This week, the First Graders spent time learning about Native Americans and Pilgrims. We spent time making necklaces and headbands with Native American symbols. The students also practiced weaving colorful patterns. Next, we read about Pilgrim life and made our own Pilgrim hats.
We have had some fun classroom visitors recently. Father Dave came to speak with us about the Bible story of creation. We had lots of interesting questions for him! We also enjoyed a presentation from the Spring Lake Fire Department about Fire Safety!
Robinette's Apple Orchard Field Trip
We had a wonderful time learning about the apple orchard! We toured the orchard, navigated a maze together, made apple cider, enjoyed donuts and picked our own apples. It was a beautiful day!
Inspired by Saint Mary and rooted in our Catholic faith, St. Mary's School fosters spiritual development, academic excellence, responsibility to self, and service to others in order that the Gospel of Christ may be known in the world.
