A whirlwind Catholic Schools Week has come to a close! We had lots of fun with so many planned activities, plus a few classroom surprises! Be sure to ask your child what their favorite parts of the week were, but I know the parent lunch, the gym games, and the skating party were at the top of the list. We enjoyed a great open house today along with a WONDERFUL 5th Grade Spelling Bee! So many students worked hard and spelled so well that it took a bit longer than I expected! Big huge congrats to our "Final 4" that lasted quite a while - Makayla, Liam, Aden, and Gracie. I'm really proud of all their hard work and determination.
Our minion door was so much fun. We added our donations this afternoon and 5th grade collected $69.44! The Elementary School collected over $350! Even though we were not 1st, I have a small treat for the class next week for our efforts!
At mass, I was in and out for various reasons and despite our limited practice time, everything ran very smoothly! We even all worked together to set up for the mass and take down and put sacramentals away. (Ms. Keffer usually does this for us herself, but she is out on medical leave.) Finally, the students had fun this afternoon with our "Minion Movie Theatre" complete with popcorn! What a great week!
If you took a family photo yesterday at the parent lunch, your child is coming home with that today.
Next week, we'll be resuming our normal studies, but also infused with Chinese New Year and President's Day lessons as well as some Valentine's Day fun. If your child would like to make valentines for the class, please have one for each student and send them in on Friday, we have 17 classmates.
