What: 5th Annual Stuff the Bus Diaper Drive Sponsored by BETA

When: All of Lent

Where: We will collect diapers (sizes 4, 5, 6 are most needed) in carline, bins located in the entrance to the school, preschool, RE office and the Church entrances.

AND: We will collect change/cash each week in our Fasting Friday’s baby bottles in each classroom. The grade who collects the most money during Lent will be awarded a prize. This is a GREAT way to incorporate Almsgiving into your young kids Lenten journey! Our first collection is this THURSDAY MARCH 7!

Why: STM Catholic School has collected over 220,000 diapers for needy families over the past 4 years during our diaper drive! Please help us achieve our goal of 50,000 this year!



We will continue our discussion of the Sacraments of Initiation.  Students will be working on the sacrament of Holy Eucharist this week!  The quiz on the Sacrament of Confirmation was taken today as an open book/open note format.  We will move on to the Sacraments of Healing next.  Students will have a quiz on the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist by the end of the week.



We will wrap up Algebra this week and get started with Geometry – specifically finding the area of triangles.



The vocabulary quiz is still scheduled for Wednesday, March 13th.  We will continue studying the Periodic Table of Elements this week.


Social Studies

This week, students will begin and complete their 3D rendering of their assigned battle.  Presentations will be at the end of this week – probably Thursday and Friday. All maps, insets, and 3D posters will be in the hall for all to see by the end of the week, so stop by and come take a look! The chapter 5, lessons 3-5 test on this material will be on Friday, March 15th.
