Pajama Day!

I can't think of anything better than wearing pajamas to school!  Unless, of course, you're at home wearing your pajamas!  We had a fun day today.  We listened to Carl Olson speak to us about being the best we can be and making good choices.  He was great.  He did a lot of magic tricks for us.  Here are some pictures from our day.  Enjoy the nice weather!

Badger Day!

What a great kick off for Catholic Schools Week!  This morning we had two athletes from the UW here to talk to us about the importance of education and making good choices.  Badger football player, Shelton Johnson, spoke to us about growing up playing football and his mom being a teacher.  Badger basketball player, Mike Bruesewitz, talked to us about balancing school work and athletics.  We had lots of fun.  What a great way to start our week.  Here are some pictures from this morning.  Have a great day!

Report Card Day!

Wow!  Can you believe that today your child is coming home with their second quarter report card?  That means that we are halfway through our school year already!  We have had a very busy week here at school.  In English, we have been writing narrative descriptions of our bedrooms.  We used the 4-Square method to organize our thoughts and then wrote a rough draft.  Next week we will be publishing our final copy!  In Science, we started our unit on motion.  This will lead to our simple machines unit.  Next week is Catholic Schools Week.  There are lots of fun days planned next week.  Have a wonderful weekend.

What a treat!  Rosie was out and about this afternoon so we were all able to pet her today!  Everyone commented how soft her fur is.  As Rosie gets more and more comfortable, I think we will see her out more often.  The kids really seem to enjoy her, and I think Rosie likes it too!  Here are a couple of pictures of Rosie and her new cage.  Enjoy!

I don't know about any of you, but I want yesterday's weather back!  This snow is for the birds!  Winter has certainly descended upon us, and apparently Mother Nature has remembered that we are in the middle of January.  With all of this wet stuff, please make sure that students are dressed appropriately for the weather.  Snow pants and boots are a must.  Enjoy the white stuff, and have a wonderful weekend!

Back At It!

Here we are back into the swing of school.  Can you believe that 2nd quarter will be over next week?  I sure can't.  Please make sure that students are caught up on all their work/corrections before Thursday, January 19th.  In english, we are beginning our unit in writing.  The students are supposed to bring an object or picture to school tomorrow to write about.  In social studies, students are learning the state capitals and are anxiously awaiting when they can take the test!  That's all for now.  Happy Monday!

Capitol Field Trip

Yesterday was our field trip to the state Capitol.  We had a lot of fun exploring the Capitol and learning all the interesting facts about the Capitol.  For example, do you know where the first state Capitol was located?  We even got to meet Assemblyman Hebl!  He told us he attended Sacred Hearts when he went to school!  He also told us about working hard to be successful.  We had a wonderful trip!  Have a wonderful weekend!  Here's some pics from yesterday's trip.
