4th Graders Moving
and Learning with
Mothers & Sons
St. Paul Saints Game
Outing on June 24
Carondelet is excited to announce that our fourth grade classes are now getting fresh air and exercise while they learn. Thanks to a recent grant, the class received “WalkKit” audio players for each student preloaded with over 100 podcasts on topics including science, social studies, and language arts.
The Walking Classroom is simple. Students take brisk 20-minute walks, as a class, while listening to the same custom-written, kid-friendly podcast. Each podcast begins with a brief health literacy message, and the lesson plans in the Teacher’s Guide help educators effectively discuss and review the podcast material. The program gets kids out of their seats and walking without sacrificing instructional time, and capitalizes on the strong connection between physical activity and improved brain function, resulting in improved classroom performance. Carondelet is one of four schools in the state to have introduced this new innovative technology to the school day.
Carondelet's Mother & Sons event is Sunday, June 24, 2018 at 3:30 PM at the Saint Paul Saints' baseball game! Price includes tickets to the game, a private space and dinner for current or incoming moms and sons, a book reading on the field before the game, running the bases and player autographs after the game, raffle baskets and more!
Please contact Kris Ott with questions on the event.
On Tuesday, June 5, Carondelet bid farewell to the 45 members of our 8th grade class of 2018. The festivities included a morning brunch for the eighth graders and parents, an evening graduation prayer service, followed by a parent-organized reception for the graduates at Calhoun Beach Club. May God bless this special class and their families as they transition to high school!
