This month we begin by having fun on our ski trip to New Hampshire at the end of Catholic Schools Week.
Our seventh grade grammar classes continue to work on verbals (participles, gerunds and infinitives), as well as complex sentences with adjective, adverb and noun clauses.
In composition class, we will begin writing book reviews. What is better than hunkering down on a cold winter day and escaping into the magic of a good book?
Lent begins on Valentine’s Day this year. We prepare ourselves to continue our lifelong spiritual journey.It is a time to see through the eyes of faith, and grow in our relationship with God through praying, fasting and giving to others.
I love being at St. Pius. I have been a certified teacher for kindergarten through eighth grade since 1978, and I have really enjoyed my job as a junior high English teacher for over the past twenty years. It’s a privilege to help prepare seventh and eighth graders for high school. My own two sons and two daughters got a wonderful foundation from St. Pius and now my grandson is following in the family tradition. I feel truly blessed.
