Father Daughter Dance

Grandfathers, uncles and family friends are also welcome to escort our young ladies. Volunteers are needed to help with set up (1:00 to 4:00 p.m.) and tear down (9:15 to 10:00 p.m.)Please contact Lynne Clark if you are able to help. 
Technology Enhances Lessons
First grade students have been studying the weather.  Mrs. Schwalk's class is working in groups to create a Google Slides presentation to share their research of different "extreme" weather systems such as hurricanes, blizzards, and tornadoes, with the rest of the class. Using Google Slides allows the students to use higher level thinking skills including analysis, evaluation and creation.  
Hands-on Learning 
Students in 2nd grade explored 2 and 3 dimensional shapes using toothpicks and marshmallows. As they built a variety of geometric shapes, the students were able to identify vertices, angles, and flat surfaces. 
Amazing Anthropods
Seventh grade Life Science students are learning about arthropods. This covers a multitude of creatures including insects and spiders. Crustaceans are a type of arthropods that include lobsters, crayfish, shrimp and crabs.  Their study of crustaceans included a dissection of a crayfish, so the students could observe firsthand the characteristics that crustaceans share. 
Presentation Practice Builds Confidence
Students in Mrs. Sheldon's 8th grade Language Arts class are exploring how to deliver an effective presentation. This week, they have been summarizing events from a Holocaust website and contributing noteworthy events to a historical timeline in the classroom. These events will be used as talking points in presentations they will deliver about Holocaust narratives they read during their Literature Circles.
Resources for Parents
The Christ School team understands the importance of being a resource for our community. Here are two resources that may be of interest. The first article  provides suggestions on ways to teach your children to be problem-solvers. The second article provides insight on praise vs. encouragement. We hope that you find the information in these articles useful.
