December 10 – 14, 2018

Happy Monday! I hope that everyone had a lovely weekend. Here are some highlights for our upcoming week!

Scholastic News has been ordered! I am so excited to finally get started on them and for your children to get to experience the fantastic learning opportunities that they will provide.

Our Christmas concert is fast approaching! The concert is Thursday, December 13 at 7:00PM. Students should arrive at 6:30 PM. Students are encouraged to dress as Angels. White or light colored clothing (i.e. tan, grey, white, khaki) is preferable. Any questions, please contact Mrs. Burke.

In Religion, we are working on Chapter 4 as well as talking about the season of Advent. Fr. Drummond is also continuing to teach our class about the Latin Mass on Fridays after Mass.

In Social Studies, we are working on Chapter 2 (yes, still). We are going to start the Civil War this week. We are also learning a little bit about George H.W. Bush through a reading packet that I found. I was pleasantly surprised with how interested the class was last week when we were talking about him.

In Math, we are working on Chapter 3 which is all about subtraction! We will be subtracting regular numbers as well as dollar amounts and estimate differences at times. We may be finishing this chapter this week. If not, then early next week and we will review addition, subtraction, and place value in days leading into Christmas vacation.

We are working on a new Science unit – Electricity! We have some fun labs coming up with Miss Cortright that the class will really enjoy!

Our Reading Day has been rescheduled! We are going to have a day of reading activities on Thursday, December 20. This is the second to last day before our Christmas vacation. Again, students may come to school in pajamas or other comfortable clothes. Students are also invited to bring books to read. We will do some reading activities as well as free time to read and explore different books.

In our Writing, we are going to work on our Personal Yearbooks. We will be writing about some of the highlights from the month of October as well as November. We are continuing to improve our grammar through sentence structure and punctuation.

We have been working through Spelling words every week and have been doing a great job on our end of week tests. I am so proud of the progress that the students are making!
