I hope everyone had a wonderful vacation and is ready for a busy month.

We are now in the liturgical season of Lent.  Our class will prepare for Easter with a special unit in religion class and attending the Stations of the Cross every Friday.

Grade Six Social Studies classes are studying Europe this month.  Students will participate in a project done in teams of two or three working together at school to construct a European castle. They will have 60 minutes to create this castle from recycled materials brought from home.

Grade Five Social Studies classes have begun a unit on the colonization of America.  After seeing the finished Grade 6 junk projects and assisting the sixth graders on their second day of the project.  The fifth grade students will create some historical Colonial landmarks later this spring.

This month's genre for the March book report is a non-fiction historical event.  There will be an activity to complete in school at the end of the month.

Please continue to have students practice their spelling list words in preparation for the weekly test on Fridays.  Logging on to spellingcity.com is an excellent way to study for these tests.

Good luck to the St. Christopher basketball teams when they compete in the regionals in Connecticut later this month.  Go, Go, Go, Huskies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope to see many of you at the auction this weekend!

Happy Catholic Schools Week!!  Thank you to the faculty committee that worked so hard planning all of the special events for this week.  Students and teachers alike just love this week!

6W January News


Happy New Year to all of our St. Christopher families!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and lots of fun with family and friends over the vacation.  Thank you all so much for the generous Christmas gifts.  I appreciate your thoughtfulness so very much.

It is now time to get back to work. Please be on the lookout for three different sets of directions for Social Studies research projects that will be sent home for your signature over the course of this month.  Grade Six will be working on an ABC Book on a European country.  Grade Five will research a state and present the findings in the form of an ABC poster.  I know the students will do an outstanding job on these projects.  They always do!

Our literature class will be reading the novel My Side of the Mountain together in class this month.  We will also complete several activities on this book in school.  The genre for the book to be read at home in January will be great classics of children's literature.  Books should be chosen by the end of this week.

We will return to our study of the Old Testament in religion, starting with the story of Joseph and his Coat of Many Colors.  Go, Go, Go, Joseph!!!!

Please keep practicing the spelling list words at home by going to spellingcity.com.  Written work is due every Thursday, and the test on the list words is given on Friday.

There is much to do in the coming months for the Class of 2017.  I know that your students will continue to work hard.
