Dear St. Walter Family,

Our eighth grade students are in the final stages of their History Fair projects. Some of this year’s historical topics include The Cherry Mine Disaster; The LaSalle Hotel Fire; Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Chicago Beginnings; and The Manhattan Project.

Students will be judged on their research papers, project boards, and presentations. The students’ boards will be on display in the hallway of school. Be sure to stop by our History Fair Open House on Sunday, March 24, either before (9:30-10:30) or after (11:30-12:30) the Sunday Mass at 10:30.

Many of you have signed up to join us at the STEM Family Night on Tuesday, March 26. This is sure to be a fun and engaging evening. All supplies are provided – just bring your imagination! There is still time to RSVP, please see the flyer in today’s Yellow Folder.

The second edition of our School Newspaper, Wildcat Review, will hit the newsstand this Friday. Students may purchase a copy of the student written newspaper for $1. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to share things that interest them. Thank you to our writers – Payton Aguilar, Kennedy Bray, Olivia Bucko, Britney Darling, Patrick Donohue, Treazure Edwards, Marissa Mims, Valerie Nelson and Cielo Vargas – and our teacher moderators, Mrs. Kowaleski and Mrs. Solava.

Finally, our teachers have started to review textbook samples for our new science resources for next school year. This will be an important purchase as we align our curriculum to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and bring in more Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) integration.
