Grade 8 just learned about characteristic and non-characteristic properties of matter and how the characteristic properties help us to identify a substance.
In this lab, they observed the behavior of 4 common substances (baking soda, ascorbic acid, cornstarch and baking powder) when reacting with water, vinegar, iodine and bromothymol blue. They listed out the unique properties of these four powders while reacting with the liquids.
St. John’s encourages students to express their individuality. Our Elementary Art teacher, Ms. Behaeghel (or “Ms B.” as our students call her), sparked the Grade 1 students’ imagination by asking them to design the cover page of their sketchbook. They started by writing the word “ART” in capital letters and were then asked to decorate each letter by drawing items that represent them and that they like.
St. John’s is known for celebrating the diversity of its community. All nationalities, beliefs, cultures, and background are welcomed with open arms in the school. Each year, many new students from around the world join the school over the summer and this year is no different.
A large number of students have two or three nationalities. In total, the student body at St. John’s now represents 56 nationalities from around the world. From China to Brazil, Norway to South Africa: the world truly comes together at St. John’s!
