8th Grade News
On Friday, November 16th, Parker Rose, Student Council President, and Joseph Zamorski, shared their knowledge of the life of a Civil War soldier, by dressing in their outfits for re-enactment(See photos below!) They explained the uniform, and the day to day life of a soldier.
We also had a special presentation from Sister Mary Helen, our principal. Sister taught the students about the important role of the Sisters of St. Joseph during the Civil War. A favorite story is how sisters stood on the deck of the hospital ship as a gunboat passed by in order to protect the hospital. It worked! The gunboat just passed on by! What brave women!
A big thank you to Sister Mary Helen, Parker, and Joe for their assistance in our learning this week!
P.S. Look at our 8th Spanish page for photos of our decorations and celebration of the Day of the Dead.
