*** PLEASE ask your child to share with you a sealed SJS envelope with your name & mailing address on front. These went home with youngest and only today.****
October is here and so is daily morning prayer with a decade of the Rosary. Students are welcome to bring in their own personal Rosary to use, or I have some in the classroom for borrowing.
Throughout November, we will have a food collection for those less fortunate in Hanover. In past years, our donations have been donated to God's Meal Barrel or Council of the Churches. 5th grade is in charge of this service project. To prepare, we need to amass a collection of boxes. Anytime from now until Halloween is ok to send in boxes - paper ream boxes are a great size or something similar. By the end of the month, we organize, label, and distribute these to all the classes in the school. You may bring these to your scheduled conference too if you'd like.
Thank you for sending back your conference papers. I will be sending home confirmation slips in your child's assignment books on Monday. These can be taken out and kept for your records.
Heads up: We will need soccer-ball/basketball size pumpkins for a project the last week of October. Please send these in Monday Oct 26 or Tuesday October 27. Each student will need their own. We will start the project they 27th, finish the 28th, display around school the 29th and 30th and send home the 30th. These projects turn out well, but can't stay in a warm building too long or turn mushy! Please do not send them in before Oct 26.
Finally, we had a goodbye party for our classmate Tino this afternoon. He is moving with his family to Virginia and we will miss him very much! We enjoyed a fun afternoon today with snacks, memories, games, laughter, smiles, and lots of hugs and pictures. Tino - You are in our prayers and we will miss you! Good luck with the big move! God Bless You.
