On Friday, we celebrated with the First Graders the 100th Day of School with loads of fun Math activities looking at all the patterns and combinations we could conjure up to make it to 100. We even created Word Problem Puppet Shows. We will continue celebrating with the 101st Day of School on Monday because we planned more activities than we had time for. We will also be celebrating Groundhog Day on Monday.
Sacrament of Reconciliation: Mrs. Donna Tomasini is out for a while due to health concerns. Please pray for her. There will be no First Communion Meeting on Wednesday.
Please send in new pencils. Our classroom is out. Thank you!
