++Please be reminded that the students go out at Lunch recess, and now that the weather is colder, make sure they are dressed accordingly!++

Happy week two of Advent! We began working on our songs for the Christmas play and had a short practice in church to get our placements. Mrs. Hillman has come in to help and the kids were very excited to see her since she had her baby! There will be a letter going home this week with some more clarification about the play and costumes, so thanks for your patience and help as we prepare for the coming of baby Jesus!

Friday 12/15 is the Children's Christmas Bazaar, and it is a highly anticipated day filled with fun! The children are allowed to wear Christmas sweaters, socks, hair accessories, jewelry but over their gym uniform please. Please be sure to have your shopping list filled out and any money in a clearly marked envelope so that the older students who are helping first grade, can help more easily. 

We will still be working on Reading, math and Religion, Science, etc. but it is definitely hectic with the season, all of the excitement and of course our big show the last days of school, before break. You'll notice that our homework is a little lighter, but the children still need to be in school mode, as Mrs. Tremper calls it! A few tests this week and our final spelling test of 2017, on Tues. 12.19. 

Just an FYI: the Archdiocese let us know that as of the second trimester and going forward, all Spelling grades will NOW be in the writing portion of the grading system.
