In fifth grade, Mrs. Saia focuses her Religion lessons on Holy Week and what they can do during the Lenten season. The fifth graders have an assignment to read a Gospel passage about Holy Week everyday during Lent and do an activity that coincides with the reading. They also learn about the flight of the Israelite's in Exodus and how it relates to why Jesus did what he did during Holy Week. The fifth graders also participate in a "Jelly Bean Prayer" where each student can earn a jelly bean a day by doing a certain action, such as making a sacrifice for a day or doing a good deed.
In sixth grade, Mrs. Claxton focuses her Religion lessons on the Stations of the Cross. Every year sixth grade portrays the Stations of the Cross during a prayer service for the entire school. The sixth graders will focus on each station to further understand each one.
We look forward to a very kind and helpful Lenten season this year!
