EACH YEAR DURING LENT, our school community collaborates to make a difference in the world. This year, Sr. Camille Brouillard, IHM visited our school to share the efforts of the IHM sisters in Haiti, the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Haiti was devastated by an earthquake in 2010 and the Haitian people have struggled with a very poor recovery. As a Lenten activity, the fifth graders have chosen to raise funds for Haiti Relief with a “Salty Sale” and Raffle on April 5 during all lunch times at school. Items will be .50¢ or $1. Thank you in advance for your generosity!

STEAM Day – Mrs. Mueller did an outstanding job organizing the first annual STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) Day. Students went room to room with many hands-on science projects. We had two group presentation, the Physics of Flight and the Magic of Science. Both were educational and entertaining. Middle school students also shared their Innovation Projects with their classmates and Fr. Tony. Fr. Tony was amazed at how innovative the projects were and was interested in ordering the Pen Lite from Maria VanDieren. Ms. Rosenbaum did an excellent job coordinating some STEAM Day parody songs. Winners in grade 6-8 included: Anya Keena and Ella Harris (Let’s Take a Science Day), Lily Klein and Ellie Alberts (Alveoli), Lauren St. Andre and Maria VanDieren (Pump that Blood). In grades 3-5 the winners were: Kate Van Norwick and Maia Keena (Biology), Erin Mayette and Mia Palizzi (Eating Healthy), Charlotte Quaine and Ava Dietz (Bones). It was a very successful first STEAM Day!
