Twins Day By Seventh Grade On May 21 Holy Angels students celebrated Twins Day as part of Spirit Week. Most of the class participated. Boys and girls liked the idea of coordinating matching outďŹ ts. Time and preparation was obvious. Shopping trips were made. Long conversations about accessories were discussed. All in all, students said that this day was fun because they could match up with close friends. There were six pairs of actual twins. There were also groups as large as 11 students who dressed up. Even students who wore their uniforms were counted. Seventh graders loved Twins Day!


Each year we learn many new things whether it is spiritually, academically, or worldly. SIXTH grade has reflected on just that: It is easier to make and trust friends when you know that you only have a limited time to be together…..mariann l We should do our homework ahead so our teacher can check our work, or if we need help, we can always ask the teacher for help……justine t To not over think things because I will forget everything that s needed for tests……nathaniel d Taking 3 weeks off of school is pretty hard because you have to finish your schoolwork and homework the day you go back to school…….natalie c I learned to make a volcano out of a 2 liter soda bottle and dough and how to make it explode with mentos. I also learned that friendship is the closest bond you can have besides family. I also learned that if we stop, think, pray, and choose we can always make the right decision……. isabella l You should do your work ahead because you might not have time later on if you re doing practice for sports or you re going somewhere that day…..elizabeth c If I focus on my work, I can get it checked and then I will not have as many books to carry at the end of the day……rafael m I learned that bows are so pretty that they can help brighten up a classroom….jolly-johwyn c I learned that I should be more organized, so I don t lose my school supplies like I usually do….. cheri ann t I learned that we should always see the bright side of things, like Mrs. Nordman. ….justin g I learned that Mentos + soda = party……max g When learning something new, it s good to ask a lot of questions to understand it better………. arabella p I learned to pay attention in class or you get an “F”…..patricia u I learned that if we are really quiet, Mrs. Nordman will let us listen to the radio and sometimes we get to sing along. Its really fun!.......esiah g Using my time wisely will help me get ahead in my work…..julia a I learned that making new friends is a good thing and that you should always listen to your teacher so that you can be ready for the test. ….karina e I learned that I really love Math…..jamie p I learned that making new friends is easier than I thought it would be……sinead h I learned to take notes in order to achieve a better understanding of the lesson……kamille f I learned that managing your time is important because you are able to get your work done faster and have time to spend with others…..dominic f I learned to put a plastic bag in your desk as a trash can and empty it later…..ryan r I learned that true friends are always there for you when you need them……..jaylen n I ve learned that if I finish my work early, Mrs. Nordman will correct it, and give it to me if I have a mistake…..keilani v I learned to always do our work on time and never to be lazy…..angelica d I learned not to yawn in class so I don t get in trouble by the teacher. I have also learned that we should never drink anything except water at our desk……khobe a I learned how to use my time wisely to get good grades while participating in a sport…..jasmin j I learned about running for student council. …..jorden c I learned when to do an outline and I have always wanted to learn that. I also learned to take my time to receive a better grade. I learned to focus so I can get work done…..roshan t I learned that I should be enjoying the times that I have during each moment in this school year…..brandon r If I can do my work as slowly and neatly as possible, Mrs. Nordman will check my answers in my homework…….alexis b
