Weekly Update

eduardoA big congratulations to our September Student of the Month, Eduardo!


A few notable moments last week:

  • We took our first science test
  • We had Blessing of the Pets on Friday

What we’ve been working on:

  • Religion: how the Church began
  • Math: rounding to the nearest ten
  • Language Arts: compound sentences
  • Reading: understanding story characters and story message
  • Spelling/Phonics: long a and long e
  • Social Studies: geographic features, landforms, and climates
  • Science: how plants grow

Looking Ahead:

Progress Reports were due today. If you haven’t already done so, please visit Gradelink, print your child’s grades out, sign the printout, and return it to me by tomorrow. If you are having printer issues, please write out the grades on a piece of paper and sign the paper.

We will be attending Rosary this Thursday at 9:00 AM with our school families. Please join us if you can! The children will be sitting with their school families, but you can sit on the sides or behind the school families.

One of our beloved former teachers, Mrs. Ann Sheehan, passed away. There will be a funeral service for her. While the children never had her as their classroom teacher, they did know her because she used to substitute teach them. If you would like your child to attend the rosary and funeral this Friday, please send me an e-mail by Wednesday. In your e-mail, please indicate whether you will be picking your child up or if you would like your child to sit with the students and teachers attending.

IOWA Assessments Testing will take place next week. For those of you who do not know what this is, it is our yearly standardized test. Please send your child to school well-rested and having had a good breakfast each day.
