All Around the School

On a quiet cloudy Wednesday, our Frassati Falcons, from youngest to oldest, settled into moments of focus, loud and wild fun, and small group games.

Reconciliation

On Wednesday, two groups of students made their way over to St. Mary of the Lake for Reconciliation. While the cold winds made for a brisk walk, the bright sun blessed the church and shined bright throughout the space. The first group at mass was our fifth through eighth-grade students, followed by our second, third, […]

Board Games Inspired by Books

How do you teach middle school students to dissect a book? To dig into the plot? To define the roles of the characters? And to look for themes? Some teachers would assign a book report, some a basic Q & A sheet. However, in Mrs. Schmidtbauer’s class, the seventh graders were given a different kind […]
