News from Mrs. Chalmers

News from Spanish...

After learning the Spanish term for the objects in a classroom, the kindergartners have moved on to learning the correct words for the members of their family. The first and second graders are learning the terms for the parts of the body and especially love to sing, “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes” in Spanish (cabeza, hombros, rodillas, dedos). The 3rd graders have continued to add to their comprehensive word list for the items in a classroom and extended family relations. The language studies of the fifth and sixth grade students have centered on foods--especially fruits and vegetables. By year’s end, the students will be able to label approximately 75 foods with the appropriate Spanish term!

News from Band…

 Following their wonderful group and solo pieces at last month’s Christmas program, the fifth and sixth grade Band members continue to learn new rhythms and notes and working together on their group Band music.   It is such a treat to hear them use and develop the gifts God has given them. I am so proud of their hard work…we are a small, but mighty group!

Band and Spanish Events

The fifth and sixth grade band members have been working on some new group songs and have especially enjoyed the Japanese folk song, “Sakura, Sakura.” Our congratulations go out to Evelyn Pichardo (flute) and Stacy Adams (clarinet) who were chosen to be in the Southern Minnesota Middle Level Honor Band, which will be held in Austin, MN on Saturday, March 4th. I know they will be excellent representatives of St. Casimir’s School!

The kindergarten through sixth grade students at St. Casimir’s School have been making great progress in their Spanish lessons. The kindergarten students have learned the Spanish words for family members and are now learning about shapes. The first and second graders are learning the words for parts of the body and clothing, while the third graders are learning all about the calendar. Grades five and six continue to learn the correct terms for foods. I love when they come through the lunch line and name all of the foods in Spanish for me. It is wonderful to see them using their Spanish outside of the classroom!

News from Mrs. Warner

The anticipation of Jesus' birth was present all through the Advent season, but especially in the Religion classes for the students of SCS.  When learning what they can do to prepare their hearts for His arrival, the students learned that there are many “gifts” we can give and receive, not just ones wrapped in a box with a pretty bow under the tree. The second grade students are eagerly awaiting their celebration of the sacrament of First Reconciliation.  Please join us in praying for them as they learn about confession, penance, and absolution.  Our fifth and sixth grade scientists are learning the differences between chemical and physical changes and will be moving onto a unit on energy soon.  The third grade Science students are learning about weather and how to identify and classify types of clouds.   It is good to be back from Christmas break and back in action!  Happy New Year everyone, and may we continue to bring God glory with our gifts and talents!
