Conference Period: 10:15-10:45 or 1:45 - 2:15
We have finally reached the end of the first nine weeks! It has been a great time for learning, laughing, and thinking! Our behavior is settling down and our study habits are continuing to improve. This nine weeks, we will begin learning about literary genres. As part of that study, the children will be required to read at least nine library books during the nine week grading period. This will be tied in to their AR points as well. A letter and activity sheet will be coming home early next week explaining how this all works together! We will also be learning a little about the court system. This goes along with a story we are reading entitled "The Trial of Cardigan Jones." In addition, we will begin reading Because of Winn Dixie. Our project for this novel is to collect food and supplies for the local animal shelter. More on this at a later date!
We are also looking forward to our traditional fall activities! The Fall Festival is this Saturday, October 28th. I hope to see everyone there! I will be hanging out at the dunking booth from 12:00 to 1:00. Also, we have trick -or-treating with the Kindergarteners on Tuesday, October 31st! We will be handing out treats to them. Then, afterwards, we will retreat to the cafeteria for our Halloween celebration! Thanks, to all of you who sent treats or contributed in some way!
Last, but not least, we have some students to honor! I have begun an incentive program to help the children be more mindful of their behavior during Mass on Thursday. I have entitled it "Mass Angel of the Week." The first week, Chandler Fabre was our Mass Angel. Last week, two students earned this award: Griffin Shearer and Quade Brothers! So, halos off to these students! I am very proud of them for paying attention during Mass; kneeling, praying, and responding respectfully; and standing up straight and tall rather than slouching over the pew in front of them.
Again, thank you for all you do! Our Sacred Heart parents are the backbone of our school! We wouldn't be able to do our jobs half as well if not for your support! I hope each of you and your families enjoy a safe and happy Halloween!
