Kindergarten has been very busy lately. During a unit in Health on Healthy Eating, they brought in healthy food items. They put them into the four food groups and then took the items to the food pantry to share with others. The students also brought in treats for Halloween “goodie bags.” The children stuffed the goodie bags and they will be distributed through the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry as well as their healthy items. The classes toured the food pantry to see the types of food needed by the families. Kinder will make bags for Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Easter also.
Our 8th grade students visited St. Pius X High School last week. The morning included presentations by St. Pius X students, faculty, and administrators. The students also toured the school campus.
Global Collaboration Day took place on Thursday, September 15th. The primary goal was to demonstrate the power of global connectivity in the classroom. The 4th and 5th graders participated in a variety of activities: they built structures using pencils and rubber bands, traveled through a virtual map and learned unique facts about a variety of countries, and made kites decorated with the thoughts, dreams, and hopes of each student. Over 2000 students participated in this event.
Congratulations to the following students who were inducted into our 2016-2017 Student Council.

At the conclusion of the weekly All-School Mass, one grade-level is chosen to take the "Vocations Chalice" back to class with them. The chalice is displayed in the classroom during the upcoming week and the class says special prayers for vocations. Let's all pray for Vocations.

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle, and high schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. Every year the U. S. Department of Education seeks out and celebrates great American schools, schools demonstrating that all students can achieve to high levels. More than 7,500 of schools across the country have been presented with this coveted award. The National Blue Ribbon School award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content. The National Blue Ribbon School flag gracing an entry or flying overhead is a widely recognized symbol of exemplary teaching and learning.
Raise your eyes and see
St. Thomas More in victory.
In this family of families,
we sing in unity.
With the voice of the tiger
And the stripes of the martyr,
We march always onward.
Our hope is in the Lord.
Man for all seasons pray for us.
We are the world’s good
Servants, but God’s first.
