Ascension 4th grade students are getting in the spirit for Saint Patrick's Day this weekend.  On Wednesday afternoon both classes visited the Ursuline Center for a combined lesson on Limericks, a popular and fun form of poetry.  The poems consist of 5 lines and are often short, funny, rhyme and have a bouncy rhythm.  Ms. Ford  taught the students the components of a Limerick and Mrs Douglass provided examples.  After, the students worked independently or with a partner to create their own Limerick.  It was an afternoon filled with creativity as well as quite a few giggles.

Within the week the school gathered for prayer on Ash Wednesday and for sports at Boys' Pack the Place! Students also studied measurement and regrouping in math, created Lenten projects, reviewed Charlotte's Web, learned about Creation and animals, and learned about famous women for International Women's Day!
