Shirley Dinkel's 5th and 6th Grade

Jan. 15-19, 2018

Dear Parents,

    AR is due Tuesday. There are a few students who are consistently late, which affects their grades (-10 points for every day late). Please check with your child that they are on track to finish their book on time. Thanks.

    Tuesday at 10:30 is the Kansas Day presentation. This is always an interesting and delightful event.

    Wednesday I will take 3 sixth graders to the radio station to tape excerpts from their creative writing, "Why I Love Catholic Schools." It was heartwarming to read all 44 of these essays. Mrs. Chris Dinkel and I will decide Monday who they will be. Hard decision to be sure!

    Thursday we celebrate January birthdays with Mass and lunch. 


6th Grade:*

Monday:  -Spelling words, "Unit 3 Review."

      -Begin IXL U-5. Due Friday. I am encouraging students to work ahead so they will be         even more prepared for State Assessments. ("He/She who does the work, gets the           learning" and "You only get out of it what you put into it.")

Finish this sentence: God help me to be what you want me to be/do for therein ...

Put your answer in red on my desk with your name. 


God is good all the time! All the time God is good!

God help me to be - what you want me to be.

Blessings on you and your holy family,

Mrs. Shirley Dinkel
