EIGHTH GRADE-Miss Hutcherson




October started with the students completing the IOWA tests. The 8th graders were extremely happy that this would be their last year taking these tests.  Once testing was done, the class was able to get back to the normal routine. In History, they have finished learning about the Civil War and are moving on to the Reconstruction era. In Religion they have been studying the Old Testament promises of a Savior, and how that promise was fulfilled with Jesus Christ. On October 11, they joined the rest of the upper grades in leading the Living Rosary, which they did a beautiful job with. The 8th graders have also started preparing for their Confirmation by choosing their Saint names and writing a paper on him or her. In the next few weeks, the students will be going on a few field trips, and participating in a Confirmation retreat. It is a great way to end the first quarter
