We will be working though lessons found on code.org, as well as using Kodu Game Lab to write our first programs.

 

Saint Research

(Class 4C) – Today we will be practicing our researching skills by looking for information on the internet. The person we are researching is Saint Francis Xavier, who is the namesake of our school.

Using the research links, please find:

      1. His date of birth
      2. His place of birth
      3. The names of parents and siblings
      4. A description of his childhood and teenage years
      5. Where, when, and how he died
      6. When and why he was canonized as a saint

To help you with your research, please use the links below to find information about Saint Francis Xavier
