Congratulations to all Science Olympiad members, coaches Ann Stevens and Lorrie Steele, and to all of our mentors and parent volunteers!

Poetry Cafe

Our 7th grade students have been studying poetry and, after learning from the masters, created their own works of literary art. They then hosted a poetry café in the media center to share their poems with other classes. The following was written by Catherine:

Three Foot World

I can't control the grade on my test, or the way people think about me

It's not in my three foot world

I can't control what happens in the world or how the world views me

It's not in my three foot world

I can control how I view the world and can make sure that I am making myself into what I want people to think of me

Three feet forwards

Three feet backwards

Three feet to the side

That's what is in my control

Ordinary Time

Ordinary time is that time in the church year which is outside the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter. Ordinary time takes us through the life of Jesus. We see how He spread the message of God and called his disciples. It is a time for us to grow closer to God by living a life which reflects the beliefs Jesus taught.
