Peter’s Patter for September 30-October 1
Fall greetings from 7th and 8th grades! It’s hard to believe we are already halfway through the first quarter of our school year.
Seventh and eighth grades were busy during September. In Religion class, the students began the year learning about how God has revealed himself to us and how the Magisterium has the role of guiding the members of the Church in what must be believed and done by the faithful followers. Math time has had algebra students reviewing operations with rational numbers and the distributive property while pre algebra students have been learning how to multiply and divide with negative numbers. In science, the students learned about Earth’s atmosphere and how it protects life on Earth. In geography, the students finished learning about our neighbor to the north–Canada– and have begun a research project on a country of their choice. The students are nearing the end of the novel Cheaper By the Dozen and are beginning to study nouns, pronouns, and adjectives in English class.
During the month of October, we will be praying the Rosary on Wednesday mornings at 8:30 a.m. All are welcome to join us in honoring the Virgin Mary during October.
