Week of September 19

Welcome back to the 6th Graders!! I hope that Camp Kern was a memorable time for you filled with much learning and lots of fun. I would also like to thank Mrs. Jean Frey for spending time with the 8th graders on Friday making rosaries and sharing the story of Fatima with them. The rosaries they made were beautiful! Here's what's happening this week:
8th Grade Religion - Students will be tested on the Morning Offering Prayer and we finish Chapter 2 with a Quiz! We take a look at Chapter 3 which identifies the 7 Precepts of the Church. As a quick review of the Old Testament there will be a Bible Hunt.
6th Grade Religion - We are finishing Chapter 2, so expect a quiz and the students must have the Morning Offering Prayer memorized with a quiz later this week. In Chapter 3 we discuss what it means to be made in God's image.
We will also review Sunday's Readings.
6th Grade Reading - We continue with our class novel, A Long Way From Chicago and take a look at how Richard Peck has changed our views about Grandma Dowdel! We'll also look at his use of figurative language, especially idioms!
