Mass Uniforms should be worn to school tomorrow. Students have permission from Coach Brahman to stay in their regular uniforms all day. They do NOT need to change. If students want to change, they are responsible for taking care of their belongings and changing during lunch.
We are headed to the nursing home this Friday to go Trick--or-Treating. Students should come to school in their costumes and have a trick-or-treat bag with them.
Pumpkins- If students are participating in the pumpkin decorating contest, they should bring their pumpkin into the 4th grade classroom Friday morning and put them on the back counter. We will make name placards and take the pumpkins out to the lunch tables together after the field trip.
We are doing a weaving project next week as part of our California Native American Studies unit and we need solid colored yarn. If you have a spool that you do not mind donating to the class, we would appreciate it! Thank you!
Quiz next week on praying The Rosary. October is "celebrate life month" and The Rosary is one of the prayers that 4th graders are required to learn. We have been studying and praying The Rosary in class together. Students are expected to know which prayers are prayed during the Rosary and when (which bead)/sequence they should be prayed in. Students will be required to label a picture of a Rosary like the one in their study packets. They may also use a real Rosary during the quiz. Most students know the prayers, but they do not all need to be memorized.
Book Report - By now students should have turned in their first book report and should have checked out and started reading their "classic novels". These novels should be read by December 1st. We will do planning for the book report in class and the final draft will be finished at home.
From Coach Bohman
Fit to Lead Newsletter ~ Teachable
The foundational pieces that make up a team are: recognizing that each person on a team is important, that everyone will be both a leader and follower, and for each team member to be teachable. Being teachable is key because it means that everyone on your team is humble, willing to learn and grow, listens and is respectful, and always gives their best effort. Successful teams are teachable teams!!
During PE, students had the opportunity to practice being teachable as they learned the correct way to throw and catch a baseball, football and frisbee. While practicing these skills, students also practiced their leading and following skills as they helped one another. Nate Hetherington, who is a former collegiate and professional player, and current director of Rancho Santa Fe Attack Soccer Club, came taught students about the game he loves and knows so much about! Whether beginners or elite level club players, our students were teachable and had much to learn from Coach Nate!!
Coach Vianney Campos is the head coach for the varsity girls field hockey team at Cathedral HS, and also the director of Pursuit Athletics Field Hockey Club. Coach V came and taught our classes about field hockey, which is the first time during PE in all of my 6 years at SJA that we've had such an opportunity! The Pursuit Athletics field hockey club is just beginning, all boys and girls are invited to come learn skills and play games on Weds 5:30pm-7pm at Cathedral HS. Please see their website if you are interested. We currently have 4 former SJA students playing field hockey at Cathedral... they love the sport and speak very highly of Coach V!

Family Discussion Questions:
1. Why is it important to be teachable or coachable?
2. Have you ever been a part of a team where someone is not teachable? What effect did that have on your team?
3. What is one way you can choose to be more teachable?
