We had a fun Friday afternoon full of activities. We prepped our copybooks with notes for Parts of the Mass we'll start on Monday in Religion. We shared our inventions from science HW. The students loved sharing their ideas to make all our lives easier - one of my favorites was similar to a Roomba, but it would pick up small toys from the floor. All I could think of was how I would love to walk around and not have to dodge monster trucks and lego bricks in my living room! We "wrapped" up with making Egyptian pyramids. Students had the task of using a few edible supplies to create a pyramid to protect and serve as a final resting place for their Pharaoh. See photos below!
Thank you for all your pineapple donations! We are sending 28 cans to Council of the Churches food pantry!
We will start out next week with a celebration for Veteran's Day. Please join us if you are able at the 8:30 Mass. The students and Veterans will have a reception to follow where Veterans will share stories and students will be able to ask questions. (If your child is in choir - please remind them to bring their folders with them on Monday.)
On Monday/Tuesday we have a science experiment planned. I can usually provide most of the supplies for these, but if you happen to have playdoh or modeling clay at home and could send in a little for your child to use, that would help. Please don't feel the need to go out and buy it, but if you have a package or 2 you wouldn't mind donating, we'll take it! Warning - it will get wet and will probably not be able to come back home.
Next Friday, there will be a paid dress down day. All proceeds will support our upcoming MegaShambuck party on 11/25.
