On Wednesday March 25th we held our annual Spelling Bee. All students in grades five through eight participated.

Science is a main component of the curriculum at Ste Jeanne d'Arc School and the annual Science Fair is a hallmark of the program. Each year students at all grade levels compete and are recognized for their achievements in science. This year thirty-six students received recognition from judges who work and teach in the fields of science and technology. Months of hard work and effort, research, experimentation and practice lead up to the Fair when each student has the opportunity to present their projects to judges for evaluation.
The New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) has recently confirmed our continued accreditation. This decision was made as a result of a two-year study ending with an on-site visit from the Visiting Committee last October.
