Weekly message – February 12-16
We will celebrate Valentine Day on February 13th along with Mardi Gras, as Ash Wednesday falls on Valentine Day this year. Students should bring a valentine for the whole class and if anyone would like to send a cookie or cupcake treat instead of a paper Valentine that would be great.
Friday is our field trip to the state capitol.
The Catholic Schools Raffle sponsored by Catholic United Financial begins today. Yesterday, every student brought their raffle tickets home along with a letter explaining what needs to be done. Please remember you MUST return unsold raffle tickets.
We have begun Adoration in our new school chapel. Our time is Wednesdays 12:15-12:30.
Fifth grade students are expected to have snow pants and boots for recess during the winter months.
PLEASE, NO NUTS IN THE CLASSROOM INCLUDING PEANUT BUTTER. THANK YOU.
Educate is the electronic tool we use here at school to keep track of your child’s grades. Most of you have already used it when you went to the web site at the end of each trimester to check your child’s progress. Beginning in 5th grade you can access your child’s grade book page at any time to see how they are doing.
A school/church tab has been added to the web page to make it easier for you to check out the events outside the classroom.
The following items are a general outline of our week in each subject. Please check your child’s assignment notebook every day to know the specific work for that day and when homework for that day is due.
