Halloween Parties – One of my favorite St. Hugo traditions is that our eighth-grade students are willing to throw Halloween parties for the other students, instead of having a party of their own. The eighth-grade students did a magnificent job of planning and setting up a Halloween atmosphere for their fellow students. It was a great way to prepare for a fun evening for the entire school.
All Saints Day -The fourth-grade students did an outstanding job dressed up as their favorite saint for the All-Saints Day Mass this past Wednesday. Fr. Tim encouraged the students during his homily to live saintly lives. The next time you visit our main office, you can see information about Fr. Solanus Casey, who is in process of soon becoming a saint. Fr. Tim also asked that all prayers are ended at St. Hugo, by asking St. Hugo to pray for us. All-Saints Day is wonderful day for us to aspire to live a saintlier life
Conferences/Book Fair – We are looking forward to meeting with parents at conferences this Wednesday and Thursday from 4:30-8:00. Please stop by the library and see the Book Fair during your visit. This is a great opportunity to get some early Christmas shopping done and to support our library. All money that is raised will go directly toward new books and materials for the library.

As much as possible, computer teachers must work closely with subject area teachers, so that work in the computer lab complements and supports classroom instruction.

Technology Plan 2015-2018

To reach that objective, students must first be taught the basic skills such as use of the mouse, keyboarding, and file management. The lower grades will have a greater focus on these skills, as well as on the use of educational software for learning and enjoyment. As students reach the upper elementary level, the focus shifts to the mastery of productivity software such as word processors and spreadsheets, using inter-disciplinary projects tied to the content areas. In the upper grades the focus shifts to more advanced projects incorporating Internet research. Finally, a key objective is to provide students with the digital literacy and critical thinking skills required to become “information consumers” who continually evaluate content on the Internet.
