O Great St. Joseph of Cupertino who while on earth did obtain from God the grace to be asked at your examination only the questions you knew, obtain for me a like favor in the examinations for which I am now preparing.  In return, I promise to make you known and cause you to be invoked.  Through Christ our Lord. Amen

St. Joseph of Cupertino, Pray for us

Here are a few lessons and links to help us focus on getting back to work for the second semester!  It will be just as busy as the 1st semester, but many fun and exciting things await our students in the upcoming months!


We started January with a Civil Rights literature Unit.  We will be studying authors, musicians, and poets of the time period of 1947-1968.  We will be discussing the lives of the great Jackie Robinson, Martin Luther King Jr, Rosa Parks, and Ruby Bridges.  We recently read the book "Martin's Big Words" and chose a favorite quote of his.  We then wrote about what those words meant to us.  This lesson is focusing us on the virtue of justice.

In Social Science we will be learning at the original 13 colonies and the tyrant King George!  Here is a helpful video from School House Rocks!

Science brings us many opportunities to experiment as we look at physical and chemical changes. Chem4kids.com is a fun website for students interested in this subject!

We recently took a placement test in MobyMax Math (see practice link below) and the results were amazing!  Our kids are working so hard!  We will begin fractions shortly.  This will lead us to our annual state assessments.

In Religion we were able to focus on the Christmas season, the Epiphany, and soon, the Baptism of Jesus.  We will start our discussion over the Holy Days of Obligation and the meaning behind each one.

Reminder:  you can always have your child study their weekly spelling words in the link below!
