Lower School Science Expo was fantastic!
What a fabulous afternoon of scientific exploration! Yesterday afternoon, our fifth grade students lead their younger counterparts through a wide variety of experiments exploring the various states of matter. There was electricity, dry ice, bubbling and gurgling mixtures, lava lamps, gak making -- all sorts of sticky, gooey, messy fun!

Travel Size Toiletries Drive
The spring service learning project for fourth grade will be putting together hygiene kits for Sacred Heart Community Services.
Can you donate a few items to help them?
There is no need to go shopping, but please grab those shampoos, conditioners, soaps, and lotions if you are staying at a hotel over the Winter Break or small toothpastes and toothbrushes from your dentist. Fourth grade will begin collecting the items the first week of March. Thank you!
