Jesuit Academy students and staff celebrated Catholic Schools Week February 1 - 5. Unfortunately due to weather and school being closed for two days, several activities were moved to the week of February 8.
Activities included a visit from The Pancake Man for lunch, a visit from Wildlife Encounters with six different animals, all-school bowling, and a city-wide mass at St. Cecilia's for our 8th graders.
National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. The theme for Catholic Schools Week 2016 was “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” The week focuses on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to church, our communities and to the country.
In 6th grade World History, Jesuit Academy students have been studying about Ancient Greek shields and what they represented to the individuals who carried them. As part of the lesson, students designed and created their own shields using a variety of methods.
Two students in class used sleds to create their shields. One then used paper mache, duct tape, and paint to make his shield, while the other used spray paint, old magazines, and cardboard. Both decorated their shields with designs that represented their interests.
One shield is decorated with a basketball, football, and math symbols, communicating a love of sports and math. Another shield is decorated like the one Captain America carries because of his commitment to justice.
