February News from 5M

heart_and_handsWe made it throught January !  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 for our buddy Mass with 2J. Tuesday is Spirit day day.  We get to wear our St. Chris spirit clothes .   Wednesday is  Ice Cream Sundae day. We will also meet together with the whole school in the afternoon to say the Rosary with Senora Bichrest. Thursday is Beach Day, (No bathing suits).  Friday is Bowling Day, Pajama Day, and movies with our buddies in 2J.  It's a great week to be at a Catholic School.

In February the fifth grade will be finishing up the body's systems and then learning about the Engineering Design Process so they can get ready for STEM Day on March 8.  The sixth grade will be learning about our Weather and the Ocean.

Spelling will be lessons 16, 17, 18, and 19.  Don't forget to practice on spellingcity.com.

The students will begin The One and Only Ivan.  This is our whole grade reading book.  The February book report is about Adventure.  The directions will go home the first week of February.  It is due February 21.

February 14 is Ash Wednedsay, please join us for Mass at 9:15.  On Friday, the 16th, 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 13 in the afternoon.  They will decorate a lunch bag to carry home their cards.  I will provide the bags.
