SEAS Prayer Day will take place on Wednesday, April 17th. This is a full day of prayer and devotion to Jesus and our faith.  The students will participate in prayer, a service project for our local community, and attend Benediction.  To help this day run successfully, the Faith Formation committee is asking that our grade help by donating $5.  This money will go toward the purchase of bologna, cheese, bread, and fruit to make sandwiches for a local shelter.  The committee is asking that you send in your donation no later than Friday, April 12th.  Thank you! 

We will be having a working snack in our classroom each day.  Please ensure that your child has a healthy snack and water to drink.  Thank you!

If your child is absent for school for any reason, please contact the nurse's office to report their absence.  In addition, when they return to school, please send in a note stating the reason behind their absence.  Thank you!

In Religion, the students will participate in the Fully Alive program.  In this program, they will explore the dignity of human life, the uniqueness of relationships, and our commitment to God. As part of our Lenten journey, the students will be attending weekly prayer services.  These services will be conducted by fellow classmates and are to serve as a reminder of our promises to Christ.  Our next school Liturgy will take place on ​Thursday, April 4th.  ​We will attend Mass, as a class, on Friday, April 12th.  Please feel free to join us. 

In Health, we will begin to learn about Body Systems.  We will learn about how each system functions and its role on our bodies. 

The Addition and Subtraction of Fractions (Chapter 11) will be our next area of focus in Math.  The students will learn how to add and subtract fractions with like and unlike denominators, how to add and subtract mixed numbers, and how to convert between a mixed number and an improper fraction. 

We will continue our learning journey in Science by focusing on Patterns in Space. (Topic 7).  The students will learn about the Earth's gravitational pull, Earth's movement in space, and about patterns over a period of time. In addition, they will participate in a project-based activity in which they will create a brochure to explain how patterns work for us everyday.

Thank you for all of your support!
