Now on Sale! – The BIG Raffle 2013-14
Drawing held March 17th, 2014. Need not be present to win. Proceeds benefit Cathedral of the Annunciation School.
What does one get when dry ice is mixed with warm water? What happens to the gas when a little Dawn detergent forms a seal over the vapor? Ask a second, third, fourth, or fifth grader these questions and he/she will describe how the egg shaped bubble was formed (see the lower left hand corner of the photo above)! During the science demonstration on Halloween morning, Mrs. Rainwater taught her students about the properties of carbon dioxide and polymers. In addition, students learned about centripetal force and cohesion and surface tension. They were able to make ghost bubbles (carbon dioxide) and goo worms (polymers), and feel ghost eggs (polymers). They sent bone-chilling screams throughout the halls of the school when they combined an inflated balloon with a hex nut. The surprise presentation was concluded when a pumpkin oozed a foamy substance that was created by using yeast as a catalyst to separate the water and oxygen from hydrogen peroxide.
Welcome to Annunciation School
Annunciation School was founded in 1956 in the building formerly housing St. Mary’s High School. Under the auspices of the Diocese of Stockton and the Cathedral of the Annunciation, the school is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges as well as the Western Catholic Education Association. Annunciation School is a K-8 Catholic parish school that adheres to our stated philosophy with the expectation that our graduates will embody our Student Learning Expectations by graduation. The curriculum is currently transitioning from the California State Standards to the Common Core State Standards, with the infusion of religion instruction. For the past many years, our administration, faculty and staff have been entirely comprised of lay ministers. Our students seem to thrive in this pastoral setting with elevated expectations, as evidenced by their performance at the high school level where the majority fully participate, maintain the work ethic nurtured here, take on leadership roles, and continue through to graduate from college.
If you are interested in learning more about the school, please give us a call. We look forward to hearing from you!
