8th grade Parents ~
At conferences please write your child's "diploma name" and sign up to help with Halloween Carnival! You will see "Saint Boards" on display outside room 14. These are to give you and your child ideas for the saint boards that they should be and have been working on for the past week. They are due Monday, October 28. The poster should be at least a 20 x ~30 tag or foam board. It needs to indicate the saint without saying their name and give the factual details of their early life, adult life, why they are considered a saint: how they affected the world, and their legacy: patronages, shrines, devotions, symbols, etc. The board should include visuals that indicate the saint and at least 1 picture of the saint. Past visuals are on display outside room 14 when you come to conferences. These boards will be on display at the museum along with any artifacts the student has found or created to help depict their saint. The "Saint Wax museum" is the culmination of the 1 1/2 month long project about saints. Your student should have turned in a biographical report on a saint of their choice this past Tuesday, and a " connection to their saint" essay today. This too will be on display at the Wax Museum. Reminder from previous BLOGS: The Saint Wax Museum is in our, OLM, auditorium from 10-12 next Friday, November 1st. This is following the All Saints' Day mass that morning at 8:15. The students will come to school in costume as they will participate in the mass - in costume. We then take down mass, set up the museum, and open the doors at 10:00. This is also a 12:30 dismissal day as it is the 1st Friday of the month. Please visit our museum if you can and encourage others to join you -it is a special experience.
