Our first Paint Night was a fun night out! Looking forward to doing another again soon!
Families gathered for a school spirit breakfast before the kick off of the 2018 Brooklyn St. Patrick’s Day Parade at Prospect Park.
It may have been a dreary day outside today, but St. Joseph the Worker was vibrant with learning. We had a N.U.T. Day for Catholic Relief Fund. Our 7th grade parent Mr. Middleton came in to teach kids about the basics of economics. Grades 6-8 had fun with his interactive activities!
Deacon Jim came by to teach the little ones about the Stations of the Cross.
Ms. Pat and Ms. Witthohn worked on assembling our larger cross made up of smaller crosses made by each student in the school.
5th grade has been learning about rock formations in science class. Ms. Cadotte’s class worked in small groups to build volcanoes. Today they made their volcano erupt.
Catholic Schools Week continues with a Multicultural Luncheon. Students and parents enjoyed a fun lunch with food from the cultures of our diverse population at St. Joseph the Worker.
The theme of this year’s Catholic Schools week is Learn Serve Lead Succeed.
Monday was Mismatch Day and Student – Teacher Swap Day
Upper grade students went around the school to teach a lesson to the younger grades. One of the lessons taught to PreK4 by 7th grades is pictured below. They practice counting and reading numbers.
