June 2016 will be bittersweet for me. When I was asked by Cheektowaga Central if I wanted to take the AIS teaching position at MQA I eagerly accepted. Coming from a background of teaching 4th grade in two wonderful Catholic schools previously I knew the importance of having God present and acknowledged in every aspect of a school. What I came to find out about MQA was that they had an extraordinary Principal in Mrs. Bagwell. I have witnessed the amazing things she has done for MQA, and the love with which she does everything and gives to everyone. I truly was blessed to be working beside her, and she will always remain a dear friend. I cannot image MQA without MaryAlice Bagwell but I know she has left a wonderful legacy of her leadership to this school. I wish you well in your future and I want to thank you for the past 4 years and the love you have shown to every person here at MQA. You will be missed tremendously. God Bless. 💜
NJHS Members met to create burritos for the Ronald McDonald House. Members brought in donations and we created an assembly line to roll burritos and make chips/dip for families in need. One of the many service projects we do to help our community!
Fifth grade has been working with some exciting “Super” meal worms the past few weeks! This is our ESP Science Kit that we received for being a STREAM school! Our meal worms come from South America and the students are conducting a variety experiments to learn more about the worms and their behavior. Students are also learning about experiments, variables, conducting experiments, and interpreting data. Today the 5th grade completed a test on “What type of food do meal worms prefer?”. The students are having a blast with our new “friends” and learning all about treating animals humanely in the process.
Here is fifth grade conducting sensory tests on our super meal worms to see what senses they use in order to make them back up. This is a part of our ESP science kits which is a part of STREAM.
