A Note From Mrs. Phillips

It was great seeing so many brave the rain on Saturday to march with St. Peter’s!  What a beautiful tradition we have.  As we get closer to Easter, we think of tradition and how we celebrate many things.  In our home, the first thing we say on Easter morning is that “H” or “A” word that we cannot say during Lent.  Then we reflect on how our Lenten sacrifices went those forty days as we eat breakfast.  The best part is being able to celebrate this amazing day with our church family as we come to Mass.  Easter baskets and egg hunts, which are always fun, are found after we return from church.  Later in the day, as a family we sit and eat a wonderful meal and count the many blessings we have.  It is these traditions that keep our family close and something for everyone to look forward to as Easter nears.  Through it all, we never lose focus of what Easter is truly about, our redemption.  I wish you and our family the most blessed of Easters.

As always, especially during this Lenten season, I encourage you to visit us for the school Mass on Wednesdays at 8:30am.  We would love to have more parents attend with your children.

In class this week…

Religion: In religion this week, we will discuss St. Joseph and how important he was in Jesus’ life.  We will discuss the rolls our dads play in our lives and how wonderful they are!

Reading: The class will finish “Little House on the Prairie” by Wednesday!  We will all test with the online AR test for the book so the students also receive Feed Your Mind Cafe points.  The rest of this week, we will focus on smaller reading comprehension passages based on Easter.

Math:  The class will test on division on Monday.  We will move into fractions this week!  The class will continue to work in their math groups, as this has proved to be beneficial to all students in the class.

Science: In science the students will finish animal life cycle projects.  Each group is researching a particular species and will present on their life cycle in the form of an Edupuppet.  The class will continue work on pulling important information out of a non-fiction text.  These projects will be emailed to you as the finish!
