Prayer Day will take place on Wednesday, April 12th.  Our class will partake in Adoration, a Community Service Project, the Stations of the Cross, and Benediction.  It will be a very busy, but spiritually filled day for all of us.  If you have not done so already, please forward a $5 donation so that we may successfully partake in our Community Service Project.  We will be making sandwiches for some of the local shelters and soup kitchens in the area.  Your donations will be used to purchase the supplies we need to make these sandwiches.  We have already begun by decorating paper bags for our sandwiches.  In addition, if you are available, we are looking for some parent volunteers to help us during the day.  Please contact the office if you are able to donate your time and talent. Thank you for your support!

We love to celebrate birthdays in our class!  Please keep in mind that we have several students with food allergies. If you plan on sending in a special treat with your child, please check with me to make sure that it is permitted. In addition, please only send in a treat for our class. Thank you!!

We will be eating snack in our class during the day. Again, we have some students with food allergies. Please make sure that the snack you send in is a peanut-free snack. Thank you!

The Hot Lunch Program is in full swing. Please make sure that your child has their ticket for their lunch.  Hot Pretzels will be sold on Tuesday and Ice Cream will be sold on Thursday's during lunch. Thank you!

In Religion, we are going to begin to learn about the Sacraments of Healing.  We will focus on the Sacraments of Reconciliation and the Anointing of the Sick.  So far in Health, we have learned about the Health Triangle and the Decision Making Process. Next, we will begin to discuss Nutrition.  We will learn about the food groups and about the importance of making good food choices.   In addition, we will learn about the six categories of Nutrients and about how to read Nutrition Labels on food items. 

We will be moving on to Chapter 11 in Mathematics.  In this chapter, we will work with the addition and subtraction of fractions and mixed numbers.   In addition, we will practice converting improper fractions into mixed numbers and work with fraction tiles.  We will still be using the ConnectEd website for homework assignments. If for some reason they have trouble using or navigating the site, the assignments can be found in the Useful Links section of this class page. If you have any questions, please ask!  

Science will take a turn to the world of Plants.  We will talk about the method and resources that a plant uses to create its own food for growth.  We used a Choice Board to reinforce and expand our understanding of Photosynthesis. The PowerPoint notes for this chapter can be found in the Useful Links on this page.  

 Thank you for all of your support!
