EIGHTH GRADE-Miss Hutcherson

It is hard to believe that we are in the 4th quarter. This year has flown by so fast. The 8th graders are still working hard in all of their subject areas. They are learning about polynomials in Math, and the Great Depression in History. In addition, students are still working on preparing for their Confirmation next month. Throughout Lent they were reading the book Desiderata, which highlights the lives of various saints using the mysteries of the Rosary. The book also includes personal stories that help the students relate to and reflect on each mystery. Next month, the 8th graders will be going on two special field trips. The first is to the Holocaust Museum, and the second is to the Basilica and National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation.
