Spring is almost here, but that doesn’t mean we are going to let the grass grow under our feet at St. Augustine School. There is lots going on in the final third of our year!
All of St. Augustine School was in our 2nd Annual STEM Fair. Lower grades made projects using recyclables. They also did dioramas regarding animals and their natural habitats. The older grades followed the UN’s 17 Sustainable Goals and worked in groups to achieve projects which will help humanity. For example; one group used netting to help the people in India with their polluted waters. Three engineers evaluated all the projects in 20 areas. We are STEM SMART!
Some of our students will move on to display their projects at the Archdiocese of Newark STEM EXPO later in the year where their projects will be showcased along side of the work of other students throughout the Archdiocese.
After the tragedy that occurred in Parkland, Florida St. Augustine students wanted to express their concern and support for victims of violence. Grade 6, 7 and 8 walked around the campus and finished in St. Augustine Church where they prayed that Rosary, praying for the Florida victims and their families, and that legislation will increase the age to 21 for purchasing guns.
Don’t forget about our annual Sr. Roberta O’Hea Scholarship Dinner. Please join us in supporting the wonderful students who attend St. Augustine School on May 2, 2018. Full details found here. If you cannot make it, please consider sending on a donation. Every little bit helps to make the difference in the life of a St. Augustine student. Any questions?
