Dear Parents and Students:
May is the month of our Blessed Mother, Mary. During this month we remember that Mary is Jesus’ mother and our mother too. We will pray the rosary together this month, so please if your child wishes to bring in his/her personal rosary, he/she may do so. I also have enough rosaries in class for everyone.
We would like to say congratulations to our third grade students as they will be preparing to celebrate the sacrament of the Eucharist for the first time, this month. What a special day in the furthering of their sacramental life.
We will continue to work diligently this month as we will begin our final stretch of the school year. We still have much work to do. Please speak to your children about staying focused, and doing their best work this month. We will continue to have tests, quizzes, and homework this month.
We have begun our novel study of The Cricket in Times Square by George Selden. The children will be interacting with the book through questions, character analysis, word study, etc. All work will be done in class and will be kept in the Literature Binders. We will have regular reading and vocabulary tests to go along with the book. If your child is not keeping up with the reading, I will let you know and he/she will have to read at home. I would like the children to read with us in class and to avoid sending too much of it home. We will do some small craft projects as well. Please ask your child about the book and what they are reading. This will keep the chapters fresh. Thanks for your support.
Please check back for more happenings in May that will be posted soon.
