We have a busy week ahead of us this week!
On Tuesday, it is Halloween! Please make sure your child comes to school in costume because we are doing a costume parade at 9am throughout the school. Our class will also be having a fun, afternoon Halloween party. It will start at 2nd nutrition break and continue until about 2:45. If you have signed up to bring anything, you may drop it off at anytime! You are also welcome to stay and have fun with us :)
On Wednesday, our class and 1-2W are putting on the All Saint's Day Liturgy at St.Mary's. Everyone is welcome to come and watch! It will start at 8:45am.
On Thursday, it is our Bright Lights celebration at St. Mary's at 9am.
On Friday, it is our very first "Sharpen the Saw Friday's". These will occur once a month and they will focus on nurturing the mind, body, spirit, and community. This is school-wide and is a great opportunity for the students to interact with others and learn at the same time. We are very excited! Please let me know if you'd be interested in helping out in a classroom on this day!
I think that's it for this week! Please continue to read with your children, and help them practice their spelling words.
Thanks for everything you do!!!
Ms. Caputo :)
I have introduced something new into the classroom today.
Spelling check-ins, and spelling check-ups.
Every Monday of full weeks, the students will get a new list of sight words. They will try their best to spell them on Monday, work with them throughout the week, and have a check-up on Friday.
These are not necessarily tests, but are more for practice, exposure, and a benchmark.
The students will put their list in their agendas for the week, so make sure you ask them about the words!
Here you will find information about the upcoming month!
