Middle school students also take Spanish with Mr. Roy, Physical Education with Mr. Redmon, Art with Mrs. Blair, and Computer Technology with Mrs. Carroll. During 8th grade, our students prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation under the guidance of Mr. Tessier, All Saints 7th and 8th grade religion teacher. Our middle school teaching staff meets regularly to coordinate curriculum across various subjects and provides many opportunities for extended learning. Examples include Renaissance Day, Red, White & Blue Election Day, participation in a town hall style meeting during our annual Veteran’s Mass & Reception, and Tom Sawyer Day.
Annual Science Fair
In late January, All Saints middle school students participate in our annual science fair, investigating topics involving physics, behavioral science, botany, medicine/health, biochemistry, chemistry, environmental science, engineering, microbiology, biology, earth and space. Students conduct extensive research and provide both a written and oral review of their selected topic. Winning entries from our science fair advance to compete in the Arlington Diocesan Science Fair. All Saints Catholic School placed first in 2011 and second in 2012 in the diocesan science fair. Students also participate in an annual spelling bee and geography bee.

Cheating will result in an automatic detention and a zero for the work involved. Middle school students who accrue five demerits will serve a one hour detention before school on Wednesday morning beginning at 7:00 a.m. After three detentions during the course of one year, students must meet with the assistant principal. Accumulation of five demerits following the meeting will result in an in-school suspension with the student also receiving a zero for class work, homework and quizzes. Although a zero will not be issued for tests, the student will not receive any credit for tests administered during the period of suspension.
In the next few months, high schools will host their annual Open House events. At the same time, the following high schools, with the exception of Thomas Jefferson and Seton, will also send representatives to All Saints to inform the students about their programs. We hope the following will better assist you in your planning.
Regardless of which high school your child will be attending, every 8th grade student must complete the High School Placement Test Registration Form (see link below) and return it to Mrs. Slovenkay by November 10, 2014.

Please Note: If you attend any of the Open Houses, the admissions director of each school will inform you that your child will need to take the High School Placement Test. You do not need to apply for this test because it is administered in December to our eighth grade students at All Saints. Please note that this test is given to every eighth grade student who attends the Diocese of Arlington schools. However, it is very important that you pick up an application form and complete it if you are interested in any of the above- mentioned schools.
*If your son or daughter is interested in attending this school, please contact Mrs. Slovenkay for additional information.
Please check with each school’s web site to confirm Open House dates and times.
