Posted on October 28, 2019

On September 13, 2019 our newly formed Student Council for this school year was installed during our Opening School Mass.  Students from grades 6-8 compose the 9-member board of the student government. The final selection was made by the principal and middle school teachers. Criteria for nomination is based on leadership, responsibility, and the ability to relate to the faculty, staff, and the student body. The term of office is one year. The council meets monthly, discusses current school issues, and makes suggestions for additional school activities. Mrs. Cavera & Miss Biscaglia serve as moderators for the student council.

We visited the new Stem Lab and learned about safety first and the importance of listening during our lab activities. We began our chapter 1 in Religion knowing that Jesus was both human and divine and how we can be disciples of Christ.
