Greetings to you! Thanks for stopping by to read the blog for 5th grade this week!

Next week is our annual Fall Break.  School will be out of session from October 10-14, and will resume on Monday, October 17th.  Enjoy your time together!

The following week will be our Parent-Teacher Conferences, and students in 5th grade a required to attend.  It will be led by your child. 🙂  Last Friday, I sent home a form from Mrs. Floyd with your day/time.  Please email me if you didn’t not receive it.  I want to make sure everyone is informed so that our attendance for PTC is 100%!  I look forward to meeting with you!  Please make note that Thursday & Friday, 10/20 and 10/21, are early release days at 1:00pm.  Extended Care is ONLY available on Thursday, but please make sure your child has a form on file so s/he may attend.

Chapter 2: Sacraments

We have reviewed this chapter late last week, and will do so again today. Students will have hi-lighted parts in their books to use as a study tool.  Test will be Tuesday!

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.

Extra– A representative from Roncalli High School will be here on 10/20.  We look forward to hearing all about RHS and their upcoming Open House.  Be sure to check it out after mass if you are interested.

We finished our novel last week.  We will take a short break from our reading book, too.  This week we will focus on writing stories using a beginning, middle, and end (plot).  I will introduce our EXPAND model to add details and revisions.
