Virtue of the Month: Generosity
Students have been asked to bring in a photo of someone who they feel is an example of this virtue. They will need the photo for an activity that we are doing in class THIS THURSDAY.
Book Reports- Students were asked to finish their classic novels by tomorrow so that they are prepared to start writing their book reports in class. They will receive the instructions and planning packet in class tomorrow. We will spend the next 4-5 school days working on the project in class and then the rest is expected to be completed at home. While assisting your children in completing their book reports please keep in mind that it is a student project and they should be doing all of the work. They are so capable and creative, they may just need a little guidance! Thank you!
Reconciliation - On Tuesday 12/6 we will be going to reconciliation for the first time this year as part of our celebration of Advent. We have started preparing for this in class, but the students should be studying their guide and examining their conscience all week long. They will have a short quiz next Tuesday morning before we go down to the church. They will need to be able to write down the steps of reconciliation and the Act of Contrition.
4th Grade Mass is next THURSDAY. We are celebrating mass on Thursday because it is a Holy Day of Obligation when we celebrate the Immaculate Conception. Students should come to school in their mass uniforms on Thursday and they have the option to do PE in their regular uniform or change their clothes during lunch. All families are welcomed and encouraged to join us for mass! :)
Reminder: Students are expected to be at church no later than 7:45 to prepare for the mass.
Author Reading and Waffle Breakfast - I am happy to announce that the whole 4th grade class will be attending this very fun event together next Friday 12/9! Thank you for supporting this great cause! I hope to see many of you there :)
Nursing Home Visit next Friday 12/9
We will be bringing the holiday cheer to the nursing home next Friday with some festive Christmas caroling! Students may bring in Christmas accessories (santa hat, antlers, bell necklace, etc.) to wear with their uniforms.
Thank you to my awesome chaperones and drivers: Pam Liebig, Patty Calabrese, Linda, Betty McDonald, & Denise Teuber!
Polar Express Christmas Party - The 4th and 2nd grade will be teaming up for our 5th annual Polar Express Christmas Party on Friday 12/16.

Peacemaker - The 4th grade peacemaker award was given to Ben Lang this trimester. He is an excellent model of faith, friendship and scholarship. As we've been studying the virtues of the catholic faith, it is obvious that this student takes them seriously. I see him working to practice affability and prayerfulness in his everyday actions and more importantly he looks for these virtues in others. Both in the classroom and on the playground he is kind and considerate to all of his peers. He is the type of person that can peacefully work with anyone in the class and works hard to include others. He is a great helper and often offers a hand after he has completed his own work. This student is also very dedicated to his schoolwork. He completes his assignments on time, participates enthusiastically in class and puts great effort into everything he does. His ability to actively listen, think critically and empathize with others is remarkable for his age. One of the things that stands out most about this student is that he brings a great attitude to any task put before him. His bright smile and positive outlook on life is a shining light in our classroom and rubs off on everyone around him. Ben Lang we are so lucky to have you as a peacemaker and friend in 4th grade this year.
