Week of December 4

Happy New Year! (Liturgically speaking)

This is the first week of Advent. A time for reflection and preparation. Let us find new ways to let Jesus into our hearts. Make the most of this time. Talk with your children about how important Advent is to you! Make sure you join the conversations about the Scripture your child/children are reading this season.
Religion 8th Gr - Today was Religion test over Chapter 7 and the Angelus Prayer. We begin Advent with Scripture to read and the Jesse Tree to contemplate! We will also be working on Chapter 8 which talks about the third mark of the Catholic Church: CATHOLIC. The Feast of the Immaculate Conception will be celebrated on Thursday! It is a holy day of obligation and speaks to the importance of Mary in our Church and in our spiritual life. Stay close to Mary always!
Religion 6th Gr - Had our test over the Angelus today. We will be working our way through the Jesse Tree and the significance of remembering the holy people of our 'Salvation History'! We will also review Unit 2 and remember the Feast of the Immaculate Conception this week.
Reading 6th Gr - We are working to complete our novel, Bud, Not Buddy before Christmas break. We finished chapter 8, discussing why that chapter is so different from the others. We will talk about the way the author actually did that on purpose!!!
