ANGELS WOW ATTENDEES DURING S.T.E.M. FESTIVAL

Thank you to all of our IWA community members and students who made our second annual S.T.E.M. Festival such a huge success! The festival was held on March 8th in the school's Mother Patricia Gunning Gymnasium.

 

Festivalgoers had a blast as they visited over 30 student-led exhibits focused on various S.T.E.M. activities such as robotics, biology, 3D printing, drones, green screen photography, and so much more.

 

Integrated into the curriculum beginning at the Elementary Level, S.T.E.M. classes are designed to teach students a diverse range of critical thinking and reasoning skills. These types of lessons enhance student collaboration, creativity, and communication skills while also preparing students for potential careers in S.T.E.M.

ANGEL BUDDIES GATHER TO BEGIN LENTEN CELEBRATIONS

Students at the Elementary Level met with their eighth grade Angel Buddies on February 19th for an activity focused on the scripture John 12:24.

In preparation for Lent, Angels unpacked the mysteries of life and death by planting small seedlings into dirt. Come springtime, the students will join together once again to marvel at how their small, hard, dead grain of wheat transformed into a soft, vibrant plant bursting with life, just as Jesus did.
