May Crowning

May_Crowning_2014

 

Throughout the month of May, we honor Mary. The faculty and students show devotion to Our Lady through song, by praying the rosary, and by asking for her intercession. Our Lady of Charity’s school community also came together to honor Mary through a May Crowning ceremony. This special tradition truly brought us together to love and honor our Mother.

May Crowning is a special ceremony where students present an image of Mary with a crown of flowers. Our May court was comprised of our 8th grade leaders, two of whom, Kayla and Salvador, gave Our Lady of Guadalupe her crown. Two representatives from each grade were also chosen to process into the church and present Mary with flowers.

It is our prayer that our love for Mary brings us closer to our loving God. Mary, our mother, pray for us!

Second Graders Get College Ready

FullSizeRender-3Our 2nd grade students are already preparing for college! In both classrooms, they have been working in different college teams representing universities from across the nation The teams collaborate in their classroom learning centers and workshops.

In Social Studies classes, students have learned about the regions of the United States that each college is located in. In Math, they have used their measurement skills to create new buildings for their campuses. They have even written letters to their college's admissions departments, and inquired about good habits they can start today to prepare for college in the future. In return, they have received encouraging letters, maps, information books, and generous gifts from the universities. We are proud of our scholars as they prepare for their future.
