Gala- Thank you to everyone who attended or supported this event in any way! Our class sold 100% of our raffle tickets (and MORE), so the students will receive an ice cream party. Great job 4th grade!!
Thank you everyone for getting the overnight field trip forms turned in on time!! It is coming up very quickly - the Wednesday & Thursday that we get back from break.
Poetry Cafe- The 4th grade has been studying and writing poetry for the past 3 weeks. Please join us for a celebration of their writing tomorrow at 1:45 in the 4th grade classroom. Thank you Pam & Elayne for providing refreshments!
Lenten Rice Bowls - Please have your child bring in their rice bowls by Thursday so that we can have them ready to donate. Thank you!
Book Clubs- Students have some reading to do for with book clubs over spring break. Please check in that your child has their novel. Also, the students are allowed to bring in snacks to share with their book club group during their meetings (kind of like how adults enjoy yummy snacks during book clubs). The groups each have 4 members and will typically meet twice a week. DO NOT FEEL OBLIGATED TO PROVIDE SNACKS. This is totally optional and meant to be fun. Thanks!
Family Life is a part of the religion curriculum in 4th grade. A copy of the curriculum, the parent connection packet and a permission slip went home last week. Please take some time to look over the curriculum to make sure that you are comfortable with everything being taught. All of these items (including the parent packet) need to be returned after Easter break on April 28th.
Holy Thursday Retreat - it is a tradition at Saint James to spend the Thursday before Easter Break preparing for Easter with a religious retreat. All day the students will participate in faith-based activities and prayer. We end the day with praying the Stations of the Cross down at the church with the 8th grade leaders. Families are invited to join us for our "Washing of the Feet Ceremony" in the church at 9:30 and/or the Stations of the Cross prayer service at 11:15 in the church.
Thank you Patty, Jen & Katharine for providing snack!
Chapter 9 Math test will take place on Tuesday after break. Students may want to review simplifying fractions using IXL if they have free time over the break.
March Madness Update: Congratulations Ben on winning the March Madness Book Tournament with Billy B. Fries an Ant! Sebastian was a tough competitor with Captain Underpants. All of the students did a great job and were awesome sports throughout the tournament!
