January


6th Grade
Religion- This month we study how we have ownership of our free will and from this gift from God we make our life decisions.  We will also will be looking at the 8th Commandment, "Thou Shall Not Bear False Witness Against Thy Neighbor".  This commandment governs our powers of communication.
History- Well, this is the big month!  January is Catholic Schools Week and as always in 6th Grade History we will be creating a museum.  This year the museum will cover the ancient empire of Mesopotamia.  Each student will be creating an artifact and help construct the museum by doing an important job such as curator, advertising, tour guide, planning and design, or physical construction of the museum.   

7th Grade
Religion- This month we will be studying the topics of Respect, Responsibility, and Service to Others.  During the month we discuss how our actions reflect upon us, how it is our responsibility to follow Jesus' teachings, as well as study the lives of saints, the parts of the Church, and habits we need to make and break.  We will also be reading scripture from the bible that covers these topics.  Also, during Catholic School's Week we will be honoring Jesus with the Presentation of the Lord's Mass on February 2.  We will be practicing the last week of January for the Mass on the 2nd.  This Mass celebrates the introduction of Jesus to the Jewish community as a baby. 
History- We will finish our study of the American Revolution.  We will begin our study of the US Constitution and will be taking the American Constitution Test in the month of February.

8th Grade
Religion-  We are continuing to work on our Sacrament of Confirmation that the students will be celebrating on February 26.  We are creating our books that will be shown to Bishop Vrassas on that day. 
History- We are completing our study of World War I.  The students all created a song and dance routine to present to the class displaying their understanding of the topic.  Then we move on the topic of The Roaring Twenties!  Students will learn and understand how this transformative decade changed America.  From the fashion of flappers, to the Barons of Wall Street and Big Business, America became the richest nation on earth.  But hold on to your hats, we crash and burn in 1929 as Black Tuesday arrives and the world falls into economic distress.
