Phys. Ed. and Health (Mrs. Foster)

We will separate the class into boys and girls for our upcoming talk on growth and development. A separate letter will go home with details.

Social Studies

We will finish off the year learning about Ancient Civilizations.

Art

God is our Creator. Part of being made in His image means that we, too, have creative abilities. In our art studies this year we will appreciate the beauty that God has given to us, while learning to create pieces of art that praise God for our abilities. Additionally, we will develop our skills through purposeful dramatic expression.

Music

Please bring in your recorder for classes.

French

Please check the homework board for any assignments and tests from Madame Trebicka.
