Grandparents Day
The early snow did not stop the Notre Dame Elementary School community from enjoying its annual Grandparents Day on Oct. 24. More than 700 grandparents and guests joined the children for a day that included the celebration of Mass, exciting Bingo games, classroom visits and a special treat. Bishop Roger Gries and Father Dave Woost celebrated the masses on the very special day.
Pumpkin Day at NDES
Second-graders at Notre Dame Elementary School celebrated Pumpkin Day last week. It was a wonderfully fun and educational day for all.
Parent volunteers came into the class and worked with their groups measuring the circumference of the pumpkin, counting the ribs, estimating the number of seeds, discussing the life cycle and food and so much more. Parents also carved the pumpkins with the students while counting all of the seeds inside.
After the day was over, the class shared its beautiful jack-o-lanterns with the Sisters of Notre Dame to decorate their rooms for Halloween.
Fall Color Tour
The students at Notre Dame Elementary Preschool learned a new word: deciduous, which described the leaf-shedding trees they saw on their recent “fall color tour.”
The preschool students took advantage of a warm fall day to enjoy the grounds at the Notre Dame Education Center. They took a walk through the pine forest and saw signs of animals preparing for the coming winter. They then hiked a trail through the deciduous trees to observe how those leaves change color and fall to the ground, unlike the pine needles that stay green.
Treasures were collected on the field trip for further examination in their classrooms.
Halloween Party
Superheroes and princesses were seen roaming the halls of Notre Dame Elementary Preschool as the students enjoyed their annual Halloween party. Candy corn bowling and spider ring toss were some of the fun games at this year’s party. In addition, all of the children took a walk down a special trick-or-treat trail.
