Our first, second and third graders have been very busy...

Is it really cold enough outside to freeze bubbles?  This was the burning question on the inquisitive minds of our first and second grade St. Casimir’s School students.  Armed with bubble bottles and wands, they stepped outside to discover that it is indeed possible to create beautiful, frozen bubbles!  The first graders are working on sequencing, counting money and function tables in Math, while the second and third graders are learning their multiplication facts, making arrays, grouping and creating tables and charts.  The second grade students are discerning in Religion class the many ways that Jesus provides to find the peace and happiness that he intends everyone to experience.  They are also becoming aware of how sin and disobedience cut us off from that peace.  After learning about the Indians that lived in our state and the hardships the new settlers had to face in their Minnesota History class, the students were challenged to decide what they would have brought on their journey to the new territory as a an original settler.  It was very interesting to see what the priorities would be if they were only allowed to bring so many things--would it be an ax or a plow, one cow or two oxen, a cook stove or a piano, a window or a feather mattress, two chickens or a three month’s supply of food!  As you can see, this school year has been full of learning and growing.  God has truly blessed all of us here at SCS!  May His presence fill your hearts and homes in 2016 .  God bless all of you from Ms. Raimann and the St. Casimir’s School kids!

SCS Hosts Christmas Program

The students and faculty of St. Casimir’s School invite you to attend their Christmas Program titled Sing with Us the Christmas Story.  The preschool through sixth grade students have been working Advent wonders as they prepare their musical selections to help our community celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.  This holiday event will be held on Monday, December 21st, beginning at 7:00 PM in the school’s gymnasium.  We hope to see you there! 

Greetings from Kindergarten!

The students are very excited about all the new things they have learned including reading approximately 30 sight words and decoding so many more!  With this skill, they are able to read short story booklets.  In Math the students are aquiring a new skill—estimation—through the Estimation Station in the classroom.  Each week the kids discover new items in the station’s large jar, and they make an "educated" guess to determine how many of the item are in the jar.  The jar’s contents are then counted to discover the exact answer and see whose estimation was the closest.  The students will soon begin a big thematic unit using Math, Geography, Social Studies, Science, Art, Reading and Writing when they read “Flat Stanley” which is a story about a boy who gets flattened by a bulletin board and goes on lots of adventures.  After reading the book, the students will make their own flat person (Art) and send him or her to friends or family members.  In purchasing the stamps for the envelopes, Math skills will be used to count money.  The recipients will be asked to take their flat person on lots of adventures and to report them back to the students (Social Studies).  Through this process, the children will learn about the map of the United States and where different states are located (Geography) as well as how weather varies in different parts of the country (Science).  I can't wait to get this unit started in just a few days as the kids will really enjoy this fun project!  As always, we appreciate the gifts that St. Casimir's School provides us, and we love talking about the generous gifts that God gives us when we gather for Religion class.  In one of our recent lessons we discussed the gifts of the five senses and how we could not learn new things without the ability to taste, feel, hear, see and smell.  Our journey through kindergarten is blessed a thousandfold due to being a part of this awesome school!  May God Bless you!

Hello from Mrs. Sonnek!

In the fifth and sixth grade Religion class at SCS, the students created a PowerPoint about themselves through the Theology of the Body curriculum. They are also learning how freedom means responsibility and how their choices reflect their love of God. These lessons tie in well with the sessions about the physical body systems that the students are studying in Health Science. The Year of Mercy has us thinking of things we can do within the school and community, and so the students have decided to serve breakfast to the teachers this week!  In Phy-Ed, we are finishing up with volleyball in all grades, and it has been rewarding to see how much each student has improved in their coordination and strength. The fourth through sixth grade students continue to work hard on their Math skills with everything from improving basic Math facts to problem solving in Algebra.
