was a busy week in Room 8A!
As we are approaching our interim math assessments, the focus of 8th Grade Algebra this week was to begin reviewing.
We finished up our study of inequalities, and the students did pretty well on their unit test, although every Algebra student's
nemesis, word problems, still proved to be a bit challenging for some! Since Mr., Flint loves word problems,
we will continue to work on those during the coming week during our review sessions. Topics we will be reviewing will also
include systems of linear equations and solving and graphing inequalities.
In 8th Grade Religion class, we discussed the offenses against
the Sacrament of Matrimony. In today's contemporary world, many of these serious matters we learned are unfortunately considered
acceptable, but we, as disciples of Jesus, know otherwise. The students exhibited a great deal of insight and faith in dealing
with these serious matters. We also began our study of HIV/AIDS and the Christian approach to this horrible condition. In
the coming week, we are all very excited about our impending eighth grade performance of the Living Stations of the Cross!
In Pre-Algebra this past week,
the seventh graders continued their investigation of geometric concepts, focusing on angles and triangles. We also began
our consideration of the all-important Pythagorean Theorem. The seventh graders enjoyed several hands-on activities which
helped to drive home the concepts under study. And our annual competition, "April Madness," is well underway! 7B
is currently in the lead...are you going to let them win, 7A?
The eighth grade, under the direction of the Student Council, is finishing their preparations for
the "Living Stations of the Cross" which will be presented this week! Performances will
be on Wednesday at 1:30 p.m., and on Good Friday at 7:00 p.m., both in the upper church. Please join us for this meaningful
celebration of Our Lord's passion, death, and resurrection. Happy Easter, everyone!
