Blessing our Rosaries

Yesterday we had the wonderful opportunity to make our very own rosaries.  We had volunteers from the Our Lady Queen of Peace Rosary Group here to teach us how to make rosaries.  It was a great time.  They even showed us some really cool rosaries, one was even made out of bowling balls!  Today Father John came to our classroom to bless our rosaries.  This was a very special prayer service for us.  We now have our very own rosaries made by us!  Enjoy your evening.  Try to stay warm!

The Blessing of the Statue

Today we had the wonderful opportunity to attend a prayer service blessing our new statue of Mary.  The whole school gathered outside, in front of the school (and some in the street!), to watch the blessing of the statue by Monsignor and Father.  Below are a few pictures from the prayer service.  It was very exciting to be a part of this history of the school.  Speaking of history, did you know that yesterday was the 119th birthday of Sacred Hearts School?  Isn't it great to be a part of a school with so much history and tradition!  Enjoy your evening and try to stay dry!

Have a great night!

Praise the Lord, we are done testing!

As of today, we have completed our testing for the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills.  Thank goodness, now we can get back to the fun stuff!  In English, we learned about where our new pen pals were from and started writing a rough draft of the letter we will send to them later this week.  Ask your student to tell you what state our pen pals live in.  In Science, we have begun a unit on sound and light.  Yesterday, we did a "walk-around" to show what we already know about sound and light.  This week's spelling is a bit different than the unit in the book.  This week students were given a word list and a list of activities to complete using their words.  These activities are due on Friday.  Have a wonderful night!  Enjoy the weather while it lasts.

The Month Flew By...

I cannot believe that we are already into our second month of school.  Time has gone by sooo fast, and I apologize for not updating our website as often as I should.  I'll try better this month!  Well, here we are in the first week of October.  With the month of October comes colder weather, wait, strike that.  The weather this week has been beautiful!  I, for one, am LOVING this weather!  Currently, we are immersed in our Iowa Tests.  We will be testing everyday this week and hope to finish up next Monday.  You should also be expecting progress reports to be coming home next Monday.  This will show you to date how your child is doing in school.  Remember you can also access your child's grades through Churchwerks.  If, as always, you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or email.  Enjoy the beautiful weather!
