Thanksgiving2

 Students enjoy Thanksgiving celebrations with their school buddies. At St. Mary's older grades and younger grades are paired up with "buddies." Then throughout the year, the buddies participate in a variety of activities. For example, buddies sit together at Mass so the older students can assist with crossing the street and model good behavior at Mass. If there's a class project in the younger grades where more assistance is needed sometimes the older buddies will visit (ex. a project to make homemade apple sauce). In these pictures, the activity was some fellowship and fun in celebration of Thanksgiving.

Over the Veterans day holiday weekend the St. Mary's Witsclash team traveled to Bryan High School to compete in the largest quiz bowl in Nebraska. Any sixth, seventh, or eighth grader can join the Witsclash team. At the Bryan tournament we did very well, with one of our teams seeded fourth in the bracket of over thirty teams. While we didn't win any trophies, it was a really fun experience for all of the teams.

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.

St. Mary's School brought out its Spirit Shirts and smiles to honor or veterans in the annual City of Bellevue Veterans parade on Saturday, November 11, 2017. Students, parents, teachers and faculty rode in the float or walked down Olde Towne Bellevue's Mission Avenue to Jackson Street. Our students really enjoy handing out candy of the smiling residents of Bellevue.

 

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.
