Prepare for National
'History Day' Fair
Corda mór Dancers
Perform at Carondelet
Thursday, March 5
Over the past several weeks, Carondelet
students in grades K-8 have participated in the Art Adventure Program, an
initiative of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (MIA). The program, led by
trained parent volunteers, introduces students to works of art from a variety
of cultures. Students then create artwork based on the different styles they
learned about. This year’s series is “Sources of Strength”. Later this month, students will visit the MIA where they will have a chance to see the actual
pieces they've learned about. The program is an annual event for Carondelet Catholic School.
Carondelet's 8th graders have been busy preparing for National History Day.
On Thursday, February 19 a total of forty-six projects were judged in four
categories: Exhibits, Documentaries, Performances, and Websites. Several of
the projects will move onto regionals, followed by a statewide competition.
Over the past several months, students have conducted research that has included
visiting museums, libraries and universities, and doing both primary and secondary research including personal interviews
with professors, scholars and field experts. The project is overseen by
Carondelet history teacher, Kathryn Hardy. Congratulations to our eighth graders on their hard work!
On Thursday, March 5 the students at
Carondelet's Lower and Upper Campuses will enjoy an early start to St. Patrick's Day
celebrations with two special performances from Corda mór Irish dance school. The dancers are scheduled to perform at 10:30 AM at the Lower Campus and 11:30 AM at the Upper Campus. Several of the dancers are students at Carondelet Catholic School. Corda mór teaches traditional Irish dance to over 100 students in the Twin Cities area. Please join us if your schedule allows!
