Since we were “blessed” with a week of rain, snow, and sleet, Mrs. Prinzivalli’s advisory had to get creative with their recess time. They played a rousing game of hangman to pass the time before heading outside once the skies cleared.
Seventh grade's new unit on cell biology and diseases got off to a lively start. They dramatically interpreted historic discoveries in the world of cells and microbes through skits. Then, they put their own investigative caps on to look at cells from a variety of organisms. They really enjoyed using the high-quality microscopes that Ms. Scheiber discovered in the depths of St. Matthias' basement, just in time to look at onion, spinach, amoeba, and their own cheek cells under high power!
*To get to the other SLIDE!!!!
The eighth grade students are making progress on their mosaics for the class totem pole. Each student will create a segment of the totem pole with an individualized design. Mr. O plans to put the finished product in the school garden, where it will remain for years to come as a legacy of the Class of 2016.
On Friday, the eighth grade students led the St. Matthias community in our first Mass after the Easter holiday. Many thanks to Fr. Larry for helping us prepare the petitions, understand the readings, and discover how we can incorporate truth and integrity better into our lives.
Mrs. Prinzivalli surprised the students in all grade levels with a special word search this week. Check out the photos below to see her big surprise!
-Aspire testing begins next week. Each morning, the junior high classes will sit for their exams, so it is important that students and parents are mindful of tardiness. Please have students bring a water bottle and a healthy snack for breaks!
-Be sure to check out our volleyball all-stars at their games next week. The SMAA updates the schedule frequently!
