Did you know the eighth graders participate in the Christopher Columbus Scholastic Olympics every fall?
This year, 13 of our eighth graders won medals in various subjects:
At the weekly school Mass, Fr. Paguaga gave a special blessing to the Academy's students.
Students in PK-3 have been learning about North America and U.S.landmarks, such as the Statue of Liberty.
During Religion class, Kindergarten students made rosaries for the month of the Rosary.
The Kindergarten class enjoyed a visit from the Key Biscayne Fire Department, and learned about what firefighters do and the parts of the fire truck. Afterward, the students wrote two sentences about this experience in Spanish.
Fourth graders have been using music to reinforce their reading skills, vocabulary, fluency and overall comprehension. As a way of expressing emotions and feelings, using music has been engaging and has promoted student discussion. The students cite evidence from text, analyze lyrics, improvingtheir listening and speaking skills.
The fifth graders have been given the responsibility of leading the school's “Going Green” initiative. Kicking off this initiative, students are creating posters to educate about the importance of keeping our Earth clean and competing in the "Clean Up and Green Up" poster contest.
Students in sixth grade are working together to write persuasive essays, sendingthe message of staying drug free.
In the 41st Christopher Columbus Scholastic Olympics, our eighthgraders competed againstover 500 students representing more than 15 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese.
