What a Lot of Learning!
Greetings from the St. Casimir’s School! We have been so very busy that it’s hard to believe this is our fourth week of school already! In Reading, students in the third through sixth grades have been reading stories and making predictions about what they learned while working toward their Accelerated Reader goals. Furthermore, they are working on writing strong sentences and paragraphs as part of the English and Writing classes. The students in third and fourth grade have been studying about communities in Social Studies and have learned several things about the history of Wells including the fact that Clark Thompson founded Wells and started a railroad here. Did you know that Wells used to have an Opera House, a vinegar and cheese factory and a prisoner of war camp for German soldiers? The students found all of this information to be very interesting. In Science, the students have been studying cells and made edible cells out of Jello and candy to help understand the parts of the cell. We are now working on animal and plant classification.
I am also the Music teacher for all of the grades and am busy preparing for the Veteran’s Day program on November 11th
during which the fifth and sixth graders will play the choir bells, the third and fourth graders will play recorders and the kindergarten through second grade students will sing. We hope you are able to join us for this national day of appreciation!
