We have some events coming up that I would like you to put on your calendar. There is a required parent meeting for First Eucharist on Tuesday April 25th at 6:00 PM. It will be held in the 5th grade classroom. One parent needs to attend this meeting if your child will be receiving their First Eucharist in May. There is also a required family First Eucharist Retreat on Sunday May 7th from 1:00 to 4:00 PM. This event will begin in the gym of the school.
There are 2 scheduled field trips that will require the help of parent chaperones. The first field trip is a 10:00 AM performance of Junie B. Jones at the Everett Civic Auditorium on Tuesday May 16th. We are attending with the 1st grade class. This will be a half day trip and we will return by 12:00 PM for lunch. The second field trip will be an all-day event. We will be going to the St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank in Seattle to volunteer. We will be there from 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM on Thursday June 1st to serve food. There will be a lunch break in the middle of our service. This is a great opportunity for us to help some of our neighbors in need. This field trip is with the 3rd grade class. If you are able to help with either trip please let me know.
We are finishing Chapter 8 in math which covers data and graphs. We are coming to the review and will be doing some practice work to prepare everyone for the test. We are beginning the mad minute subtraction facts. All students should be practicing math facts at home. They may bring the addition and subtraction flash cards home if they need to practice.
We continue to work on our ABC books. A few students need to finish their rough drafts so they can begin the final copy after Easter Break.
We have finished our study of simple machines with an assessment. The students did very well on this test. We have begun the study of sound and light.
Our religion studies continue to prepare us for First Communion. We have begun studying the Mass and our participation in it. We will be reviewing the prayers and our responses.
Thank you for all you do for your student.
