Happy SNOW day! I certainly wasn't expecting that! Oh well, having today off means we will have school on Friday. Monday is still a guaranteed day off.
Pardon my newsletter absences these past 2 weeks. Let's call it a combo of CSW, illness, and general life business! It seems as though the students did a great job recording reminders in their assignment books so there wasn't confusion about tests/due dates. As we do progress through the next few months and end of the year, students should continue this trend of being aware (and not surprised by) upcoming expectations and due dates.
Chaperone papers went home last week. They are bright green. If you are interested and have your clearances, please return the slip ASAP so Miss Smith and I can calculate the cost per person of the trip.
We've been busy in the classroom this past week. We've been working on our Research Essays for English class, Plant Brochures for Science, had our final Parts of the Mass Test for Religion. We've also enjoyed another visit with our Seminarian Mr. Vic and had our CSW Spelling Bee Finals! Congrats to Joe for being the runner-up for 4th-6th grades!
This week we will be starting to learn about the Sacraments of Healing in Religion and writing Love Letters for Valentine's Day! We'll have more fun with the Winter Carnival, Valentine's Day, and a visit from Mrs. Kilkelly for the Spiritual Adoption Program. I'll be pushing back all tests/due dates one day as we discussed in class on 2/8.
Monday: (((Today was supposed to be a Music Test. Mrs. Pugliese may either have us do them in the classroom on Wednesday and then return them to her or she may wait until next Monday. I'll let the class know when I know.)))
Wednesday: RDG - WLT
SS Ch 6 Test & Packet Due
Thursday: ENG - Research Essay Due
REL - Prayer to the HS Test
Friday: Spelling Less 17 Test
SCI: Plant Brochure Due
Stay warm today!
God Bless You!
