The open dress rehearsal is at 10:00 AM and the official show starts at 1:00 PM. You won't want to miss it! :)
Book Reports are due next Friday! Information about the "free choice" book report went home a month ago and there is also information on my website. If students have an idea other than the options listed, they need to talk to me ASAP about their proposal. All reports will be presented to the class next Friday. Students should be finished reading their Newberry Award winner novels and start working on the report this week.
Family Life- Information on family life is going home with your child today. This is a part of our religion program. Please review the material and sign the permission slip. If you have any questions or are not comfortable with your child participating in family life, please contact me so that we can discuss an alternate assignment. We will start the program on Monday. This program is very introductory, FYI. - 5th grade is when they learn the anatomy, etc.
Speaking of family life... it is that time of year to start talking to your kids about wearing deodorant. I've been getting some whiffs of blossoming adolescents the past few weeks - especially after PE :)
No Homework Club next Thursday- The students have earned their third and final class reward... they voted on "No homework for a week" so that will start next week. They don't know that they earned it yet, so keep it a secret :)
Walk Through California- this is an awesome program that SJA participates in each year. It is like an "in school field trip" where the students recap everything they've learned in social studies this year. Each child will have an assigned "role" that they need to prepare for. Information about this role will go home next week. Please help your child to memorize their lines before the program on June 8th. Parents are welcome to come watch - it will start at 8:30 AM in the parish hall on 6/8. It is very entertaining.
Publishing Party- We have been working hard on our last big writing project of the year. It is always a favorite: creative story writing. Students will finish publishing and illustrating their stories next week and we will celebrate all of their hard work with a publishing party. Parents are welcome to join us from 2:00-2:45 next Thursday, June 2nd.
If any parent would like to volunteer to provide beverages and treats, that would be very much appreciated!! Please let me know :)
