October started with the students completing the IOWA tests. The 8th graders were extremely happy that this year would be their last taking these tests.  Once testing was done, the class was able to get back to the normal routine. They have finished learning about the Civil War and each completed a report on a battle that was fought.  In religion they have been studying the fall of man, the Old Testament promises of a Savior, and how that promise was fulfilled with Jesus Christ. They have also been looking at the Baltimore Catechism with Fr. John. In addition to their normal studies, students have begun preparing for their Confirmation. They have picked their Saint names, and are looking forward to the Confirmation retreat on October 28.
