Yesterday Stein Beekeepers came to Mrs. Z. and Mrs. Stoll’s classroom with one of their observation bee hives. The children were able to see the queen bee, the worker bees and the drones. They learned about how bees have two stomachs, one for nectar and one for food. They also got to take home some honey sticks and wildflowers to plant. Thank you Stein’s for coming to our classroom to teach us about bees!

Forty-one 4th-7th graders participated in this year's SPH boys basketball camp this past week. Players worked on the fundamentals of offense and defense. They also worked on individual skills to make them better basketball players.
This past week our girls basketball program hosted its youth camp! Thank you to all the players who worked so hard all week, and to all of our high school student athletes who brought their energy and excitement for the game to our younger kids. In addition to learning basketball skills, the girls took part in a free throw competition, a live action game, and many other fun activities. We look forward to seeing these girls on the court again this winter!
The 4 year olds in Miss Nardecchia and Mrs. Griffin's class are getting ready for kindergarten. Each student picked a zoo animal. They completed a report at home that included a picture of their animal, what their animal eats, and something their animal can and can not do. Earlier this week they used model magic to create their animal and once it dried they colored it. Yesterday they were able to present their reports and animal sculptures to their friends.
Enjoy reading this week's testimonial from Friends for the Future Committee member, Shelly Roth... When it became time to consider where our children would go to school, I immediately wanted our kids to go to public school because of the cost. I thought of better things I could spend that “tuition money” on. Additionally, I went to a public school and I turned out fine. However, this was not a compromise my husband, John (SPH 1993) was willing to make and now I understand why. I am so glad we made the decision to send our kids to Norwalk Catholic. I feel Norwalk Catholic provides an excellent faith based academic program. My husband comes from a strong Catholic family and continuing with a Catholic education is important. Our children get the attention they need with smaller class sizes. Friends for the Future makes tuition affordable for such an excellent education. Please consider giving a gift to our school, but more importantly, please continue to pray for the success of our school, teachers and students.

Miss Abel’s class has been learning about measurement in math class. To practice their skills, they went around the room using counting cubes to measure different insects and compared the shorter ones to the longer ones. They worked with their friends and had fun practicing this valuable life skill!
