**Don’t forget students should wear Mass Uniform on mass days!  This is blue pants and white shirts for the boys.  Plaid skirt or jumper with a white shirt for the girls! Now that we are in the “winter” months, the girls may wear blue pants and white shirt.  This will be in effect through March.

 SPELLING We are back to reading stories from our Reading Book, so we are back to our normal list of words.   This week we will work on words with endings having a “y to i” before adding the endings.  Due to Friday being filled with activities for Good Friday, our Spelling tests will be Wednesday and Thursday this week.
 Please see the link below for the words for the next three weeks!
