I teach social studies to the fifth and sixth grades at St. Christopher. I love history, current events, and the Boston Red Sox!

6W December News

We are all enjoying the wonderful Advent celebrations this month.  Thank you to the volunteers who helped with the Christmas shopping in the church hall. Our classroom looks so pretty with all of the Jesse Trees that came in for an at-home family project.  Thank you to all the parents and siblings who helped with this 6W tradition.  The Second Annual St. Christopher School Christmas Tree Lighting was a great time, too.  The sixth grade enjoyed playing the important roles in our school Christmas concert.

The Christmas fun continued in social studies.  Grade Five has almost completed their “Christmas in America” unit, and their work can be seen on the beautiful posters that were created in class.  Grade Six studied the customs of other countries in their “Christmas Around the World” unit.  They wrote and illustrated an essay on the traditions in their European country that they are researching this year.  This class also created some outstanding posters to demonstrate what they had learned.

Our class Christmas party will be held after lunch on December 22nd.  Thank you in advance to those who will be sending in treats for this day.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  Enjoy the time with your families and friends.  It truly is the most wonderful time of the year!

6W NEWS

Thank you to all who sent in treats for our Halloween party last week.  A good time was had by all!  Thank you to Mrs. O’Brien for taking the yearbook pictures of both sixth grades enjoying their parties.  If your child did not serve on the Halloween Committee that means that they have signed up to bring in a treat for the Christmas party.  Students are welcome to bring in something for both parties, if they would like.

The first marking period closed last Friday.  I am so pleased with all of the hard work and effort that our students have shown this quarter.  Report cards will be distributed on November 7th.

Grade Five and Grade Six Social Studies classes participated in an election unit that culminated in an election of new members to St. Christopher School Student Council for the 2014-2015 school year.  Congratulations to the seventeen students who were elected by their homeroom classmates to represent the student body.  Our motto is to spread “Spirit and Service” to our school, St. Christopher Church, and the community of Nashua.  Thank you to the fifty-seven candidates who participated in this year’s election.  Your posters were A Plus and Beyond!

Members of the Student Council will assist Mrs. Clarke with Morning Prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance each day.  Next week they will lead a school-wide Veterans’ Day observance over the intercom on November 10th.  Grades Five and Grade Six Social Studies classes will have special classes on that day to remember the significance of this very special day.  There is no school on the actual holiday, November 11th we thank all of the veterans for their service.

Please continue to have students practice the spelling list words at home on spellingcity.com.  They are listed under Melissa Emond’s name.  Written work is due every Thursday, and the spelling test is given every Friday.

We continue to study the Old Testament in Grade Six Religion.  Directions for a very special 6W Advent project will be sent home soon.

I am looking forward to meeting with my homeroom parents at the conferences on November 18th.  If any parent from another class would like to meet, please send me an email.  I will set up a conference at another time either before or after school.

Happy Thanksgiving!

 

October News

I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful fall season.  This month we celebrate the Month of the Holy Rosary.  We will be completing several activities on the Rosary in religion class this month.  Vocation Day is a very special event for our school this month, too.  Many special events have been planned by the Faith Outreach Committee for this day.  We look forward to welcoming all of our special guest speakers!

This month we will also prepare for the November elections with a special election unit in all social studies classes for the fifth and sixth grades.  Students in these classes will have the opportunity to run for Student Council on the first Tuesday of November.  Students will create a campaign poster, write and deliver a speech, and participate in a press conference during the last week of October.  Good luck to all the future candidates!!

6W literature students are reading biographies this month.  They will complete an art activity and a writing assignment in school to prepare for an oral presentation during the first week of November.  I always look forward to the final product!  We have some very creative students in this class!

Directions will be coming home soon for a map activity for both grades.  Grade Six students will create a map of their chosen European country.  Grade Five students will create a map of their chosen state.

6W will be joining our buddy class, 1A, for a Halloween project this month.  We will also have our class party on October 31st.  Students will sign up to bring in treats and supplies for either the Halloween party or the Christmas party.

Happy Halloween!
