Chemical Reactions, Inertia, and Sound Energy
Fifth grade students were busy this past winter learning about chemical reactions, inertia, and sound energy. They made play dough to learn about chemical reactions. The fun continued when students went into creative mode and made sculptures. Inertia became exciting when students tried to pull an index card stacked with cubes from the top of an open jar. Next, they applied their knowledge of sound energy by creating their own musical instruments and demonstrating high and low pitches. Check out their video. Who thought science could be so exciting?

Seventh Grade Bacteria Growth Lab
The seventh grade used burners and agar to grow their own bacteria. We melted down the agar with water and created a gelatinous substance. We poured that into a Petri dish and let it set over night. The next day we took cotton swabs and swabbed any surface that has bacteria on it! (Floor, hands, shoes, mouths, etc) They took the swab and swirled it into the gelatinous agar! We put the Petri Dish with the sample in a warm dark place and watched the bacteria grow!

The “Power of One” is a bullying prevention program that challenges students to take an active approach in stopping this behavior. On November 14th the students at Saint Joseph School were active participants in role playing designed to create scenarios to mirror situations they may find themselves in. During the assembly examples of physical and verbal bullying were addressed through short skits in which the students were actively involved. The “dPower of One” program empowers the students to identify what bullying looks like and how they can make a difference in the way they respond to these situations. Using the “Power of One” they learned to react to bullies by ignoring them, telling them to stop or by telling a teacher. It was an educational opportunity for our students that raises awareness of such an important issue.

On November 12th, grades two and three were able to see the performance of Pippi Longstocking at the Arlington Center for the Arts. Arlington Children’s Theater put on a magnificent show of a very well loved children’s book. Both grades read the story in school, and being able to see it come to life was a lot of fun for all involved. Students had the opportunity to ask questions to the cast and directors of the play about the process of making a play a reality. Students were then able to come back to school and compare the differences and similarities of the book and the play.

Wednesday, November 5th was Grade Two's Pumpkin Day! Thanks to some parent volunteers and generous pumpkin donations, the children were able to participate in four activity stations. These engaging stations helped the students learn about the pumpkin life cycle, pumpkin buoyancy, pumpkin circumference and weight, and pumpkin seed counting. The second graders sharpened their math and science skills as they made estimates, skip counted, labeled diagrams and recorded their data and observations. The day also included pumpkin songs, pumpkin storybooks and pumpkin writing activities.

Third Grade Presents: The Most Beautiful Story Ever Told!
On Tuesday, December 16, 2014 grades K-3 put on a beautiful Christmas presentation for the families of St. Joseph School. The younger students showcased their beautiful singing talents. Kindergarten sang "Rudolph" and "Away in a Manger." Next, the first grade presented, "All I Want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth." They also memorized and recited a lovely Christmas poem. The first part of the show was concluded by a lovely rendition of "The Friendly Beasts" by our second graders. The third grade then presented their beautifully touching version of the Nativity. Our third grade students sang wonderful songs that told the birth of our Lord. They also recited verses from the Gospel to tell the good news of Jesus and acted out scenes depicting Mary and the Visitation by the angel, Joseph and the Innkeeper, the shepherds on the hill, and the arrival of the three kings! What a wonderful job the third grade did. We are all so proud of them!

Parents and relatives of second graders were invited to surprise the children by becoming a Mystery Reader in the classroom. Being a Mystery Reader is a covert mission! Interested family members signed up for available Wednesday afternoon dates. Mystery Readers send in 5 clues about themselves prior to their scheduled visit. The students enjoyed predicting whom their surprise visitor might be. These photos include only some of the many Mystery Readers who surprised us so far this year. We are looking forwad to more special visitors like this throughout the school year. If additional second grade parents or relatives are interested, there are still many available dates to choose from. Please contact the grade two teachers to arrange.
