The two art teachers at Saint Philip, have been very busy over the past few weeks. They have been busy, with the help of the students, creating a mural for Saint Philip.

The squares were then all fired in the kiln, so they look nice and shiney. All of the squares were then put on the wall outside of Holy Angel Hall in the shape...

For the Thanksgiving food drive this year, the teachers are bringing turkeys. I think that this is a very good thing to do.

They devote so much of their time and energy to getting food to people in need, and that is living out...

The Peace Builder of the week is Patrick Krappman. He is very nice and is very quiet in class. He is in kindergarten and in KA. He got a peace builder referral for teaching others how to play catch. He took the time to help a student learn something new. I hope that other people will look up to this kindergartener as an example of how to be a peace builder. When you see him passing by, make sure to give a big thanks to him for setting an example of how a student of St. Philip acts. ...
