During Lent, Holy Child fifth graders wrote and shared their own prayers with their peers. As we celebrate the Easter Triduum of the passion and resurrection of Christ, we leave sin and death behind, and walk with Jesus into new life, love, peace and forgiveness. As we prepare for the Church's greatest celebration, we are reminded of the words of our foundress Cornelia Connelly, "It is precisely because you are called to live busy lives, that you must lead lives of prayer." On behalf of School of the Holy Child, we wish you a Happy and Blessed Easter!
Introducing the seventh grade Robotics Vlogs, where students demonstrate in pictures and video all that they are accomplishing in Robotics. During class, students are broken into teams to complete a series of programming challenges with their Lego robots using Mindstorms NXT kits and software. After each challenge, the teams video their robots completing the challenge and upload it to their online video blog (vlog). The vlogs provide video footage of their tasks and bring the real-world application of Robotics to life. This is something you have to see! You can link to the Robotics Vlogs at http://shc7thgraderobotics.blogspot.com/
During the Upper School's "Women of Action" Physics Lab, Juniors use their knowledge of electricity to re-purpose a computer desktop power cord. In order to accomplish the task, students cut off the unused end of the power cord and wire it into the electrical box they make and decorate. The electrical box has a switch and power plug. The heavy-duty extension cord students create can power two devices and switch off at the end of the source. A somewhat practical keepsake, the electrical boxes will last a life-time and provide a fond remembrance of their days in Physics Lab at Holy Child.

Spring is here! In the words of E.E. Cummings, "The earth laughs in flowers." And so it is in the seventh grade locker room at Holy Child.
After a winter that seemed to never end, seventh graders brought spring indoors this week. A trip through their locker room evokes the feel of warm breezes, budding flowers and sunshine! Thanks to the seventh graders for bringing their spring to school!
