Catholic Schools Week is a week where we celebrate being a catholic school. We celebrate with honoring something every day.  

1.) Monday- Academic Day

Students who go to 9am liturgy at Holy Trinity on Sunday get to wear free dress on Monday

2.) Tuesday- Community Day

Service Assembly & Tag Day

3.) Wednesday- Parents’ Day

We have a 9:45am mass, where parents are encouraged to join!

4.) Thursdays- Teachers’ Day

Dress like a Teacher Day

Here is an example of two students dressing like Mrs. Micallef last year!

5.) Friday- Students’ Day

Students don’t have any homework Thursday night, in preparation for Students’ Day celebrations on Friday.

The free dress theme for this year is “Fandom”, which means that you should dress according to whatever you’re a fan of! Do you love the Redskins? Wear a jersey! Do you love Taylor Swift? Wear a concert t-shirt! Get creative.

The most important thing to remember each day of Catholic Schools Week (and every day of the year) is that we are a Catholic school and we are people for others.

The ball in a cup game has been very popular in fifth grade. This game typically has a wooden handle, with a small ball attached to a string and one cup, in which the player tries to catch the ball. Different versions of this game are played all over the world.

There are three various versions of the same game in the 5.2 homeroom.  Liam M. and Cash B. are two fifth graders in 5-2 that are particularly infatuated with the game. They are also good friends and this game highlights their friendly competitive nature. To date, Liam’s record is getting the ball in a cup 108 times in a row and Cash’s record is 64 times in a row. Those records are from the medium sized game.

Another student in 5.2, Nahor S., combined his creative skills and knowledge of this popular game during Tinker Time, and he created his own game out of classroom supplies. Students and teachers alike were impressed by his inventive skills. Of course, it has the simple part about the ball and the cup part, but he decided to make it even more fun by adding another fun twist to his version. He added a little bowl shaped contraption at the end of the handle, so you can try to land the ball in it too.

Halloween is coming up and one of the oldest traditions is to make Jack-o-lanterns. Here are some ideas of pumpkins faces you can make. Enjoy!

  1. One cool idea is to carve your name or a monogram onto your pumpkin.

2. Another neat idea is to carve a word onto your pumpkin and make a design of that word.

Titan Tips

By: Ali G.

  1. On an extra sheet of paper, in a notepad, or on a dry-erase board, plan out a homework schedule for yourself before you start your homework each day or even at the beginning of the week.  Organize this schedule depending on things like what is due soonest and how long each assignment will take.  You can also add after-school activities.  This will help you stay organized while doing your homework and keep you from being stressed.  This is also a great way to make sure that you turn in all of your homework on time.
  2. Clean out your binder at the end of each month or quarter.  Get rid of all those tests and old homework assignments that are stacked up in your folders.  Also, get rid of pens, pencils, erasers and other things in your pencil case that you don’t or can’t use.  This will help you not to lose anything and keep your pencil case a reasonable size.
  3. Figure out who has all the same classes as you.  You might have already thought this one through but if you are having a off-day and spaced on a couple things you might want to know who can refresh your memory.  Also, you and this friend can work together to remember what homework you have.  Just as long as you don’t rely on this person for everything, then I’m sure that they will be happy to help you.
