What a wonderful and energetic Catholic Schools Week we had! Thank you for all the love you gave to all the teachers and me on Wednesday! It is all so worth it because your children make my heart pitter-patter! 🙂
Please come to the gym on Wednesday, February 4, for the State of the School Address. There is very important information regarding next year!
Our great school is having an Open House on Sunday, February 9, 2020 from 2-4 pm. We are having a few competitions if you come. First, we are having a cookie making contest. We are also going to have an interactive game throughout the school asking questions of the classroom teachers or looking in each classroom for answers. It should be fun! We would love to have you and, especially, if you bring a friend who might be thinking of the school for a family member!
For social studies, we are half way done with writing five-sentence
paragraphs about ourselves. Next: students are to interview each of their parents. They will be writing an essay on at least one of you in a week or two. The students’ questions will be going home in their Friday Folder. Students are to interview you and write the answers in the blanks, not you! They are to find the time to talk with you sometime in the next week. Thank you for your support on this!
