Catholic Schools Week Activities
Thank you to everyone who came out to see our classroom today. It was nice to visit with everyone outside of the regular school day.
Tomorrow we celebrate our community. Students are allowed to wear a sports jersey/college shirt to school with jeans or uniform bottoms. We will also kick off a charity collection drive. Your student will come home with an informational flyer on Monday.
Tuesday we celebrate our students. Parents are invited to come and have lunch with their child(ren). Our lunch is from 12:10-12:30.
Wednesday we celebrate our nation. Students are allowed to wear red, white or blue socks to school.
Thursday we celebrate vocations. Students will need to be in Mass uniform.We look forward to having visitors speak to us about their religious lives.
Friday we celebrate faculty and staff. We have our faculty vs. 8th grade volleyball game starting with the A homerooms at 10 followed by the B homerooms. We also have a noon dismissal. Students who signed in at Open House after Mass today will receive a free dress or can dress in Western attire for the day. All other students can still come in regular Friday spirit dress.
Building Champions breakfast and communication activities
Thanks to our parents for donating their time and the food so that we could have an awesome breakfast!
The students were fired up to start their activities with the 8th graders leading them in discussion and different activities focused on how to be better communicators.
We have read the first three chapters in our new novel and the students are really enjoying the story line. This week we will be focusing on vocabulary and written summaries on what we have read so far. Expect to see your student writing more in reading!
We are continuing our chapter on division. We are exploring the rules of divisibility and will start two digit divisors. Please encourage your student to space out their work and to check their work. Thank you!
We are quickly approaching Lent. We will begin to study the season of Lent so we are prepared to begin our Lenten journey on Ash Wednesday.
