2014 Butterfly Parade

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe PreK3 through third grade students walked to Hansen Park to release butterflies today. Previous to the walk each class participated in several projects.

Mrs. Byrne shares that the Kindergarten children watched the butterflies go from caterpillars to chrysalises to butterflies in the classroom. They read about the butterfly life cycle and colored and sequenced the steps of the cycle. They watched a video about the cycle and learned a song about it. Finally, they painted butterflies and made wands for the parade.

Mrs. McGlynn explains that each class was given a covered cup with a caterpillar and food. They witnessed all the stages of becoming a butterfly. After the chrysalis formed, they were transferred to a hanging habitat. Once they became butterflies, the students fed them with sugar water and orange slices. Each class decorated paper butterflies and taped them to a stick. Everyone learned the learned the butterfly song. Once the butterflies were ready, the students and teachers paraded to Hansen Park and released the butterflies in the butterfly garden. Everyone played games, had snack, and walked through the park.

2014 PreK-4 Skype Call

Our PreK-4 students had an exciting morning. They connected, via Skype, with the PreK-4 class at Saint Mary of the Assumption School in Avilla, Indiana. Each class shared their morning prayer and their end of the day song. The students learned that they had snow, again, in Indiana this morning. The PreK-4 teacher in both school had been planning this conversation since Catholic Schools Week. Due to the interruptions of snow to both schools, we finally arranged for the call.

Please enjoy a short movie with the prayers and songs from the event.

After our Skype call, we look at our school and Saint Mary of the Assumption using Google Earth.

Drama Club News

On Feb. 6, 2014, the SMS Drama Club, featuring students from Grades 5 – 8, presented “A Night at the Wax Museum”.  The play is about a first-year high school history teacher, who takes a few failing students to her aunts’ wax museum, to help get it up and running, and learn some history in the process.  During the course of events, a strange magic spell brings the wax figures to life, which results in the students learning first hand about Blackbeard the pirate, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Henry VIII, and Cleopatra, among others.  During intermission, the newest Drama students, 15 Fourth Graders, presented a demonstration of Theatre Games.  All in attendance enjoyed a riotous evening of theatre.
