It was nice seeing many of you at the Open House on Sunday. We have a busy and fun week ahead with many special events that will help us celebrate our wonderful school, parish and community. The last part of the newsletter will review the events of the week and include special reminders for 4th grade in particular.
If you have signed up to take a group of students to deliver certificates on Tuesday, you should have received an email from me on Sunday afternoon about the day and your responsibilities. I will send out a full overview via on Monday night as well. Thank you so much! Remember, Tuesday is a perfect uniform day. All students should have a red sweatshirt or sweater for deliveries. Thank you.
Homework: Homework will be light this week. There will not be a spelling test. The students do have a Spanish test on Tuesday. They should all have the study cards in their filers. Students should keep up with their math fact practice (Xtramath). There may be some math work during the week if tasks are not completed at school.
Because of the light homework this week, students might want to get started on their Valentine Box Project that is due no later than Wednesday, February 13th. Hard copies of the directions will be in your child’s filer on Wednesday, and you will also be able to access them on our website in the tabs above. This is a fun project—which includes design, math and engineering,—as well as time management. Be creative! We encourage creative reuse of items you already have— Catholic Schools Week Schedule:

We will begin the day with the spelling bee. Congratulations to our class finalists, Mariella Guerra and Selene Quintero-Rodriguez. The class runner up is Corbin Ho. It was a very tight race, involving many rounds! Congrats to all and good luck to our 4A reps! This is a perfect uniform day. We celebrate our academic excellence.
