A Note From Mrs. Phillips
Almost there! Almost Christmas! Are you prepared? Is your heart ready to receive the light? The children are!
Come celebrate the season on Thursday at our annual Christmas Concert in the church. What a great way to prepare your heart. Students need to be in Neglia Hall at 6:30 in their mass uniform.
On Wednesday, we will celebrate a special school mass with Bishop Gugliemone. Please be sure your child is in the proper mass uniform.
Next Monday, we get to visit Main Street Ice! We will be taking the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders skating. You are welcome to join us. If you would like to skate, it is $8. If you are chaperoning, but just watching, there is no cost.
The auction committee has asked for our class to provide items, just like last year, for a basket which will be auctioned off. Our theme this year is movies! There will be a note in Tuesday folders with more information. Feel free to send in items at any time this week.
Religion: In religion this week, we will continue to discuss Advent. We are combining our reading lessons with our religion lessons and creating a lapbook based on both Advent and “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever”.
Reading: The class will continue the novel “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever!” this week. The students will have spelling words that are the same from last week. Our test will be Friday, December 15th. STAR homework due this Friday.
Language Arts: The students will work on writing for Advent this week.
Math: This week we will not have another packet. We will continue to practice our 2’s through our 4’s and pick back up after break with our 5’s. Please practice your facts over the holiday break.
Science: In science the students will continue climates around the world. The students are enjoying learning about these more in depth.
