April 25th Edition – Caring for God’s Creation

CTN is very proud to introduce The Tablet Jr., the newest addition to the diocesan newspaper. The Tablet Jr. is a monthly four-page pullout for elementary school children. The articles and artwork you see are created by the students of diocesan academies, and each month there will be a new theme and a new academy.  

“Caring for God’s Creation” is the theme of this fourth edition.  St. Gregory the Great Catholic Academy in Bellerose, Queens is this month’s academy to showcase its journalistic skills.  Enjoy reading the additional student submissions as well as the Teacher Resources below.  Let us know what you think!
