SJPII Students Serve Others During Lent

Guided by their devout and loving teacher, Miss Branecky, SJPII third and fourth grade students decided to serve the other classes in some way as a Lenten sacrifice.

Last week, the students served the littlest disciples by reading with them! How beautiful!


Cathedral Field Trip

Catholic School’s Week started off in a most beautiful way with a visit to our own St. Francis Xavier Cathedral.

Fr. Thiel generously shared his time and expertise in teaching the children a little bit about sacred architecture.

Beloved cathedral volunteer, Carol Joppy, taught the students some really interesting things about our very own diocese.

Of course, cathedral rector, Fr. Dorner was a splendid host to us!

What a beautiful cathedral and diocesan history we have in Green Bay. Praise God. Let us pray for the maintenance of our churches and for all the faithful lay and religious people in our diocese!


Greek and Roman Trunk Show

What an afternoon! The children of SJPII were transfixed with Pr. and Mrs. Adrete’s presentation on daily life and culture in ancient Rome! The boys and girls of our dear school learned what it was like to be a boy or girl living in Rome over 2000 years ago!

They sampled a stylus and slate, sported togas, and donned military gear. It was an especially fruitful and timely presentation for our 1st/2nd grade class, the students of which are currently steeped in Roman history.

Check out these great pictures from our event! Thank you to all who made this event possible. We are so grateful for the relationship that we have formed with UWGB’s own ancient history experts!

Apprentices to Two Master Artists

Have you heard of Giotto or Fra Angelico? These 2 artists are considered to have “rare and perfect talents”. The 3rd/4th in art class were apprentices under these classic masters from the past.

Each apprentice was able to experience what it was like to paint their own mini fresco. Next time you see one of these apprentices ask them what makes fresco painting different from other forms of painting.
