Villa mom and Nurse Practitioner in cardiology at Penn, Mrs. Seneca, came in to speak with 7th graders in their Science class about being heart healthy and the risk factors for heart disease to go along with their study of the circulatory system. She explained how different things can effect each person's heart rate and taught the girls how to check their pulse. She even brought along stethoscopes for some hands-on learning for the girls to listen to their heart beats. Thank you, Mrs. Seneca for sharing your expertise with our 7th grade today!

To celebrate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday, the Kindergarten had a “Dr. Seuss Friday!” The girls made Thing 1 and Thing 2 hats, wrote about what they would do if Thing 1 and Thing 2 came to school, Did a Cat in the Hat Photo Booth on the iPad, read three of Dr. Seuss’ books (even Green Eggs and Ham in French!), and used One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish Blue Fish for Math to model for subtraction! #vmlas #kindergarten #drseuss #happybirthday

We are so proud of the Kindergarten and First Graders for leading the singing and reading at Ash Wednesday Mass today for the first time! They did a wonderful job! Thank you to their teachers, Sister Margaret and all who helped to prepare them. And thank you to all who participated in the mass to help make it a meaningful and prayerful morning.

Third graders are learning about vocation. Today, Sister Patricia visited their class to speak to them about being a religious sister. The girls prepared questions in advance, and Sister told them the most important thing to remember is, "Whatever God asks you to do, he always gives you the grace to do it."

She spoke about how she came to be a part of the IHM community, the difference between a nun and a religious sister, what she loved most about being a sister ("The children," she said), how she knew she wanted to be a sister, how long she has been a sister, the different types of communities of sisters and their jobs and more. Thank you Sister for sharing this with the girls!
