Albany-- This is national Catholic Schools week. St. Teresa's Catholic School is celebrating with academic events all week to showcase their students.

St. Teresa Catholic School's 8th graders are setting up their science fair projects for competition.

Kendra Berry's project is on beach errosion. Berry said, "Which types of enviornment would be easier and harder compared to the waves, how the soil would react." Allyssa Pellegrin's science fair project researched war prisoners and the Geneva Convention rules. Pellegrin said "It wasn't correct because the research I conducted revealed numerous enemies denied."

St. Teresa's is proudly showing their students skills and handiwork, as part of National Catholic Schools week.

Principal Grace Ledwitch said "We are able to teach in a family filled enviornment, teaching Christian values and morals."

Third grader Mark Ciancosi gives his reading report on Charles Dickens A Tale of Two Cities.
