OLL Irma Tejeda In Memoriam

The parish community of Our Lady of the Lakes is grateful to Almighty God for having bestowed upon us the gift of having had Mrs. Irma Tejeda as a teacher at our school from its founding to the present. As we remember her with loving affection, we ask the Lord to kindly reward her for the blessings she brought us.

Children were a gift to her. She was God’s gift to us. May eternal rest be granted unto her and perpetual light shine upon her. She will be very dearly missed.

Teacher at Our Lady of the Lakes School 1987 - 2018.

Red Ribbon Week: "Life is your Journey! Travel Drug Free!

In conjunction with our Red Ribbon Week theme: “Life is your Journey! Travel Drug Free”, students in first through eighth grade participated in a paper airplane challenge in their STREAM classes. The students learned about the forces of flight and completed the challenge. The complexity of the lesson changed depending on the grade level. First grade constructed and decorated a paper airplane. Then they got to throw it and measure the distance it flew. Second and third grades designed a blueprint of their airplane and then constructed their planes. They then got four trial throws where they measured the distances and recorded the distances down in feet and inches. They then answered questions in reflection of how the challenge went.

Fourth through eighth grades collaborated with a team to make three different types of air planes, hypothesized which would work the best and then they measured the distance thrown of all three. They concluded if their hypothesis was correct or not and made improvements and adjustments to their planes, if needed. If adjustments were done they then threw and recorded them again. They then completed a data form, plotted the distances on a graph and worked out the mean, median and mode of the flights. Everyone enjoyed learning about how flight works in this hands-on way.
