Final Blog as the Class of 2018

As the end of the 2017-2018 school year approaches we begin to reflect on the memories we have created. As the Class of 2018, we have been extremely occupied with graduation festivities. During this bittersweet time, we have realized how close we have become over the years.

Throughout the years, we have cherished the second home Saint Augustine School has given us. Our time here will not be forgotten. Saint Augustine School has helped us to mature into well-rounded young adults to help us in the future. From the extracurricular activities to the challenging academics not a single piece of knowledge has been wasted. Saint Augustine School helps their students to become humble, kind, strong, brave, and caring individuals. The faith that Saint Augustine’s has provided will last a lifetime. We, the Class of 2018, have grown in our love towards God because of the religious activities we experienced first hand everyday.  There is never a spare moment where God is not present in our eyes, guiding us throughout the day.

The friendships that we have made at Saint Augustine School will always hold a special place in our hearts. We will greatly miss our times together. From the laughing to the crying we shared together, we realized how we have become a family. We will forever love each other and wish the best for all the graduates during their  high school years and beyond. We would like to thank our fellow eighth graders for their help throughout the year with the blog. We appreciate every moment they dedicated to the blog.

One of the hardest goodbyes will be towards our teachers. They have helped us grow in our academics and faith. We have had many enjoyable moments together. Thank you for being our second parents. We will miss you greatly.

Lastly, we would like to welcome the new eigth grade editiors beginning in the Fall: Christopher Sanders, Benjamin Reyes, Natalina Sharp, and Aria Teare. We have great faith in them and wish them the best of luck in continuing the journey of the eighth grade blog.

On behalf of the Class of 2018, we would like to say how thankful we are for each other and our teachers. We have faced many challenges that have helped shape us into who we are today. We love Saint Augustine School with our whole hearts and will miss it greatly!

Grade 4 News

We interviewed Mr. Cola and asked him what the 4th Grade has been doing recently. In Social Studies they have been learning about different regions and countries of the world. To coincide with this they held an International Night, where each student setup a stand devoted their country of their choosing. They recently had an instructional mass with Father Brice to finish up their mass unit. For their field trip they will be going to Plymouth Plantation. They are holding a bake sale to raise money for it.

Thank you Mr. Cola for the interview, we can clearly see that grade four has been very busy!

Prek 4

Pre-K four has been a very busy class lately so I decided to ask the Pre-K four teacher, Mrs. LaPlante, what they’ve been doing in class. In math, the kids have been measuring Cheez-Its to see how big they are. In religion, they’ve been learning about all of the different days and events during Holy Week. In Social studies they’ve been learning about community workers and their importance. In science, they did an experiment! They learned about the importance of brushing your teeth by staining eggs. They put eggs in different cups overnight in milk, water, and soda to see what would happen like they were teeth! They guessed that the soda would make the eggs dirty and gross and they guessed right! After they took the eggs out, they brushed them clean with toothpaste and a toothbrush.

Thank you Mrs.LaPlante for letting me interview you! Have fun teaching Pre-K four!

Grade 3 News

Third grade, the grade after two but before four.

Recently, we got to interview a hand full of third graders about what they have been doing in their classroom. First we interviewed Gianni Corsini about his experience in third grade. “I’ve been learning math, science, and religion,” Gianni said when he was asked about his recent schooling, “how to be kind, and not littering”  Alice Didonato said “ We’ve been learning measurements.” The third grade class is currently working on “International Night” which according to P.J. Notargiacomo, “International Night is a project we made a poster board on a country presenting information”. The third graders were divided into groups, with each group representing a different country. Aidan Woodward, who was in the group writing about Canada said “It’s a really big place,” and  “My favorite baseball team, the Blue Jays play there.” Calla Foncesca told us about her project, which was on France. “We’ll be wearing berets to our presentation,” she told us. The third grade class has also been working on Easter projects. The third grade class has been working very hard on these projects and we wish them luck when they present on International Night.

Grade 6

We contacted Mrs. McCurdy and Mrs. Corsini and asked them to give us information regarding the going ons of 6th grade. According to Mrs. McCurdy, the 6th grade is finishing up the book Cheaper by the Dozen, and are about to start a project relating to the book. Mrs. Corsini says that they just completed MLA research papers and oral presentations on what makes their birthdays special. Next up, they’ll be doing pasta punctuation (using pasta for commas, quotation marks, etc.). They’ll also create punctuation posters,  crazy dialogues, and they will write a punctuation play.

Thank you teachers for taking the time to answer our questions.

Escape the Classroom-8th Grade Science

Yesterday in science class, the 8th Grade had an escape room type class during Science. We had to avoid nuclear annihilation by solving science related challenges and puzzles. There were 8 challenges all related to what we are learning in science class. We had two periods to finish the challenges or “the world would end”.  At the end there was a huge prize for each team that “saved the world”.  We all felt that this activity was very engaging, fun, helpful, and we would all love to do this again!

7th Grade News

7th Grade has been doing some interesting things in the past few weeks.  This trimester in math, Mrs. Fera has been teaching them inequalities in a very engaging way.  This includes getting to work with groups and going to work on the board and having a good time. We spoke to Mrs. Fera about how the 7th graders were doing with inequalities she said,”they are doing amazing.”

Also, the 7th Grade has been working on their Christmas Carol projects in art. They have previously seen the movie and read the novel in literature. They went to see the play at Trinity Repertory during the Christmas season. Now, in art, they have been working on their main projects for The Christmas Carol. They can make a drawing,  create costume designs, or a diorama of a set scene. All of their work will put into the Art Show at the end of the year.

Thank you Mrs. Fera and Mrs. Vescera for the interview for this blog. We hope the 7th graders continue to work hard and enjoy the remainder of the school year.

Pre-K 3


This month I interviewed Mrs. Shea, who happens to be my mom. She has worked at St. Augustine School for 10 years in different roles, most recently has a teacher’s assistant for Mrs. Betsy O’Rouke in PreK 3. She told me this month the Pre-K 3 students have been working on the alphabet and they are now  on the letter O. They have been doing some art projects with water coloring lambs, doing an Easter project, and learning their primary colors. They are excitedly preparing for the yearly Easter egg hunt which has made the Pre-K children happy. They are also doing well at writing their names and zipping up their jackets. So the PreK 3 children are doing well and I hope they stay with this school until they become eighth graders.
