EIGHTH GRADE GRADUATION

Congratulations to Elijah Kitchen, Clementina Ortiz, Aiden Steinmetz and Ella Seibert! These eighth graders celebrated their transition to high school next fall with a special graduation ceremony on May 24th. Family and friends gathered to hear reflections and experiences from the graduates.

KINDERGARTEN END OF YEAR CELEBRATION

Parents, family and friends joined Mrs. Linda Shetzer’s kindergarten class for an “End-of-Year Celebration” on May 21st. Attendees enjoyed an award presentation, dessert and a slideshow highlighting the kindergartners throughout the school year.

PLANTING SEEDS FOR THE FUTURE

Kindergartners planted pumpkin plants in the school’s flower bed on May 18th. During a class project at Halloween, the class found that some of the seeds inside their pumpkin had sprouted. They planted them in pots and nurtured them all year. Mrs. Shetzer hopes to use the pumpkins for next year’s kindergarten class.

YEAR END CELEBRATIONS

Students in grades K-8 celebrated the last day of the school year on May 24th with Mass, an awards assembly and luncheon. Students also met their prayer pals–parishioners who have been exchanging letters and praying for students throughout the year.

INTERNET SAFETY TIPS

Throughout the month of January, students will be covering Internet safety in Mrs. Antonia Frohnen’s technology classes. Parents are encouraged to speak to students about the need to be careful on the Internet. Below are suggestions and websites that parents and students can explore for more information.

Students will learn the “Cyber Five” (i.e. five helpful rules to be safer on Internet) with a short animation that can be found at www.abcya.com/cyber_five_internet_safety.htm. The “Cyber Five” rules are: 1) Never give out personal information. 2) Don’t download alone; avoid viruses. 3) Don’t respond to a bully. 4) Copy and paste. Save it and print. Keep the evidence. 5) If you feel uncomfortable with what you see, tell an adult you trust.

Additional safety rules include don’t overshare, don’t disclose your address, don’t talk to strangers, don’t arrange meetings without permission from your parents, tell an adult about anything or anyone that makes you feel uncomfortable.
