Congratulations to Yash ’22 whose poem “Alone” will be included in the Appelley Publishing 2022 Rising Stars Collection this spring! During a unit on John Steinbeck’s novella Of Mice and Men, Yash wrote this poem based on a Dorothea Lange photo that expresses the struggle to achieve the American dream. We are proud of you, Yash!

Inspired by her studies of the Corporal Works of Mercy in religion class, one Fifth Class student brought Goal III: A social awareness which impels to action, to life. Vivian first learned about Blessing Bags from her mom and when her religion teacher, Mrs. Strother, began talking about the ways the class was going to participate in the Corporal Works of Mercy, Vivian knew she wanted to make Blessing Bags on her own.
Sixth Class students led their Middle School peers in Stations of the Cross outside this morning. The students prayerfully guided their classmates through this Lenten journey!
Grounded in the work of Carol Dweck, Ph.D., student-led parent teacher conferences support the development of a growth mindset, or the student’s love of learning and the development of resilience needed for “great accomplishment.” These conversations between students, parents and teachers focus on student strengths, areas of opportunity and goals.
Eighth Class students recently completed an Art Installation for the David Shepard Wildlife Foundation that was featured in St. Charles County Lifestyle Magazine.
