As the 2017-2018 school year comes to an end, we reflect on events like Sports Day and others that allow us to enjoy our St. Mel’s community.  The sixth grade would like to let you in on what we’ve been up to lately.  In Science, we have been learning about the body systems and how our bodies work.  Also, we’ve been learning more about how we impact our environment, both positively and negatively.  Learning about and appraising our impacts can help us take better care of the planet that God has blessed us with.  In Social Studies, we are visiting Africa and learning about the Kingdoms and diverse cultures that make up the continent.  Prior to that, we examined the cultures of Medieval and Renaissance Europe.  Exploring the cultures of Europe allows us to get more in touch with the societies where many of us have our roots.  Learning about these influential cultures allows us to see where we have come from, and maybe get an idea where we as a civilization are going.  Here at St. Mel’s we nourish the mind; and the soul as well.  Our 6th grade continues its faith journey, learning about the roots of Christianity.  We hope all of you have had a great 2018 so far and that it stays that way.  The 6th Grade would like to sincerely wish everyone a safe, happy, healthy, and faith filled summer.

As we continue to fly through the 2017-2018 school year, the sixth grade would like to let you in on what we’ve been up to lately.  In Science, we have been learning about the Kingdoms of life here on Earth.  Learning more about how our animal, plant, and microscopic neighbors can allow us to become more familiar with the creatures, and plants God has blessed us with.  In Social Studies, we have visited the roots of Western society in Ancient Greece, and Rome.  Also, we have visited the Middle East and learned more about the desert and Islam.  Learning about these influential cultures allows us to see where we have come from, and maybe get an idea where we as a civilization are going.  Here at St. Mel’s we nourish the mind; and the soul as well.  Our 6th grade continues its faith journey, learning about the roots of Christianity.  We hope all of you are having as wonderful a 2018 as we are.

As the year flies by we would like to give you a snapshot of our journey through 6th grade.  In Science, we are continuing our quest to find out what makes up the world around us.  We have moved on from learning about the energies that power the world we live in to the matter that makes everything around us.   In Social Studies, we are continuing our journey through the ancient world.  We have made stops in Egypt, Mesopotamia, and are now spending some time in Ancient India.  Learning about these early cultures helps us become more familiar with why and how our world has developed the way it has.  We are also studying about our faith here at St. Mel’s.  The 6th grade is taking special care to study the roots of our Christianity and how we have developed spiritually and socially through God.  We look forward to continuing our journey through the 6th grade

The students are filled with joy and excitement for their teacher Mrs. Vanessa Tinari on the birth of her son Jack Christopher. They have created cards with expressions of love for her and prayers for God’s blessings for her family. On behalf of all the students at St. Mel’s, 6th grade says “Congratulation!”
