Dear 4A Families,
Holy Week has arrived. Much of our focus this week will be related to Holy Week events and study. During our Mass on Wednesday we will bless the items we have been collecting for our outreach. Thank you for your donations to help those less fortunate!
Thank you for sending in items for this collection by Wednesday at the latest:
- Monetary donations for Uganda
- For St. Vincent de Paul Society: socks, blankets.
On Thursday we will meet with our Faith Families to celebrate Holy Thursday together. On Friday at 11:00 we will gather in the church for The Stations of the Cross. We will be dismissing in silence following both the Holy Thursday Faith Family event and the Stations of the Cross. We will also dismiss in silence at the end of the day.. Thank you for helping support this action of respect as you pick up your children. Perfect uniform is required on Wednesday and Friday this week.
Oral Biography Presentations: We got off to a wonderful start with our first six presentations last week. The students did an amanzing job speaking in front of the class and sharing thier information with expression and creativity. We are all looking forward to the rest of the presentations this week. Thank you all for the hard work you put in at home preparing for this special project.
Reminder: The Bingo Bash is on Friday, April 13th from 6-8:00 pm here at school. Cost is $30. Flyers have been sent home and forms are available to download via the eFc. If you purchased tickets through the online auction, please fill out a permission slip form and indicate that you paid online; otherwise all participants will be charged through FACTS. We are looking forward to a great time with the kids!!
Flat Stanley: This week the 4th graders will create their own flat person that will be the inspiration for a Flat Stanley Journal project. Many students like to take their flat people with them on adventures during spring break, so we will have them ready to go before they leave. The actual journals for wriitng the final drafts will not come home until April 13th. Students are encouraged to keep notes and fun facts about the places they visit be it in Seattle or beyond. Picking up brochures, or historical facts about the places visited can be helpful when wriitng journals. For now, take advantage of fun picture opportunities over the break. Full project directions will come home with the journals on the 13th. The students will complete their first jouranl entry at school. Our plan is to send home the laminated flat people this Thursday.
- There is no spelling test this week.
- There will be a division math review sheet sent home on Tuesday that is to be completed and turned in by Thursday. The students will have the long division test on Thursday.
