Chick-Fil-A and the Baby Chicks in 3rd Grade

When 2010 OLP Grad Kelsey Schau saw the video of third grade singing Happy Birthday to one of the hatching chick’s they named “Chick-fil-A”, she was so excited and knew she had to visit her alma mater.
Schau, who is on the leadership team of Chick-fil-a in Morgantown, showed her boss (2017 Graduate Nate Nixon’s Aunt Lisa) the video of our students and the hatching of “Chick-fil-a” and the two gathered up stuffed cows to present them. Third grade was so tickled by the surprise visit and gift that they immediately got “Chick-fil-a” out of the cage and put him in her hands. Way to be EXTRAORDINARY, Kelsey! OLP loves you (and yes, we soooooo love Chick-fil-a)! Thank you so much!

Reaching Out – Faith in Action

Our students know how important it is to thank someone, especially with a handmade card. Our third grade recently thanked someone who works very hard for our diocese and has great love and respect for our Catholic schools. Well, that someone, Tim Bishop – OLP Parent and DWC Communications Director – stopped in to tell the children in person how much he appreciated the cards they surprised him with. He brought them lunch and told them that he received their cards when he was having a bad day. “You brought tears to my eyes and warmed my heart more than you will ever know.” 

Wilbur Comes to Visit

Mrs. Allman and the Temple family really know how to spark young minds! Our third grade has begun reading the classic novel Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White. To help make the book come alive the class was visited  by two of the piglets from the Temple family’s farm. It is lessons and experiences like this that make learning so fun. You never know what will be HATCHING next…. Hint. Hint!

What Did the Owl Eat?

Mrs. Allman and her third graders got their hands dirty dissecting owl pellets to discover what animals the owls ate. This is just part of the class’ lessons on life cycles, resources, and more. This class is also monitoring chicken eggs and they are expected to hatch very soon.
