iPads for SHAS

Posted by: on Feb 9, 2016 in SHAS NEWS | No Comments

The Catholic Foundation of the St. Cloud Diocese recently hosted a video contest for Catholic school students of the diocese to tell a story from the bible by using an iPad.  Our SHAS 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students each participated as a class.  As a result, they won 3 iPads for our school.  These iPads were presented to the school by Curt Hanson from the Catholic Foundation Tuesday morning, February 8th.  We are very grateful to Catholic Foundation for the many things they do for Catholic Schools.

IMG_5715Happy Catholic Schools Week Everyone!
This week is all about celebrating who we are as a Catholic school.

Monday, February 1st:
SHAS started the week out with a whole lot of fun, playing fun super hero themed games this morning. Teachers utilized all six classrooms in the main building, hosting a game to six groups of students for 15 minutes each per group. Today was also Rainbow dress up day. Students in each grade had a color theme to dress to in each grade from red in preschool to purple in 4th grade.
