7th vs. 8th Volleyball Game

Yesterday to kick off our Catholic Schools Week celebration, the 7th and 8th grades faced off in a volleyball game while the younger students and faculty cheered them on. Though the 8th grade had the advantage of more subs, the 7th grade played with spirit and enthusiasm. Both teams had a blast, and their fans loved cheering them on!

Today, the fans and players will be reversed during our PeeWee football games. Parents are welcome to come watch the excitement at 12:30. Pics to come!

Pro Life March

On Friday, while Catholics from across the nation gathered in Washington DC to march for life, our students held their own march at school. Led by the 1st graders, the entire school processed in silence in support of all life. They first marched through the classroom hallways and then headed to the gym where the school community prayed a decade of the rosary together. Their silent procession and prayerful support of the Pro Life cause serve as a beautiful example of the faith life at OLS.

Mastering Multiplication

Ms. Schweiss's third graders are hard at work mastering their multiplication facts. They know that repetition is key to learning, so they take turns quizzing each other with their multiplication flash cards.

How To Book Reports

At the end of last quarter, Mrs. Huelsing's second graders worked on book reports on a nonfiction book. Specifically, they chose books that taught them how to do something. After reading the book, the students followed the instructions, created a special item, and brought it to show the class. Students chose a wide array of items to create: a wooden bench, wax gifts, origami churches, and a paper mache globe, among other things.
