Another 5 down! Can you believe we are 2 weeks away from the last day of school?
The 5th grade did a nice job of arranging the Living Rosary for the elementary school on Thursday. In our study of the Rosary, it was nice to put all of our prayers to work to help us learn. Despite a few technical difficulties, we had a reverent and nice time.
Today we got our yearbooks. It is so fun to look back at all our memories from this school year. The students had time to sign each others' books and enjoy all the wonderful pictures.
As an end of year privilege, 5th graders have been allowed to write in blue or black pen for the past week. They can do this for any subject except math class. Also, for a fun journal entry, they designed new seating charts for our classroom. I picked out about half of them that were feasible and we are enjoying trying out our first and second arrangements this week. Perhaps we'll be able to try out one more before the end of next week.
Finally, since we are coming soon to a close on this school year, I would like to ask if each parent could reply in email or a note to school by May 26th about comments, thoughts, or suggestions about your child's 5th grade year. Each year that I've been here at St. Joe's I've tried to modify, adjust, or just plain change things that have gone well or not as smoothly as I anticipated. For example, you could tell me about your child's favorite subject and why, a topic we studied that was interesting or one that could be 'jazzed' up, or perhaps a favorite book report project. Thank you for your feedback.
