Young Authors’ Workshop

Young Authors’ Workshop


     Students in Kindergarten through grade eight recently attended an assembly, The Young Authors’ Workshop. The presentation began with a performance by a mime named Mrs. Jones. Mrs. Jones started to mime at age ten, and still continues to this day. Many mimes usually have an all white painted face, but Mrs. Jones face was painted half white. She performed a couple of scenes to impress us, and I think all the students were surprised and very happy.

     At the end of her presentation Mrs. Jones gave a fun assignment, to write our own story. This assignment was designed to help us with writing a quick, decent story. She explained the story should have a person, place, problem and solution. Mrs. Jones then stopped by every classroom, explaining about mimes, why she started, and helped the students as they were writing. The students were working very hard in their groups, and having fun too.

     When all the students handed in their amazing stories, she picked one winner from each grade. Afterwards, we all went back into the gymnasium and Mrs. Jones read the winning stories and then performed them through miming. All the stories were beautifully written and very funny as she was acting them out.  The students did an excellent job, and had a great time writing them. 

We would like to thank Home and School for providing students with this educational and fun activity.

Grandparents Day

 Grandparents Day 

     Grandparent’s Day at St. Augustine’s is a special day. The day starts off with grandparents coming to Mass and participating in it with their grandchildren. After Mass, the grandparents are invited back to the school for donuts and coffee. Then they are welcome to walk down the hallways and explore the school. The grandparents also get an opportunity to talk to their grandchild’s teachers and learn about what they are doing.   

     Grandparents play an important role in our lives. Between dropping us off and picking us up from school, to attending our sport events, they support us in all we do. Grandparents hold a special place in our hearts and teach us many life lessons. 

     Thank you, grandparents, for all you do.

Mrs. Scaramuzzo’s Interview

Did you Major in education in college, if not what was your major?

I originally began my college career wanting to become a math teacher, but then my ideas changed to major in history and science.

If you weren’t teaching, is there another career you would choose?

This would be tough since I always wanted to be a teacher at a young age. If I had choose another profession I guess I would choose owing my own coffee shop. Granted I would be drinking more coffee than selling it but it would be well worth it!

What was your first job as an educator?

I started with long term positions in North Providence, then was hired at Blessed Sacrament School as a Middle School Teacher.

What’s your definition of a great teacher?

A great teacher who enjoys what he or she does everyday. Coming to school to help each student grow and strive in everything they do.

What kind of hobbies do you enjoy during your free time?

My free time is primarily spending time with my husband Mike and my two daughters Isabella and Lucia. I do enjoy watching football as well, especially the best team, the New England Patriots!

Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions. We hope you have a great school year.

Grade 3 News

We had asked the third grade teacher Ms. Morelli the following questions about the happenings in grade 3.

How has the school year been so far?

So far the school year has been wonderful in third grade. Once again, I am blessed with fabulous students and families that really help to make out community the best it can be. We have a lot of fun planned for Trimester three.

Are there any projects coming up?

Many students are excited for our “Who Was Project”. Each student has a month to read a “Who Was” biography book, create a costume and presentation as that person. All grades are then invited to walk through our living museum. Last year the project was a huge hit because students get to choose from over 100 people. One student chose to be Stan Lee, the creator of Marvel!

What have the students been learning in math?

We will be focusing on Math until the last days of school. For the remaining of the year, we will focus on measurements, geometry, multiplication, division, fractions, and decimals.

What have the students been learning in Science?

I am so excited to start our final science unit “Life Science”. This will focus on plants and animals. In May, we will have a visitor come to our class bringing an incubator. For about a month, we will observe these chicks hatch and grow. In June, we will take a field trip to Casey Farm in South Kingstown to release the chickens, and learn about both marine and mammal life.

Thank you Ms. Morelli for answering our questions. We hope you have a good rest of the school year and achieve all your goals before the end of the year. Have a good summer.
