How Sweet It Is to go to a Catholic School!
Everyone gets new things once in awhile and you give an excited hurray! New things are nice, but Saint Mary’s School is even better. It’s a trustworthy generational school I would recommend going to.
Getting an education at St. Mary’s is like eating your favorite sweet everyday and you never get tired of it. Here are some prospering qualities St. Mary’s has: First, we have limitless friendship. There’s never an extreme quarrel and everyone is respectful towards their classmates. Second, the teachers are high quality. They are extremely caring and passionate towards all. Most of all, I adore my schools religious beliefs. I can talk about Jesus and worship him during Wednesday Mass. I have been going to this amazing school for seven years since I was four and I realize I am really lucky to be a part of this wonderful institution, even a million candies and cakes wouldn’t total how sweet Saint Mary’s is!

4th Grade Engineers built a structure with 50 straws and tape that is free standing. Tallest structure wins!
The SMS first graders have been studying shadows and they conducted an experiment. They marked the placement of the shadows on a paper plate several times during the day. Each time the shadow was in a different spot.
They concluded that the Earth is moving throughout the day, which is why the shadow moves.
The SMS first graders celebrated Valentine’s Day by counting and graphing candy hearts for Math.
