Thanks so much to Mrs. Wood and our kindergarten – 8th grade students for presenting a wonderful musical tribute to our veterans on Monday evening.  The gym was filled with patriotism for our country and gratitude to our veterans for serving for our country and our freedom.  The recognition of our veterans who were in attendance during the Armed Forces salute was especially touching, and we are glad that they were able to be with us.  Thanks, also, to our school parents for providing snacks, and to the PTO for providing drinks and for manning the snack area.

QCES CURRICULUM MAPPING UPDATE:

posted by Gary Clayton

During October and November, the QCES teachers began working together on creating a common science curriculum.  The teachers from Blessed Sacrament, St. Francis, St. Dominic, and St. Peter participated in half-day meetings with their grade level colleagues.  The teachers from each school shared what is currently being taught and discussed the Next Generation Science Standards. At the conclusion of each session, the grade level teams collaboratively agreed on what science units all four schools will teach.  Through this work, the teachers were not only able to create horizontal alignment for the four schools at each grade but also develop collaborative relationships.
