Week of 9/23-9/27

CLIMB is off to a fabulous start!  The 8th graders did a wonderful job leading Middle School Orientation on Friday- they collaborated to lead color group cheers, classes, and created a sense of camaraderie and excitement throughout the day.  In addition, a team of tech savvy 8th graders have taken on the task of creating a Monday morning news network. Eagle News Network , ENN for short, had its debut last Monday morning.  The students are writing announcements, prayers, weather reports, and current events- they are building a permanent set- and they are filming and editing the program each week.  ENN news will broadcast across campus every Monday morning.  This has been a vision of Mrs. O’Leary for a number of years and she is excited to see it take off this year.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to the 2019-2020 school year!  We are going to have a fantastic year here in room 32!  We will tackle issues of Social Justice, Human Dignity, Stewardship, Caring for the Poor and Vulnerable, and Empathy!  Additionally the 6th Graders will dive into the Old Testament, 7th Graders will learn more about their call to Missionary Discipleship through the lens of the New Testament, and 8th Graders will delve into the richness of Catholic Traditions through their study of Church History.  It will be an active and engaging year to be sure!

This year my web page will be your primary source for all things 8th Grade related; DC, Graduation, High School Visits, Retreats and CLIMB!

Additionally, I will update my page routinely to let you know what we are up to in our Middle School Religion Classes, upcoming projects, homework, service projects, and field trips.

Please always feel free to email me with any questions or concerns!

I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
