Dear Parents,

I hope you've been enjoying the unusually warm weather!  We just completed the 2nd trimester of the year; this year seems to be moving quickly!  Our awards ceremony will be Friday, March 4 at 1:30PM in the Gym.  I hope to see you there!

Each grade at BSCS implements many great activities and events that we can consider "hallmark" activities which the students look forward to and enjoy working on!  Two weeks ago, I outlined the robust activities that take place in the Middle School.  This week I want to take the opportunity to share with you the compilation of activities in the Preschool - 5th Grade classrooms as they are an integral part of each grade and part of the fabric that make our classrooms the rich learning environments that they are!

Preschool:  Academic activities such as storytelling language acquisition, literacy, faith activities, science, math, social studies lessons, field trips (Museum of Nature and Science, Denver Zoo, Downtown Denver Aquarium).

Kindergarten:  Students learn to read and write (write the alphabet and sentences), counting by 1's, 5's, and 10's to 100.  They complete 100 acts of kindness by Easter, they learn Bible stories, memorize the Lord's Prayer, Hail Mary, Guardian Angel and St. Francis of Assisi prayer.

1st Grade:  Students participate and take lead roles in Mass, all school Rosaries, and Stations of the Cross.  They complete a weather project and the 100th Day of School project, they conduct publishing parties to share their writing, engage in various STEM projects such as wind vanes, solar system models, and experiments and go on the annual Pumpkin Patch Field Trip.  They serve the community with the book drive: Reach out & Read.

2nd Grade:  Students prepare for reconciliation and for First Holy Communion, and participate in the choir for Wednesday Mass.  Academic projects are the biography day paper and presentation, solar system project and presentation.  Students also learn to write cursive.

3rd Grade:  Students participate and take lead roles in Mass and the choir for Wednesday Mass, lead Stations of the Cross, and participate in reconciliation.  They create the US states projects, various science projects, book projects, and go on the 4 Mile House Field Trip. Service projects include Quarters for Kids and canned food drive.  They participate as elected officers in Student Council.

4th Grade:  Students participate and take lead roles in Mass, all school Rosaries, and May Crowning and participate in the choir for Wednesday Mass.  Academic activities include the Junior Achievement Finance Park and accompanying classroom lessons, earth science and Colorado history that culminates in a field trip to Rocky Mountain National Park and the Colorado History Museum.  Science activities galore, the physiology lesson culminates in a field trip to the Museum of Nature and Science for the Heart & Lung Dissection Lab.

5th Grade:  Faith activities include participating in the annual Archbishop's Mass and the field trip to the Mother Cabrini Shrine, the students learn to make rosary beads and learn prayers and all of the mysteries, and they lead all school Rosaries and Stations of the Cross.  In academics, the students participate in Junior Achievement Finance Park and accompanying classroom lessons, they engage in a rigorous independent reading program, and creative book projects.  The 5th Grade classes organize the canned food drive and participate in the buddy program.

All of our students are highly engaged, they all excel and achieve their potential.  The Charles A. Dana Center at the University of Texas at Austin and Agile Mind, Inc. say that "The culture of learning has a profound impact on students' academic behaviors.  All educators have experienced the phenomenon of a classroom charged with energy and enthusiasm for learning.  But it can be challenging to replicate that experience every day to create an environment that increases the likelihood that all students will engage and learn."  For us, the culture of learning encompasses academics, faith, and service. It is replicated in all classrooms every day!

God bless you and your children,
For love of me you came to earth;
You gave your life for me.
So every day you give me now I give back happily.
Take all my laughter, all my tears,
Each thought, each work, each deed,
And let them be my all-day prayer
To help all those in need.  Amen.
