EIGHTH GRADE-Miss Hutcherson




March has been a busy and exciting month for the students.  First of all March is Reading Month, so to celebrate, each classroom decorated their door using a book for inspiration.  The eighth graders also celebrated the month by decorating their lockers with a scene or cover from their favorite book, dressing up as their favorite characters, and listening to other teachers read some of their favorite stories to them. In other happenings, on March 8th, fourteen students from the 7th and 8thgrade were able to attend the annual Academic Olympics at Cabrini. Six of those students brought home medals for religion, math, history, health, and art. On March 14, we celebrated Pi Day in math class. Students enjoyed eating pies, and completed an art piece involving the numbers of Pi.  Among all of the excitement, students continued with their regular studies. In history they have finished WWI and the Roaring Twenties, and are moving on to the Great Depression. In religion, students are studying the early church and continuing to prep for their Confirmation, which is fast approaching.  Throughout all of this, we are also preparing ourselves for Easter by reading the book Desiderata, praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet as a class daily, and attending weekly holy hours with Fr. John.
