Growing up in Northern California and attending Catholic Schools myself, and now as a parent, I know how important it is to have your input and support as the year goes on. No one knows your child better than you do. As a parent, your perception of your child is a valuable resource for me. The more I know and understand about your child, my student, the more effective I can be. I would appreciate it if you would participate in a Parent Homework Assignment that will be of great value to me, and hopefully to you. Sometime in the next week, please write a letter to me introducing your child, and return it to me by September 2nd, or e-mail it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be honest and complete. I think you will be surprised how heart warming this assignment will be. I’m looking forward to reading your letters. Thank you for taking part in this unusual but important assignment. Your letters will remain confidential. Please feel free to call if you have any questions.
Don’t forget that your child was asked to complete 8 assignments in ALEKs this summer. The assignments have been uploaded and are ready for your child to begin. Some assignments are staggered throughout the month of June. If your child receives a 90% or above on each assignment, they will be eligible to attend the pancake breakfast hosted by the math department in the fall.
Ms. Griffin also emailed and asked for your child to read a historical fiction book this summer. Please contact Ms. Griffin if you have questions about this assignment.
Have a wonderful summer. See you on August 29th!
It has been a very busy week this week and so I thought I would take a minute and send out some reminders.
- Science Astronomy Test tomorrow
- Social Studies test tomorrow on Chapter 5
- Spelling sentences are due
- Vocab cards are due
- Reading log is due
I will be checking Expert Cards again tomorrow. Some students still don’t have their cards memorized yet, so I am checking daily to make sure they are ready for next Wednesday’s Walk Through California onsite activity.
Remember your child will need to come in free dress on Wednesday and dressed as something to do with California history. I am also still looking for a score keeper if you are interested in being here all morning.
- Mass uniform tomorrow for all school mass at 11:15
- We are still in need of donations for our “Beach Party” themed basket for the Carnival auction
- Third grade is collecting cans for a Works of Mercy project due tomorrow
- Padres ticket orders are due to me tomorrow
Thanks so much for all that you do for our school. One more day to go and you have successfully survived your first week back!!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Here are some quick reminders for this week:
Tuesday – pizza lunch
Wednesday – Taco Truck if your child raised 100 dollars for the Spirit Run Fundraiser. They received invites last week.
Thursday – walking field trip to Gillespie to meet their Spanish pen pals (10-12)
Sunday – Open House from 10 am -1 pm
Spanish permission slip – today Senorita Loredana heard from the Spanish teacher at Gillespie that she would like to have the kids meet on Thursday. Students were given permission slips today and I am offering extra recess if the whole class can bring them back signed by tomorrow.
International Luncheon is NEXT Thursday and they are looking for dishes! Please use the SignUp link below if you can help make a dish for this incredible event. The kids love it!!
Valentine’s Day Party – we usually do have a Valentine’s Day party. I would like to have one of Friday, February 12th. Students are encouraged to bring a decorated bag or box to collect cards in. This is the ONE time I allow treats and non-nutritional snacks to be brought in and distributed. All items go home for your to decide how to best distribute. We usually have a craft and some snacks as well, similar to our Christmas party, so I will be looking for some people that might be willing to help with that as well. I mainly wanted to alert you to be on the look out for cards! I will send you a class list so you can make sure every child has one.
