Catching a Leprechaun

Our second-graders have all the makings of becoming clever engineers in the future! Each of our students designed and built a leprechaun trap to (hopefully) catch one of those squirrelly little green imps. Most involve an elaborate system of trap doors and pulleys, while others have a psychological component to them. If anyone can outsmart a leprechaun, it’ll be one of our second-graders! Click on thumbnails below to enlarge.

New Staff Spotlight: Meet Sister Patricia Dunne

 

SrPatricia

This week, we’d like to introduce you to Sister Patricia Dunne. Sister Patricia joined our MSS family in the Learning Center around Christmastime.

 

Sister Patricia is a Chicago native, so she’s no stranger to the snow. As a Daughter of Charity, she has served missions in Chicago, Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee, Mississippi, and now here. She attended Marillac College in St. Louis, MO, where she earned a degree in Math with a minor in Education. She went on to receive her Masters in Social Work through Loyola University in Chicago.

She loves working with children because they “live in the present moment, they are quick to love and forgive, and quick to forget after they forgive.”

When she isn’t at the Learning Center sharing her gifts with the students, she likes to study genealogy, read, travel, walk, and be with friends.

Welcome to the MSS Family, Sister Patricia!
