Our primary section in the Library is complete!

St. Linus Parish and how generous they always are to us!

6th grade room 29 creating the scenery for their performance of
Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”.

The last day before Christmas break we had a very festive Christmas Carol Sing-A-Long
with the whole school in attendance as well as many
parents, grandparents and other family members.
The highlight for the group was the traditional “Twelve Days of Christmas”!
We certainly were in the Christmas Spirit!

Neive Boland in Mrs. Curran’s math class is using one of our new BrightLinks

After Christmas all 5 BrightLinks will be installed throughout the building
with more technology on the way.

The 3rd and 4th grade classes performed a Christmas Pageant
that depicted the Lord’s birth beautifully.
This is a scene of the 3 Kings visiting Herod before they followed the star to find Jesus in the manger.
The students sang classics such as Silent Night and O Come All Ye Faithful.
As well as a new classic, On This Holy Mountain, which we predict will be a new favorite.

Our 1st graders in Mrs. Lehnerer’s room are very active during P.E. playing soccer.
The students learn the rules of the game and also get a good workout
when they play organized sports during P.E. class.

The Christmas Pageant was performed beautifully by 3rd and 4th grade!
The students really enjoyed the opportunity to tell the story of the birth of our Lord!
Here are Keira Moran and Jimmy Lyons as Mary and Joseph on the way to Bethlehem.

Fifth grade project: Threatened and Endangered species of Illinois.
Students used the computer lab to research their species.
In art they used the iPads to draw their species.
They then were able to choose to paint on canvas,
sculpt with papier-mâché or clay, making a model of their species.
All students worked on painting the habitat background.
Complete with sound effects of crickets, frogs and water,
other grades were encouraged to view this display.

Our competitive cheerleaders qualified for the State competition
at their first qualifying event at the Thornton Fractional South Qualifier.
They will compete in Springfield in January so let’s wish them luck! Go Hawks!

This group made reindeer masks and they put their own individual spin on them.

On Polar Express Day the students and teachers wear their pajamas, read the story,
drink hot chocolate and make crafts! These are highlights of the Early Childhood program.
