Thank you to everyone who volunteered and sent in all of the delicious treats for our celebration on Tuesday morning. Happy Fat Tuesday and Valentine's Day!

Ash Wednesday is on February 14th. We will be receiving ashes at 8:30 a.m. in the Holy Family Chapel.  All are welcome to attend.  This is a wonderful way to begin our Lenten Season.  
   

We will be having a working snack in our classroom this year. I am asking that each student bring in one healthy snack and water to
 have during this time.

All homework, class assignments, and test dates may be found in your child's agenda.  

In Religion, we have completed our Unit on the Sacraments of Initiation.  We learned about the Sacrament of Baptism and the Sacrament of Confirmation. The next unit we will engage in is focused on the Sacrament of the Eucharist.  We will be taking an in-depth look at the way we worship and the parts of our Liturgy. In addition, we learned about the life and death of St. Maximilian Kolbe. Our class saint is Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton. We will learn about her life, successes, and challenges as the year progresses. 

In Health, we will transition to Nutrition.  We will learn about Calories, the Food Groups, Nutrients and Minerals, as well as how to read a Nutrition Fact label.  
 
Division, Chapter 7, will be our next topic in Mathematics.  We will learn how to divide with two-digit divisors.  In addition, we will review how to complete a long division problems, how to use rounding to estimate and divide, and on multi-step word problems. We will be using ConnectEd in the class and at home. Each student has received a letter, which contains their user name and password.  Please keep these user names and passwords handy, as we will be using the program throughout the course of the year. Thank you!

In Science, we will make change from our study of Weather to a study of Water.  We will learn about the salinity, the Hydrosphere, and the differences between Oceans and Lakes.  

If you have any questions, please ask.  

Thank you for all of your support!
