Welcome to Corpus Christi School
Fourth Grade!

Dear Families,


Today the students began writing scripts reenacting the events leading to the Mexican-American War.  The kids are acting out the many conflicts that occurred during that time period.  Yes, toy swords and toy guns will be coming into the classroom.  We have discussed and reviewed the rules for proper use of these toys. 


Next week we will read and discuss the first unit in our Family Life series, “God’s Gift of Family”.  During this period of study, students will learn skills and gain knowledge they need to live a healthy and holy life within their family, for now and in the future. 

Students will also work on developing:

  • an appreciation that the family is the person’s first community
  • an understanding that beliefs and values are developed, shared and lived within the family
  • an awareness that healthy families provide social and spiritual meaning for all members


The Family Life Parent Connection handout will be sent home Tuesday for you to review prior to the lesson.


Enjoy the long weekend!

-Maria
