Science in Action!!

We are learning about metamorphosis in science and discovered it happening in the schoolyard!! There were so many caterpillars in the tree, no one wanted to stand under it! 

We were able to see 2 stages of the moth life cycle! This is the pupa stage.

This is the larva stage.

They were everywhere!!


The Fabulous Fourth Graders would like to extend a huge thank you to the amazing parents who bought books at the book fair and donated them to our classroom library. We are so excited to get reading!

Week 5!

We are learning about the parts of a flower in science. We worked in partners to separate the male and female structures of a lily. Great job scientists!

Some of our container gardens are really taking off! We have sunflowers, tomatoes and lettuce!

family, and faculty are assembled, we will say the Angelus and our Thanksgiving Lunch
will begin at 11:30.The school will supply the basic meal of Turkey, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy,
and 2 hot vegetable dishes.  As this is an event of sharing, we hope that each class can participate
by adding to our menu with items that will be shared by all. We have a suggestion list for things you
can bring:

Drinks and/or snacks
Lower Elementary (Gr 1-3)

There will be a Book Fair during this day and there is a schedule below for the morning and afternoon

    In honor of our environment and trying to make a positive change, we are requesting that you bring
a container and utensils with you to the Thanksgiving Lunch.  This will significantly reduce the amount
of paper and plastic used and send a positive message about the importance of being environmentally
aware to our students. If you will not be able to bring your container/utensils on that day, you can send
it with your child and it can be kept in the classroom or in the office until lunch.  
Thank you for understanding and contributing to our effort to reduce consumable materials
used for school functions.

in the administration office by Friday, November 17th.  Please make sure to note how many people
will be attending the lunch buffet. Friends and extended family members are welcome.

DISK Book Fair!!

DISK will hold a BOOK FAIR on the 22nd of November 2018. Caves Books Company is giving 15% off
for all the books/items. In connection with this activity, every class has their WISH BOX which
means students wish to have books in their classroom library (books will be kept in their classroom).
We encourage parents to support this activity.  

The Book Fair will start at 8:00 am and run until 3:30 pm. Since we have regular classes that day,
the students can only come during their scheduled time. However, if parents cannot come or stay
after the Thanksgiving lunch you are also welcome to our book fair any time of the day. Here is the
schedule where classes will be visiting the Book Fair:
