STEM Fair was another success as our middle school students had an opportunity to display and present all of their innovative ideas and research. Students worked on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and presented their solutions to tackle real-world problems.
Congratulations to all of our students and in particular to the 8th grade group that finished in 1st place - Casey, Kevin, Mia, Mia, and Kathleen. They tried to find alternative types of fuel. The fuel that they extracted actually worked and lit a lantern!
The 7th grade also displayed the zoos they made for a science project and our Pre-K to grade 4 classes also worked on amazing STEM projects that were also on display in the gym.
Volunteers from The Seeing Eye organization of Morristown visited with our students and faculty last week during an assembly. Students had an opportunity to ask questions and meet four Seeing Eye dogs that are in training.
It was a wonderful experience and we thank Dr. Breslauer for organizing this assembly.
The newly created MakerSpace room located near the library and art rooms is a colorful room filled with all kinds of building materials. This room was "created" during the summer (with the hard work of Mr. Cruz, Fr. Johan and Mr. Castillo) and will be a place where our younger students will work together using the engineering design process to build objects to solve problems. This is all part of our STEAM integration in the curriculum and it's a whole lot of fun!
In addition to building materials like wooden blocks, cardboard, and plastic containers, there are also Amazon Fire HD tablets for programming BB-8 Sphero robots. Students will also be challenged with Little Bits Student kits that teach simple circuity.
Congratulations to our 8th graders on receiving their school pins during a special mass and reception with their families. They are now in the final stretch of their journey to graduation and the start of a new chapter in their lives. God Bless you all!
Thank You to all of our families, faculty, parishioners, and friends that supported the Academy's 25th Anniversary Tricky Tray. It was a huge success!
We also want to thank the parents who worked tirelessly all year - Mrs. Kerry Flood, Mrs. Sandy Slattery, Mrs. Denise Reece, and Mrs. Anne Mazzuca - and all the other parents and friends who worked behind the scenes. God Bless you all!
