The school theme for our new school year is "Journeying With Pope Francis!" The Pope has the eyes and ears of the whole world and this includes my students. They have been watching and listening to him. He is easy to quote and follow. As a faculty we decided that each month we would select one of Pope Francis' quotes and do an action plan with the students with the quote. August we journeyed with him in taking care of the environment as he encouraged us to " be one with the environment."
Tuesday, August 20th was Environment Day at our school. In the afternoon the whole school was outside picking up trash on different parts of the playgrounds, parking lot, church courtyard, prayer garden and the grounds in front of the school and church. The students loved it.
Kindergarten developed a bowling game using recycled yogurt bottles from their lunch for the pins.
