December Tidings

Welcome to December!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. What a difference a year makes. Can you believe last year at this time we were still shoveling out from our first snow storm.  This year brought us lovely warm weather so that we could visit all our family and friends.


We were very busy in November learning about classifications of organisms, the structure of plants and animals, the sacrament of Confirmation, preparing for the Thanksgiving prayer service. The kids did an awesome job.


This this month will be just as busy. The students will be learning about instincts, physical and behavioral adaptations, and then the cell and its parts in Science. In Spelling we will be covering lessons 11, 12, 13, and 14.  Don't forget to use spellingcity to help with studying. The genre for the book  report is Poetry. The activity that goes along with the poetry will be done in class.  The students will be  given a rubric in class and should be done in one day.  We will be learning more about Advent and the Christmas season in Religion.  We also will be sharing preparation, along with 5V, of the mass for the feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8th at 9:15.  Please come and join us.


The Christmas party will be on December 22 at about 1:30.  Details will come later in the month.


December 23rd will be an early release and no aftercare.
