October

Welcome to October! Here is short preview of what to expect in Religion class this month.

8th Grade

8th grade will be involved in a wide variety of leadership roles this month acting as Empowered Disciples.

  • Our school counselor will lead the 8th graders in planning an implementing a school-wide UNITY DAY
  • Students will plan, create, and put on a Halloween Carnival for Preschool-4th graders. (more info to come on this)

Other learning Outcomes will include the following concepts: God is a Trinity of Persons in an eternal exchange of love. God loves the Son, the Son reciprocates that love, and the Holy Spirit is the Love between God and the Son; We are Ade in the image of God, meaning that we are made for communion with God an each other; Being made in the image of God also means that we have unalienable dignity as a persons that no other creature has.

7th Grade

7th graders will begin their Missionary Discipleship with a service immersion project at Christ Our Hope Church entering into an encounter with people who are most in need. Research Link

The students will dig into the essential question of Who is My Neighbor? through reflection, discussion, and service. They will begin o identify those who are on the margins.

At the end of the month they will spend a day at St Vincent de Paul serving those who are in need and learning about the work of the people at the food bank.

They will lead a project with the school collecting used Halloween costumes for those in need.

6th Grade

Learning Outcomes will include the following concepts: God reveals himself to us through Sacred Scripture; Jesus is the Word of God, and we encounter Him in Scripture; Sacred Scripture is the written record of God’s revelation of Himself; The Church venerates the Word of God as she venerates the Body of Christ.

We will be discussing how to identify emotions using  the movie Inside Out

 

 

Welcome Back

 I am excited for the school year. Our Theme for the year is:

“Rejoice in the Lord Always – Live in Harmony with One Another”

 

PLANNING AHEAD

7th and 8th grade students are fortunate to serve a day at the Georgetown St Vincent de Paul Food Bank. I am in need of a least one parent to spend the day with us. We hope for drivers to help bring us back to school at the end of the day. I will send out a sign up genius with details. Thanks in advance.
