After a late start to the week, we did what we could this week. A few things were rescheduled, but all in all, we made it. The Greek projects and book report shoe boxes look great! The students told me they really enjoyed working on them and sharing them with their classmates too!
We are all ready for CSW to start on Sunday. Opening Liturgy is Sunday at 9:00 with the Education Fair to follow. I'll have samples of student work for you to peruse. Please stop by if you can. We have lots of fun activities planned through the week. Check out the yellow brochure or school website for daily events. 5th grade is also planning the closing liturgy for next Friday.
For the parent lunch on Thursday: You must send in a signed note by Wednesday morning if you plan to take your child home with you Thursday after the lunch is over. If this is not at school and handed in by Wednesday morning, your student will ride the bus back to the elementary school for the afternoon. At this point, I've only received one note.
Thank you for your quick replies about wanting to be a chaperone for the trip in April. If you have NEVER held clearances to volunteer at school or athletics, I can get you directions on how to do so. Most others should find the "update" directions on the link in my email a few days ago.
Also, if you replied that you could help out with the workbooks, your child is coming home with a bag today. The students are VERY excited to get these in their desks! Thank you so much for your help!
Wednesday: Math Ch 5 Test
Thursday: Prayer to St. Francis Test
(Yes, this is a prayer test change from the list I provided at the start of the year.)
Friday: Spelling Bee
(This will not be a test grade - but a CW grade. Students will show active participation and effort to earn this grade - not necessarily memorizing/learning every word on the list.)
If you have spare grocery store ads from the weekend paper you aren't using, we can use them for a project this coming week. Giant, Weis, etc. ads would be great!
Have a great weekend!
