I can hardly believe we are already starting another year! I pray you and your families are truly blessed in the new year and I hope you all know what a blessing you are to each us here at St. James. This year may we all take time to look for the good in one another and find a deeper joy within our own lives. Today I’ve included several inspirational quotes from some of my favorite authors.
"You’ll never get bored when you try something new. There’s really no limit to what you can do.
"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream."
"Every moment is a fresh beginning."
Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40 NIV

Mr. Garcia's 5th-grade class has begun studying systems in science during the month of January. A system is a group of interacting or interrelated entities that form a unified whole. His students have worked hard to create the world's ecosystems this week. Each student created an ecosystem including biotic and abiotic elements. Biotic components are the living things that shape an ecosystem and the abiotic factors are the non-living parts of the environment that can often have a major influence on living organisms. In the weeks to come, students will be presenting their ecosystem to the lower grades. The entire school will have the pleasure of learning about ecosystems from these wonderful projects.
