The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.


Act of Faith

O my God, I firmly believe

that you are one God in three divine Persons,

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

I believe that your divine Son became man

and died for our sins and that he will come

to judge the living and the dead.

I believe these and all the truths

which the Holy Catholic Church teaches

because you have revealed them

who are eternal truth and wisdom,

who can neither deceive nor be deceived.

In this faith I intend to live and die.


Homework for 5th Grade

The purpose of homework is to provide practice skills and reinforcement of concepts presented in class. It is also intended to help instill in each student a sense of responsibility. Any work not finished in class is automatically homework. Please ask your child and check their assignment book daily to learn about any homework that needs to be finished. Unless otherwise noted, all homework is due the next day.

Suggestions for things to work on at home:

  • At least 20 minutes of sustained reading

  • Spellingcity.com (study spelling words, reading vocab words, social studies vocab words)

  • xtramath.com (to work on math facts fluency)

  • IXL.com (to work on individually leveled math skills)

  • Raz Kids (read books and take quizzes)

5th Grade does not have a newsletter, but will use this website to keep you up-to-date on the happenings in 5th Grade. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.


Daily Snack

Students may bring in a small, healthy snack daily. Having a snack in the middle of the morning will help keep blood sugar levels more stable, avoiding the highs and lows of the day, resulting in more stable behavior. Students will be given time to eat their snack, around 10:00, but it will be a working snack time, as students will be expected to continue with their work.

Acceptable snacks include: fruit, vegetables, crackers, cheese, yogurt, pretzels, etc. Please do not send chips, candy, cookies, or other “sweets” as students will not be permitted to eat those in the room.

Unflavored water is still the only acceptable daily drink in the classroom. Snacks cannot be shared with other students, as food allergies may be present.
