Dear Parents,

This will be my newsletter for the week, as I wanted to remind you of upcoming events.  Tomorrow  will be the last day for the food drive.  If you would like to donate to St. Vincent de Paul’s food drive, please send the items in tomorrow with your child.  Thank you for your generosity. 

Tomorrow is also our Christmas program.  The students have been practicing for their performance tomorrow night.  Please have your child here in the classroom by 6:45.  The program will start at 7:00.  Students should wear nice clothes (no jeans please).  The children did such an amazing job singing at the reading volunteer party.  I look forward to the program Wednesday night!

Our Virtues in Practice homework assignment is  due on Thursday.  I will attach another copy, in case your other copy was misplaced.  We will gather in communities on Friday after mass to talk about patience

After our Christmas break, school resumes on Tuesday, January 2, 2018!  For the month of January, we are focusing on the virtue of Fidelity (keeping promises).  We will also learn about Saint Cecilia. 

                No homework packet over the holidays. Students are encouraged to read over the break (they are encouraged to bring books home  from my classroom).  We will go to library on Thursday, so please make sure your child brings back his/her book by then.  Thank you!


Upcoming events:

December 16 – January 1:    Christmas break

January 2:  School resumes

January 15:  No School (Martin Luther King Jr. Day)

January 15 – February 9:  MAP testing (Hoping each child shows growth from the beginning of the year!)


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

God bless you!

Hail and blessed

(Say 15 times each day until Christmas)

Hail and blessed be the hour and the moment in which the Son of God was born of the most pureVirgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold.  In that hour, vouchsafe, O my God, to hear my prayer and grant my desires through the merits of our Savior Jesus Christ and of his Blessed Mother.
