I hope that you all have had an enjoyable weekend. Either this past weekend or tomorrow evening, your child will be asking you questions about his or her baptism. Then, they will be writing a news story about their baptisms in class this week. I am also asking the students that, if possible, to please take a picture of one of their baptism artifacts (candle, gown, etc) and/or a picture from the Baptism itself to include in the article.
Thank you for sending in the Box Tops to support or school as well as our class in the contest. I am pleased to announce that we won! The 5th graders will be treated to a popcorn, pizza, and movie party as well as a dress down day! Our school collected 7200 Box Tops; please keep clipping and saving them for the spring contest.
Tuesday, Halloween will be an orange/black themed dress down day (if the students do not have any Halloween themed clothes, it is also considered a regular, free dress down day); the students should bring their costumes to school (please no, weapons). The 5th graders do not participate in the parade, but are welcome to participate in the Student Council's 5th-8th grade costume contest. After recess, the students will change into their costumes, and we will watch the parade at 1:30 PM. After the parade, we will proceed to the gym for the contest. Following the contest, we will have our class party in the 5th grade classroom. The sign up sheet for the part is here.
School is closed on Wednesday for the Feast of All Saints, a Holy Day of Obligation. Mass at St. Ignatius will be on Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM and on Wednesday at 7:00 AM, 9:00 AM, & 7:00 PM. St. John's also has Mass on Tuesday at 5:30 PM and on Wednesday at 8:00 AM and 12:00 PM.
We will be attending Mass on Thursday for the Feast of All Souls.
On Friday, the students have elective. We will also be attending First Friday Mass; at the conclusion of the liturgy, we will recognize the Disciples of the Month (empathy). The second grade will also present their Parade of Saints.
