Today our third grade classes studied how quickly yeast rises and compared it to the way germs spread. They made pizza dough out of the yeast! Thank you to our wonderful 3rd grade teachers, Mrs. Osting & Mrs. Myers for creating a wonderful, hands on learning atmosphere for our students!
We celebrated Dr. Suess the past few weeks here at DSJ.
Mr. Stant read to Mrs. Elwer’s Kindergarten class. He wore his Dr. Suess hat too!
The librarians are hopeful that their dreams of building an Exploration Garden at the school will come true. To help with the cost of the garden, they hosted a cake raffle. Students could buy chances to win a beautiful cake made & donated by Baked to Perfection. The raffle raised $203.40. Thank you to everyone who participated and congratulations to Alivia Hines, the winner of the Suess Cake!
Ash Wednesday- Today we began the 40 days of Lent that lead to Easter with a mark on our foreheads. The ashes symbolize our sinfulness & publicly acknowledges our human imperfection. The realization that we can grow in holiness is the focus of our Lenten journey. The cross of ashes reminds us of our common humanity and our need to walk with and for those around us.
Our High School & Elementary kids attend Mass today. We also hosted a Run Your Ashes Off 5k. We had over 300 runners, walkers & rollers participate and raised over $4,500 for the St. Vincent De Paul Society!

The PTO began a Classroom Challenge for K-8 in November— the class that collects the most Box Tops, Chief Receipts & Campbell’s Labels each month is rewarded with a party of their choice. Each one of our Kindergarten classes has won for the first three months of the challenge. Their teachers chose a doughnut and juice party & they celebrated together last week! Mrs. Dickman’s class is the February winner! Continue to bring in your Box Tops, Chief Receipts & Cambell’s Labels to help your classroom win! Good Luck to all!
