NEWS & NOTES
Jambo! Each year the 4th grade embarks on an educational journey to explore Africa. They begin by covering the continent as a whole, then delving deeper and focusing on a week long study of each region. They discuss the countries, climate, landforms, historical influences, languages, and cultures.
The past two weeks have offered the St. Michael’s theatrical audiences some wonderful viewing, as Mrs. Johnston’s young actors presented the culmination of their work in drama class.
Second grade parents were introduced to some very special ‘people’ last week during C.A.T.-Children are Teachers. Each student selected a notable person to research. After reading their biographies, the children wrote reports which included facts about their major accomplishments and observations related to our Traits for Success. Each person studied used several Traits for Success in order to achieve their goals.
Earth Week, April 24-27, is an opportunity to focus on protecting the Earth’s resources. During the week of April 24-28, St. Michael’s students will be learning about natural resources and taking action to make a positive difference in our community.
April is Collaboration Month at St. Michael’s and there are many opportunities for students to learn the skills and positive attributes of working well with others.
Every St. Michael’s community member would have been proud this past Wednesday evening to see a group of our sixth graders present their concerns about plastics in the environment to the Newport City Council.
