It has been a pleasure serving the families of St. Aloysius this year! Please continue to read over the summer. Ideas for summer reading include:
1. Go to your local library and join the summer reading program.
2. Try reading a biography/autobiography this summer
3. Have a reading contest with a cousin or friend who can complete a series the fastest
4. Try a new genre of literature that you don't normally choose
5. Choose at least one piece of poetry to read this summer or write your own!
6. Read a novel and then design a cake that represents that novel for your family for dessert
7. Set a reading goal of yourself; how many minutes a day? a week? how many books? Challenge yourself!!
The key is to just read and enjoy your summer!!! See you all in August!

Hero Projects week!!! The 8th grade will present their oral speech on "What Makes a Hero" this Friday. These speeches will begin at 9:00 am. Please check the schedule that was sent home to know the approximate times.
The Hero projects are a culminating project in which the 8th grades students have read a biography about their chosen Hero, written a 7 page research paper, and compile a 5 minute speech addressing the concept of what makes a Hero? The speech is presented in front of the whole student body this Friday May 20th. If you are able to attend it really is a wonderful, educational experience. These students have worked very hard on this project and they really do a wonderful job reflecting on what actually makes a Hero.
