Here are some pics we snapped of the 8th grade class’ final day at Peace. The 7th Grade class hosted a special luncheon then performed skits of their favorite 8th grade class memories. Next, came the traditional High Five Run through all the other school students, followed by the signing of the shirts. For the first time in 10 years, rain moved us back into the gym to finish up. We love you eighth graders and we are excited to pray for you and follow you on your next journey.
Our 7th graders were happy as clams. Well, we mean clams that are not being dissected. Mrs. Schlanz’s science students were so intrigued while doing their sea life dissection projects.
Middle School Math and Science Teacher Lisa Schlanz received a standing ovation as she was announced as the Wheeling Area Chamber of Commerce’s Middle School Teacher of the Year! Mrs. Schlanz creates a wonderful learning environment for her students, taking learning outside the traditional walls of the classroom. She teaches her students not only to be problem solvers but also to be outstanding leaders in life through their faith in Jesus. She is shown below with her 7th Grade homeroom class.
Our seventh and eighth grade celebrated the sacrament of Confirmation with Fr. Doug Ondeck, Msgr. Kevin Quirk and Bishop Michael Bransfield. May the Holy Spirit continue to guide you on your spiritual journey, and may you all continue to let others see Christ in You!
Help our 7th graders keep the valley warm! The students hope to collect 200 coats to donate to a local charity. Help them by purchasing a new coat or donating a gently used coat. The greatest need is for warm children’s coats. Bring your donation to school by Dec. 15th. Be a Champion by Design for PEACE!
In keeping with our school year theme, Champions by Design, our Family & Friends Day theme centered on Sports Champions. Not just those who are champions in their chosen activity, but those who use their God-given time, talent and treasure to make the world a better place. Each student chose an athlete and researched their sports history and the charity or foundation they support. They were required to create a poster about their athlete, design a bottle doll and dress up as the athlete. They also brought in food to share with the rest of the school and their guests.
