Disciples of Christ


It was great to meet with you at conferences. During the coming weeks, I will be sitting with the students individually to set goals based on classroom assessments and MAP scores.

Please remember to have your student here at 7:40 for AM safety patrol. General arrival time starts at 7:45 and we need to be signed in, geared up, and on duty by then. Thank you so much for you efforts; I know how hectic mornings can be.

We will test next week on chapter 5 in social studies. The students created a matrix chart of the explorers, read and took notes from the text, played a game using the chart, and we will play a jeopardy game in preparation for the test on Tuesday.

Today we tested on the Verse from Liturgy of the Hours and The Jesus Prayer. Next, we will test on Prayer for the Faithful Departed and the Morning Offering on November 16th.

Have a wonderful weekend.
