The snow just won't leave us alone! An early dismissal and delay put a crimp in our plans. I'm just thankful we didn't get any more snow days to make up!
We had a nice Ash Wednesday prayer service with Deacon Tom as our presider. We had a Lenten lesson and discussed 3 important practices: increased prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. We put our Lenten sacrifices on flower petals (Spring anyone?) and also included acts of kindness we are offering up. We also had Valentine's day fun writing LOVE letters - you should have heard the moans and groans when I told the class that! Please ask your child for details. The class then enjoyed sharing their own valentines and munching on treats during a Charlie Brown Valentine's Day. Students also received information about their February book report and a special [optional] science assignment.
Fr. Ryan surprised us with a visit this morning. He was peeking at our January shoe box book reports in the hallway and said how "cool" he thought they were. He said they were his favorite type of projects when he was in school. He came in the classroom when we were writing our "love letters" and enjoyed listening to a few. Father then spoke to the class about Lenten sacrifices and how they can bring us closer in our relationship to God.
Because we are in between Ancient Civilizations in SS, we'll be spending a few days working on an in-school President's Day project. Since we are in school on the holiday this year, we'll learn about them too! (And since we've been keeping up with the Presidential hopefuls too.)
Also, the grade portal is updated as of 2/8. Only 2 weeks left in the trimester.
