Week of April 30th
Hello Parents! Happy day Before May!!!! Can you even believe it???
This week we have several special things going on! First on our list, the May Crowning! Tomorrow, please make sure your child comes to school dressed in their Sunday Best! Children will need to bring their uniforms to change back into after Mass. Students also need to bring a flower or two for the procession.
Tomorrow is also Grandparents Day! Children will sit with their guests before Mass begins. They will be called back to get ready for the May Crowning. Once our statue of Mary is crowned, the children will return to their seats with their grandparents. After Mass, the children can bring their guests back to our classroom to look at their work, to the cafeteria for refreshments and visiting, and to the gym for the Book Fair and Photo Booth! Children can also take the grandparents on a tour to show off their favorite parts of the school! It should be a fun time!
Book Reports are due TOMORROW! I have given the children several days of class time to work on this, allowing them to type the information and share it with me to print. All the work must be typed, unless the directions say otherwise. From this point on though, students will need to type and print from home. There will be no time for me to print and have the students glue the information to the book jackets tomorrow morning. From the few that have been turned in early, I can see some super-cute work! I can't wait to look through all of them tomorrow!
At this point, I should have all the students' slide show presentations and project packets. We have started presenting, and I have to say, I am so impressed!!!! What talented, creative children you all have! I am so proud of them for working so hard. When I assigned this project, I thought I knew what 5th grade work should look like. Knowing the children did most of the work here in class, on their own, I now know I underestimated these children and what they are capable of. You should be proud as well. Once I get a chance to look through each project individually, I will share all the slideshows with all of you.
This Friday, I plan on giving a chapter 17 Religion Test along with the normal Friday tests and quizzes. I will send a review sheet to you via email tomorrow. We already started making one up in class today.
Whew! I think every week is going to get just a little bit crazier than the week before! Buckle up and enjoy the ride!!!
If you have any questions or concerns, please email me! And as always, thank you for sharing your children with me!
