Saintly Scholars . . . Get Ready, Get Set, GO!!!!

St. Ambrose's ACES you are invited to participate in a new and exciting challenge called "Saintly Scholars". If you look on the left side of our blog you will see a link to Mrs. Renz's Mastery Club. When you click on the link you will see a list of challenges that are divided by subject area. Let your child choose a challenge and let the fun and learning begin. There is also a link to help with completing the challenge. Students are also encouraged to explore books they may find in the library to help with their answers. When your child has the answer to the challenge, go back to the left side of the blog. Click on the link to our very own "Student Blogs". Every "Saintly Scholar" has their own blog to submit their answers. In the title of the post, please put the subject and challenge number (i.e. Science Challenge 9). Once they create and submit a new post with the answer to the challenge, I will receive an email. To complete the challenge and receive a point, the students will need to be able to tell me the answer to the challenge orally. This will show true mastery of the topic. There are some challenges that will not be able to be recorded on their "Student Blogs". For example, there is a math challenge that asks the students to draw lines of symmetry for any letters of the alphabet that are symmetrical. They can just complete the challenge on a piece of paper and turn that in to me. We will be keeping track of points and posting those on our blog periodically. Let me know if you have any questions about the process. Good luck to all "Saintly Scholars" who are willing to take the challenge!!!
