Beginning in the Second Trimester our Eighth Grade students studied about the respect that Catholics have for all life from conception to natural death. They also learned how to do research and write a persuasive essay on a topic promoting the dignity of life. The top two essays were selected from each English class and these 12 finalists read their essay on video and we have put together a virtual oratory contest. We would like to thank the assistance of the religion teachers: Mr. Finn and Mr. York and the English teachers: Mrs. Agulles, Mrs. Page, and Mr. Walsh.
Congratulations to our winners: First Place: Kaitlyn Cole, Second Place: Gabriel Blanco, and Third Place: Gabriella D’Orlando.
