Happy second week of Advent. I hope you all had a nice weekend. We have a busy week ahead.
Outreach: Wednesday at Mass we will bless all the items the students have been bringing in as part of our Advent Outreach. We still have lots of room in our bins for warm items and food for the food bank and donations for our toy/coat drive. Thank you so much for your generosity. All donations need to be to school by this Wednesday the 13th.
This Thursday the 14th is the big Christmas Program. Students should come dressed in their “Sunday best”—holiday wear. All students should have their songs memorized for the program. Copies of the songs are in your child’s filer and you can access them online: What Star is This? here and Point of Grace-One King hereThank you for practicing with your child as needed.
Students should come up to the classroom Thursday night no later than 6:15. Please do not send your children into the school before 6:00 as there is no supervision until 6:00. If you come earlier to get a seat, please keep your children with you until 6:00. Thank you!
Outreach: Thursday we will have a special prayer service to bless all the items the students have been bringing in as part of our Advent Outreach. We still have lots of room in our bins for warm items and food for the food bank. Thank you so much for your generosity. All donations need to be to school by this Thursday the 15th.
- Toys, art supplies and new coats for the children of migrant farm workers
- Monetary donations for Uganda

Prayer Partners: Hopefully, all students are finishing up their handmade cards for their prayer partners. All cards should be brought to school no later than this Friday the 15th. We will exchange them at our Faith Family meeting next week. Make sure the cards are neatly and thoughtfully completed and nicely decorated. Thank you.
Reading: The Charlotte’s Web Quote Posters are due this Thursday the 14th. The students also have a yellow study sheet for the Charlotte’s Web vocabulary test in their filer. This test is on Tuesday. The study sheet was passed out last week. We have spent a good amount of time practicing at school so they should know the words pretty well. The test is matching.
Spelling: Lists for lesson 12 were sent home last Friday. This test will be this Friday as usual.
Math: We are wrapping up our chapter. The test will be on Wednesday, and a practice test will come home on Tuesday night for homework.
Social Studies: The SE State test will take place next Monday the 18th. If you will not be here next week students will need to take the test on Friday. Please let me know. Our class work is focusing on the early sea explorers, then we will move on to Lewis and Clark!
Science: Last week the students interacted with different forms of light energy. They looked at how light is refracted, reflected and absorbed. They also saw white light separate into colors with prisms. This week we are continuing to look at different types of energy. We will be discussing sound energy. We will look at the different ways sound waves move and travel. We also will be looking at vibrations and how they help us hear
We are still in need of glass jelly jars for our special project. Please send them in by Tuesday if you have any! Thank you.
Corrected Papers: Check your child’s filer throughout the week for corrected papers and please keep the filers cleared out. Thank you!
Please return signed report card envelopes by the end of the week. Keep the report card. Thank you. Have a great week everyone.
