Dear 5th Grade Families,
I hope that you all are having an enjoyable weekend. I have included a schedule of events for this week. In addition, we will take time this week to review the results of the religion, reading, and language final exams, answer any student questions, and finish watching the movie Tuck Everlasting so that we can compare and contrast the book and film.
We made cards for KB (and kindergarten siblings in KA) on Thursday; I ask that any student who did not finish and took the cards home to please bring them in on Tuesday. Anyone who still has a copy of Tuck Everlasting should also bring that in on Tuesday.
The summer reading and math assignments can be found on the Back to School page of the school website under Current Families. The supply list will be posted soon as we are working on a few details. 6th grade also must have a physical exam form completed by your child's pediatrician, and a copy of that form is on the Back to School page as well.
At the closing liturgy, we will be recognizing the disciples of the month for May and June, the boy and girl with the highest academic average, and the boy and girl who put forth a consistent effort during the entire course of the school year.
The two disciples of the month for May will be recognized for being poor in spirit which means to be generous, helpful, and considerate of the needs of others. June's award is for the virtue of chastity which means using good manners, appropriate language, and having a positive attitude.
If anything changes, I will send out an addendum email during the week; I will also send one last newsletter on Friday with any additional information that I have to wrap up the school year. I am looking forward to a fantastic last week of school with the 5th grade; have a great week!

June 8th Field Trip Information:
For the June 8th trip, we will depart the Yardley Train station on the 8:53 AM (#3421) train. If you are not chaperoning, I will be at the station by 7:45 AM, and you may drop your child off at the shelter on the Reading Avenue side. If you are chaperoning, parking is 1.00 (quarters only); I recommend parking on the opposite side of the station by the VFW/Yardley Kids Academy. Please be at the station by 8:25 AM.
We will arrive at Suburban Station at 10:00 PM We will then walk from Suburban Station to the Cathedral Basilica, which is about 1/2 of a mile, for a 10:30 AM tour. After the guided tour, we will walk to ReadingTerminal Market (about 1 mile) for lunch. We have a room reserved from 12:00 PM-1:00 PM to guarantee seating since the market is very busy at lunch time. After lunch, (we need to be out of the room by 1:00 PM), the students can shop or have dessert. We will head to Jefferson Station (Market East Station which is below the terminal market) where we will catch the 2:10 PM train (#3421) to Yardley which will arrive at 3:05 PM. If you are not chaperoning, again, you can pick up at the station where I will wait until everyone is picked up. The students need to bring money for lunch and may bring a camera (optional). If bringing a bag, I suggest no bigger than a small draw-string bag (like the one received at DARE graduation). The dress is summer uniform with sneakers for walking.
