Congratulations to Meredith who was recognized last week as our Disciple of the Month for September. The virtue for October is empathy. This week, we will be changing seats and classroom jobs for October. We will also be finishing up our projects for Edward Tulane and starting the book Matilda by Roald Dahl. I will also work on grading all that I have to date and updating portfolios. It is good to have a full week!
Thank you all again for a great field trip this past Thursday; I look forward to the June field trip! I should hopefully have the June 11th date confirmed this week.
This week we will be previewing the Book Fair on Monday, and we will be shopping on Thursday. The full schedule can be found here. The Book Fair will also be open for family shopping on Tuesday evening from 6:00 PM-8:00 PM. Because of the time of the Book Fair preview, I am moving the social studies test to Thursday (from Wednesday) to make sure we have enough time.
Wednesday is DARE class, and we will also be praying the Rosary with the kindergarten class this week and on 10/18 and 10/25. The students may bring their own Rosaries; I also have plenty in the classroom as well.
