Catholic Schools week was kicked off with the fourth annual Academic Bowl in the Parish Center. The students were divided into 15 teams. Each team had one or two students from every grade. The students had to answer questions created by the teachers. The winning team (pictured here) answered 47 out of 50 questions! Congratulations!
On Tuesday the students participated in game time. Each student was encouraged to bring a board or card game to share. It was a nice way to get together with friends from another grade and have some fun!
On Tuesday the school was treated to a presentation entitled “Birds of Prey” The bird handlers showed the students 7 different bird species and shared amazing facts about each. Owls, falcons and ravens flew across the gym, coming within inches of the students heads. One raven was able to land on a teacher’s arm, take a soda can from her hand and recycle it in the bin! Awesome! Thanks to SACPO for sponsoring this fun presentation!
