“First and second grade students have been learning about biographies the past month. To complete their biography unit, students were asked to complete a project on a famous person. Students had the choice of how they completed their project and then presented their projects to the class. To celebrate the completion of their projects, students and their projects were displayed similar to a wax museum in the main hallway. Students and teachers walked around asking students about their projects and learned some things while they did!”
Thank you to Miss Keller for sending this information and photos.
Thank you to Mrs. Sarah Rizzo for sending this information and these photos of a special visitor to her fifth and sixth grade classroom last week.
“Mr. Larry Phillips, father of Bryan (8th) and Sydney (5th), came to speak to all of the fifth and sixth grade language arts students about his career as the managing editor of Richland Source. He spent some time with the students discussing his education in journalism and tips of the trade when writing a news article which the students are creating right now in classes. He also brought two of his published books with him about his passion, Ohio High School Football. We appreciated his time and talents being shared with the students.”

On Wednesday morning, Father Austin led the first and second grade students in the Stations of the Cross in the Franciscan Sisters’ chapel on third floor.
The Stations of the Cross are a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ’s last day on Earth as a man. The stations are commonly used as a mini pilgrimage as the individual moves from station to station. At each station, the individual recalls and meditates on a specific event from Christ’s last day. Specific prayers are recited, then the individual moves to the next station until all 14 are complete. The Stations of the Cross are commonly found in churches as a series of 14 small icons or images. They can also appear in church yards arranged along paths. The stations are most commonly prayed during Lent on Wednesdays and Fridays, and especially on Good Friday, the day of the year upon which the events actually occurred. (Catholic online)
