My Home Page


    There are many areas to the website that I know you will find great value in.  My Curriculum for each grade is in my Classroom News page. I have also put in my grading criteria and  Classroom rules in the Classroom News pages .Please note that the New Diocesan Grading Criteria states that effort, conduct and participation are not assessed in the student's grade, but in the Personal Growth section of the report card this year. Physical Education Grade Schedules are located in my Classroom News. 

                     There is a great article in my Classroom News about the cause of more Stress Fractures among Girls playing soccer today and the causes of this issue. The article is from the Home News Tribune in August.    Also Check out my class      schedule    for the 2018- 2019 school year.
