Lord you have RISEN and given us New Life each day - help us to make the RIGHT CHOICES - use our Free Will - to achieve YOUR PURPOSE.
8th graders ~
Good morning - As we approach the weekend - which should mean a time away from our devices to enjoy God and family maybe out in nature - think about the schedule you are developing and how the weekend is/should be different than the weekdays. It puts life in a rhythm. Complete today's assignment and we'll continue to develop a schedule that helps us accomplish a balanced life, which will include all 4 aspects of us so that we can be the "best versions of ourselves."
4/20:Happy Easter Season - I hope you have had a peace-filled break and are looking forward to getting back into a routine. I think some of us discovered that we weren't getting up in time to do well in school during our first 31/2 weeks at on line learning. No matter the situation, some things need to happen regularly in order for life to flow smoothly - especially as we don't live in complete isolation - and that means things not in our routine will need our attention. In order for all of us to successfully finish this school year this needs to be addressed. You will be doing that in your various classes today.
4/19: Please join us today for the Chaplet of Divine Mercy at Our Lady of Mercy School Chapel on line at 1:00.

? of the Day:
4/24: Read opening! Check for Zoom classes - arrive a few minutes early! Complete Sunday readings due Monday!! See Classroom.
4/21: Due to many of us missing assignments I have adjusted our plans. Please catch up and go forward. Remember to check ALL classes for assignments. Many of you are behind - see missing work on optionC.
8th Grade Homework: Check ? of Day - EVERY day
4/24: Many of you did not do yesterday's physical aspect of your schedule - please do today (you'll regain full points) and EVERYONE needs to put your schedule in 24 hour increments -this will help you record and really see your use of time. Some of you are already commenting on areas needing change. Next week we'll look at our mental, spiritual, and emotional areas.
4/23: Today we are focusing on the physical aspects of humans: food, shelter - hygiene: dwelling, clothes, body, exercise, and sleep. If these are all in place we are usually very healthy creatures. Check your schedules and bold all the physical aspects of your day - you may need to add some in and look at the times - some of you are not really aware of time. This is going to become the schedule for the "best you."
4/22: Yesterday I asked you to think about a schedule - for the next three days we will develop that. Today you need to divide up your day with the "musts" - must get up, clean myself, eat at various times, do my "job" - yours is school, and any items that your family has you do as a routine - I have to fit in time cook food and to feed and care for my animals - these are musts every day for me. Each day I will resubmit your schedule in classroom and I will ask you to think about and add another aspect. You will eventually include things that address all 4 aspects of humanity: spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional to create a well balanced life. [One of my first musts is talk to my Creator, God, BEFORE I start my day - we will think about this.]
4/21: Today as you accomplish school - be thinking about a schedule that works for you - a schedule is the SAME ROUTINE every day - school days are 5 a week. Go to wau.org and read the first reading from Acts of the Apostles. It is appropriate to our world AND situation today - why? Share in classroom.
4/20: Please read the opening letter today. In classroom make 2 columns with the headings: Keep and Change.
In the "keep" column list the things that you felt positive about during break and our first 31/2 weeks of online school. In the "change" column list things that were not good during these times. We will be using these. This activity will also count for attendance today. Be thinking about a schedule that makes you successful.
