February News

21533033 We made it throught January with not one snow day!  I think that might be a record.  It did make it easier to cover the curriculum.  The students finished their Human Body projects and they were wonderful.  They worked hard and it showed.  A special entry will be up next week when I get all the kids pictures with their projects.

The first week of February is Catholic School Week.  There are many activities planned for the kids beginning with the whole school meeting in the church on Monday to say the Rosary in Spanish with Senora Bichrest. Tuesday is P. J. and buddy day.  We get to wear our pjs and see a movie with our buddies in 2J.  Wednesday is Spirit Day and Ice Cream Sundae day.   The students can wear their Husky Pride shirts or any St. Chris shirts.  Thursday is a really busy day with skating in the morning and working on our auction project in the afternoon. It is also beach day so when we get back from winter we can change into our summer "beach"wear.  (No bathing suits).  Friday will end with Mass being led by 6E and 1M.


In February the fifth grade will be finishing up the body's systems.  The sixth grade will be learning about Earth and our place in this vast universe that God has created for us.


Spelling will be lessons 17, 18, and 19.  Don't forget to practice on spellingcity.com.


The students will continue to read Stone Fox.  The students are enjoying reading about the trials of a 10 year old named Willy and his dog Searchlight.  The February book report is about Adventure.  The directions went home the last week in January.  It is due February 17.

February 10 is Ash Wednedsay, please join us for Mass at 9:15.  On Friday, the 12th, please join us as 5M leads the school in the Stations of the Cross at 2:15.  


The students will be exchanging Valentine cards on Friday, February 12 in the afternoon.  They will decorate a lunch bag to carry home their cards.  I will provide the bags.


And finally this leads to our February vacation.  Have fun!!


Mrs. Mitchell and 5M
