Grade 1 visited the Ursuline Center in May to design and construct amazing cities! Working on teams with parent helpers, the students created and built structures using recycled materials. What an amazing maker space lesson and good preparation for their upcoming architectural field trip!

On Friday, February 22 Home and School sponsored storytelling shows for students in Kindergarten through grade 6, "Megan Wells Presents Florence Nightingale: The Call to Serve," an informative and educational event in the Ursuline Center. Ms. Nightingale, a 19th century Englishwoman, is known as the founder of modern nursing.
What a wonderful idea! Mrs. Flowers has created a "Kindness Corner" where students can recognize others for their acts of kindness.
Today, the Monday of Catholic Schools Week, was a busy day in the library. Parishioner and illustrator Mrs. Katie Broussard introduced students to her recent work, Audacious Ignatius in small groups and groups of Buddies. The Ursuline Center is perfect for these events!
Mrs. Flowers know so much about books! Here she is introducing students to a wonderful series called Urgency Emergency, in which familiar nursery rhyme characters wind up in the Emergency Room! (Think Humpty Dumpty) After the story and a discussion Mrs. Flowers had many more similar books laid out on tables for the children to peruse.
DId you know that the Ursuline Center is also our "Maker Space?" The flexible space and moveable furniture make this an ideal place for classroom projects and presentations, as well as STEM projects. The 4th graders are learning to weave in our new library maker space! Students are using donated cds and yarn to make unique, creative and colorful designs with the help of Mrs. Doherty and Mrs. Flowers. Take a look!
Look who is visiting the Ursuline Center? Thanks to Ms. Grimm and our 5th grade artists “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” in the library!
Thanks to the Art Club and Ms. Grimm for painting beautiful new browsing sticks for the library! Each stick goes with a favorite picture book and will help us to keep all of our books in the right place.
On the right, the Ursuline Center was the perfect location for STEM presentations by the 4th and 5th graders. More information on Mrs. Douglass' Page.
