Happy New Year!  Wishing you all the blessings of good health and good times for 2015.

Thank you so much for the generous and thoughtful Christmas gifts.  Thank you for sending in the delicious treats for our Christmas party, too.

The December fun and wonderful vacation are over, and it is time to return to our regular work schedule.

Grade Five and Grade Six Social Studies classes will begin working on research projects for their state or country.  These projects will be divided into three parts and will be completed at home this month and next.  Directions for each section will be given in class and sent home for a parent’s signature on January 5th, January 13th, and January 27th.  The final project for both grades will be due on February 13th.

This month our literature class will be reading famous classics of children’s literature.  Students will be given several titles to choose from and read at home and at school for the month of January.  Several activities will be completed in school during this time, so the books should be brought to school daily.  Our school library has many titles from this genre.

Please remind the students that the written spelling lesson is due every Thursday.  They can practice the words at home by going to spellingcity.com.  The lists are under Mrs. Emond’s name.

We will return to our study of the Old Testament this month after taking some time off from the textbook to complete several Advent activities.

Please look for more information on the activities planned for Catholic Schools Week.  It will be a wonderful way to end the month!

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!

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!
