Pilgrimage to St. Joseph

Pilgrimage to
St. Joseph

On our pilgrimage to St. Joseph’s Oratory in Montreal, Maeve enjoyed the bells in the awesome bell tower.  Teaguen and Allie liked the organ music in the church.  Audrey’s favorite part was the garden with the stations of the cross.  Ava’s best memories are looking at the city and seeing St. Andre’s heart.

2016-2017This year the Language Arts curriculum and the Social Studies curriculum will be integrated into a program called Humanities. The focus will be on world literature, world history, and world geography  especially Europe, Asia, and Africa. The class will meet from 9:30-11:30 each day . Every student is expected to hand in the summer reading/writing assignments on the first day of school as well as bring the organized binder to class. Agendas will be available then. I look forward to an adventure in learning as world history has so many stories that I have yet to learn! And I welcome you to be curious about the explorations ahead.7th and 8th grade Humanities Program 2016-17
