Happy Fall!  It’s unbelievable that we are in the last week of September! That means Fall Break is around the corner, and so are Parent-Teacher Conferences.   If you need to schedule a time to meet with me, please send me an email and I will arrange it with the schedule in the school office.   I look forward to meeting with each of you!

Don’t forget that trash bag sales and money are due today!!  Each family is asked to sell 6 rolls.  We appreciate your willingness and generosity.  It’s PRIDE’s biggest and best fundraiser of the year.

Missionary Childhood Association UPDATE:  The 5th grade class generously raised $24 for Sr. Loretto and the MCA.  While it doesn’t seem like much, it truly will make a difference in the lives of children around the world. Thanks for supporting our first service project of the year.  <3

We will learn about the 7 Sacraments of the Church, and how through receiving these we also receive sanctifying grace.  Each family has the option of doing the Family Time activities at the beginning of the chapter for extra credit.  Also,  we have been working carefully on having Attitudes of Gratitude.  Have your child show/tell you about their journal.  Our goal is to have more thankful hearts.
