Ms. Egan’s Newsletter 12/10

Hello Middle School Parents,

I had a great week of conferences with all of you! Please continue to encourage and support your students so they continue to succeed.

In language arts 7/8, we are continuing with Of Mice and Men, and will into next week as well. In Language Arts 5/6, we are continuing with Bud, Not Buddy. All students are working on science fair research paper writing in Language Arts lab with Mr. Molina.

In social studies, 5/6 learned about ancient Egyptian Pharaohs this past week and will continue with the Pyramids next week. In US History, we are continuing with the Articles of Confederation.

Below is a message from the school about a great service opportunity:

Dear 7th & 8th Grade Parents,

The Knights of Columbus help the school (and parish) so much. They throw a wonderful Christmas party for families in our parish that are less fortunate than we are. This is such a great experience for our children. Our eighth graders helped last year, and they had so much fun. I am hoping that most students will participate. Giving back, especially at Christmas, is so important.

Students will be responsible for assembling the gift bags on Friday, 12/15, and to assist with the party on Saturday, 12/16.

I encourage you to sign up your child for both days. Service hours will be awarded for this activity.

We are also looking for parent volunteers to supervise and assist the students. Parent service hours will be awarded.

You can sign your child and/or yourself up here.


Christmas pageant practice will take place in the afternoon on Monday 12/11, Wednesday 12/13, and Monday 12/18.

All students will have STAR testing for reading on Thursday 12/14 during Language Arts lab after recess. Please make sure students get a good night’s sleep, breakfast, and have a healthy snack.

Tuesday 12/12 is also Our Lady of Guadelupe. The 6th grade will have a performance and rosary in the church at 9:15am.

The Christmas pageant performance will take place at 10am on Wednesday, 12/20. This is also our last day before the break and is an early dismissal.
