyed our “camping trip.”

Dude, You Hear What I Hear?

dude-you-hear-what-i-hear-imageTONIGHT is our Christmas Play!  We are so excited and looking forward to helping others understand that Christmas isn’t about a guy named Felix Navidad, how grandma got run over by a reindeer or even the 40% shopping sales at Mondo-Mart, but about a baby named Jesus who came to save us ALL!
So, come join us tonight in the gymnasium at 6:30 P.M. and hear the TRUE meaning of Christmas! (The gym doors will open at 6:00 P.M.)

Recycling

recycle-collageWe are currently in our Fall Can Drive through Monday.  You can bring your cans from 7:00 A.M.-8:00 A.M. each morning.  The students are competing to see who can bring the most cans and it’s been quite impressive to see the amount of cans brought by the students.  We’ve seen truck beds full of bagged cans!
Next Tuesday, we will host our 1st Glass Recycling for one day only!  This will be from 7:00 A.M.-8:00 A.M.  The glass must be presorted in closed cardboard boxes with only one color glass (GREEN, BROWN, or CLEAR) in each box.  Each box should be marked GLASS and the color (green, brown, or clear) indicated.

Poinsettia Sale Begins

poinsettiaIt’s that time again – Poinsettia Time!  SHS is selling poinsettias just in time for the holidays.  The poinsettias are absolutely beautiful and provide holiday cheer where ever they are placed, whether it is a business or a home.  The orders and money are due on Friday, December 2.  They will be delivered to the school on the following Monday, December 5.

Penny Drive-Thursday

Penny Drive-Thursday CollageOur halls were very lively today as the students placed their monies in designated buckets.  You can see them in the halls trying to come up strategies to put them in the best place for tomorrow’s final Penny Drive.  Kindergarten received the most pennies today, but they were “bombed” the most and are only in 3rd place!  Today’s winner was the 1st and 2nd grade classroom AGAIN!  Those nickels, dimes, quarters, and bills sure do make a big difference!
Who’s going to win the Penny Drive tomorrow?  Will the 1st and 2nd grade classroom be able onto hold their winning streak or will another classroom sneak up and win?  These and many more questions will be answered tomorrow as we conclude our awesome Penny Drive!!!

Penny Drive-Tuesday

Penny Drive-Tuesday CollageToday’s Penny Drive was very exciting!  The students walked back and forth between the buckets to drop in their money hoping it would put their class in a good place for Friday.  Strategies are definitely in play.  Today’s winner is the Kindergarten class!  As you can imagine, they were definitely excited about their win today.  Who will win tomorrow???

Penny Drive-Monday

Penny Drive-Monday CollageOur Penny Drive started with a blast this morning!  Some buckets had very little while others were full!  The students were already talking strategy this morning to give their class the upper hand so they will win the week’s competition.  Today’s winner was the 5th & 6th grade classroom.  Will they be able to hold onto the lead?
This fundraiser is sponsored by the PTO and we have the best!  In the past, the PTO has been able to purchase desks and chairs for the 1st – 4th grade classrooms, reading books for the kindergarten – 4th grade classrooms, and white boards for all classrooms.
Remember, pennies count toward a classroom; nickels, dimes, quarters, and all bills count against a classroom.
