Fifth Grade News for the week of December 2nd-6th

A Word From Miss Boron Since I am writing this before the Thanksgiving holiday, I would like to begin by sharing my feelings of very deep appreciation to each and every parent of my fifth and sixth grade students.  You have been supportive and very helpful.  I know that you are dedicated to your child’s […]

Week of November 25th-November 29th

Hello, Parents, I know that I am writing this a bit early in the week, however, when there are only two days to plan lessons for, it surely is much easier. The children are looking forward to Thanksgiving, and when we return, it is time to celebrate the Advent season. My class will be presenting […]

Week of November 18th-November 22nd

Hello, Parents, On this rainy (but a bit warmer) Friday, I am thinking about all of the different activities that signify this busy time of the year. The children are, at this very minute, practicing with their Strength and Movement teachers for their upcoming Christmas performance. I am collecting permission slips for our annual trip […]

November 11th-15th

Dear Parents and Guardians, Our new week of school will begin with our celebrating veterans by attending the parade on Monday.

However, Tuesday […]

On November 1st, All Saints Day, Parent-Teacher Conferences […]

In our fifth grade Religion class, we have been talking about ways that we worship; speaking to the Mother of Jesus with […]

Week of October 14th-October 18th

Hello Parents, Well…I am sitting here a wee bit jealous that you will get to enjoy a nice long weekend, assuming you will have Columbus Day as a holiday. As you know, the teachers have a diocesan workshop for two days, so your children will not be returning to school until October 16th. I have […]

October 7th-October 11th

Dear Parents, I hope you are enjoying this first week of October and the promised cooler temperatures that we are supposed to have this coming weekend. We had our annual “Pet Blessing” this afternoon, and clearly, the children enjoyed seeing their furry family members sprinkled with holy water with special prayers said just for them. […]
