Mrs. Renth

My name is Kathy Renth.  I grew up on a dairy farm in nearby Albers, Illinois and  attended Albers Elementary, Mater Dei High School, Kaskaskia College, and SIU-E. I am married and am the mother of 4 daughters. My daughters are all proud graduates of HCS!  I am also the grandmother of 7 grandsons who keep my heart and hands full!

This is my 35th year teaching and my 28th year at Holy Childhood. I currently teach 5th-8th grade social studies and  5th-7th grade religion.  Needless to say, Holy Childhood is very close to my heart!

I have instructed the fifth graders to keep their religion tests and notes to use for their unit tests.

We will be covering the mysteries of the Rosary throughout the month of October.  We will begin this coverage by studying the Joyful mysteries.  We will discuss each mystery, find the Biblical references to the mystery when possible, and make visual representations of the mystery.  There will be a written test over a set of mysteries each week beginning on Thursday, October 4th with the Joyful mysteries.  The students will be asked to write down the mystery and the meaning of the mystery.

We will also begin work on our Living Saint Museum which is held in early November.  This week we will be researching saints to choose which saint the student would like to write about and portray in our museum.  More information on the project will be sent home next week.
