St. Stanislaus STAR

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK
From drumline to magician, students at St. Stanislaus School have been enjoying Catholic Schools Week. The teachers and staff are appreciative of the kindness shared on Monday as all enjoyed the special luncheon. Today we celebrated our nation by having a Patriotic Rosary. Tomorrow we will focus on the gift of vocations. Friday is Family Fund Day and I know many of you will join us then. Saturday we close Catholic Schools Week with mass at 5:30 and Spaghetti Dinner afterwards. Thank you for celebrating with us this year. All these activities help us appreciate the gift of a Catholic School right here in Wardsville. Thank you for your support and your confidence in the work we share of bringing Jesus and children together.
Lessons from the Classroom
A new feature to the STAR will be this section where lessons from the classroom are shared. It is my hope that parents will begin to see the many wonderful lessons and activities that go on at St. Stanislaus School.
Adjective Scavenger Hunt
In Mrs. Luebbering’s third grade class students are learning about adjectives in English this week. Students learned about adjectives being descriptive words. To reinforce this understanding, students were sent on a scavenger hunt to match adjectives with a noun. Students were paired and then given an adjective such as “brave”, “cheerful”, “smart” etc. on a small card. Their job was to find a person who fit the adjective. Using the camera on the classroom iPad, students associated a person with the adjective and photographed the association. Mrs. Heberlie was associated with “brave” and “smart”. Allison uses "cheerful" to describe Mrs. Pleus. What a fun learning experience this was for the students!
