GRAND NATIONAL CHAMPION!

Second Grade student, William Markevich, was named Grand National Grade-Level Champion of Zaner-Bloser's 2016 National Handwriting Contest! He ranked 1st out of about 40,000 second-grade students who competed in this contest. Well done to William's teacher, Ms. Patricia Prokuski, for doing such an excellent job working with her students on their handwriting skills! This is the third time a student at St. Constance School won National Champion in their grade level! Wait, there's more winners! Third-grader, Phillip Kaczor and seventh-grader, Ysabelle Pinpin are state level winners in this competition! Congratulations and great job to William, Phillip, and Ysabelle! We are all so proud of you! Pictured with William and his parents is Zaner-Bloser contest representative, Millicent Clyburn.

IJAS State Science Fair in Decatur, IL

On May 14th, the IJAS State Science Fair was held at Millikin University in Decatur, Il. There were 1,017 projects on display at the Fair. The participants in attendance ranged from 7th grade through seniors in high school. Two of St. Constance’s 8th grade students, Matthew Burzec and Jakub Kapusta, presented their project titled “Bye Bye e.Coli” to the judges. Their project determined which one of four different antibiotics reduced the population of e.Coli bacteria the quickest. Their presentation of the project earned them silver awards. We are proud of their achievement! In addition, St. Constance was also recognized for the achievement in science education that led to our school being represented at the IJAS State Science Fair. Congratulations to these students and to their science teacher, Ms. Katrina Odrobina.

St. Constance Science Club

St. Constance School was recently offered the opportunity to facilitate a science club after-school program as part of a partnership with the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. During this after-school science program, students will develop their science process skills through inquiry-based activities to discover the true nature of science. By asking questions, making observations, creating models and conducting investigations, students will hone their scientific skills that foster critical thinking. As part of their hands-on investigations, students will practice constructing explanations, collaborating with others, and communicating findings. At the end of the learning experience, all students who took part in the club will visit the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.

Celebrating All Saints Day

Miss Jennifer Blecka's 5th Grade class on completed their projects about the Saints just in time for All Saint's Day! The students each chose a Saint that they liked, researched & wrote a report, drew a beautiful mural, and presented a speech on their special Saint. Together, Miss Blecka and the 5th Grade learned all about various Saints, and some of those we researched are: St. Patrick, St. Adalbert, St. Agnes, St. Lucy, St. Maximillian Kolbe, St. Miguel Pro, St. Pope John Paul II, and of course our patron Saint; St. Constance. Please come and visit our classroom to view our projects that are presented on our wall. Fantastic job, 5th Grade!
