6th Grade Gets Foreign Chocolate
Our 6th Grade Geography class visited the European country of Belgium. While the class was on its virtual tour, the class found a city named Bruges. This city is renowned for its chocolate, and one of the best loved chocolate stores there is B by B. The students investigated the B by B website and found that they could purchase chocolate. So the class pooled its money, and in two short weeks, they had their chocolate straight from Belgium. The class ordered a variety of chocolate from Vanilla Raspberry Rose to milk chocolate hazelnut. Yay, Chocolate!

Prayer of St. Columba

Be a bright flame before me, Oh God, a guiding star above me. Be a smooth path below me, a kindly shepherd behind me today, tonight and for ever. Alone with none but you, my God I journey on my way; what need I fear when you are near, O Lord of night and day? More secure am I within your hand than if a multitude did round me stand.

Amen
