In 6th math we are reviewing some fraction concepts this week. There will be a worksheet each day.
6 Reading – We are over halfway in our mystery novel the Westing Game. Students are putting together clues and should be reading at home if there are absent from school. Students will have reading homework this week!

HAPPY CATHOLIC SCHOOLS’ WEEK!! I am proud and humbled to spend my career as a Catholic school teacher. The best part is working with your amazing children every day. This week the sixth graders are getting ready to lead our community for Mass on Tuesday. Your children will be readers, greeters, ushers, choir members, and gift bearers. Come join us for this wonderful celebration. We are honoring grandparents. We will be practicing at the church on Wednesday. Our next chapter is about Moses as deliverer of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. They will have a scripture reflection on Tuesday, and we will begin watching a video on Thursday.
Remember to have your child fill out their service log for the 2nd trimester. If you need ideas for service, please contact me.
