Students from Saint Mary's School in Bellevue responded to the challenge from Omaha's Durham Museum and made overlapping geometric shapes on the playground to represent 100 Billion Nanometers (100 meters) for National Nanotechnology Day, today. We made a circle with a circumference of 100 billion nanometers, a rectangle with a perimeter of 100 billion nanometers and a square with an area of 100 billion square nanometers! The shapes were so large we had to take 4 separate pictures to show it all. Thanks for the challenge, Durham Museum. It was fun.

DSC 0415Special thanks to Father Matt Rolling who visited with the 5th grade and 7th grade Religion class on Thursday, September 28th. He shared his love for his vocation with the students. Father related the story of his call with humor and animation. He stressed the need for all of us to pray for what God wants for us instead of what we want." God made us so God knows and understands what is best for us," he said.

Father graduated from St. Mary's School, class of 1996. He attended Bellevue East High School.

He heads off to Rome on Monday. The students will be praying for him and for all priests. We appreciate his willingness to come and speak with our students.

parade6 yesIt's that time of year again as we begin school we take part in the annual Arrows to Aerospace Parade. Join us tomorrow at 8:15 A.M. to help decorate the school float or at 9:00 A.M. to take part in the parade. We will meet in the school parking lot. Make sure to wear your St. Mary's Spirit Wear or wear blue. It would be great if you could bring candy to toss to the little ones along the parade route. Can't wait to see you all there!
