Happy Monday!  Students were able to “view” the eclipse via the NASA website.  It was quite interesting to watch!

This week we will not have mass on Thursday; instead we will celebrate the Feast of St. Rose on Wednesday.  Join us for mass at 8:30!

Dates to Know:

8/25 School Picture Day (forms went home today)


*Check the Google Calendar on the front page of our school’s website!


Each student will be using a journal title “Attitude of Gratitude” this year.  This week we will decorate our own, and also write our first entries.

Did you know that St. Rose is celebrating 150 years?  Yes, that’s right! Our parish as been a vibrant part of the Franklin/Johnson Co community.  Please join us this weekend as we kick-off our celebration.


We are working on understanding place-value.  Each place represents a value ten times the value of the place to its right. Please review a place-value chart with your student. Each group of three places is called a family or period. We will focus on the ones, thousands, and millions place-values.

Homework is written in assignment notebook.


Social Studies– 

We began Chapter 1 Our Country’s Geography Lesson 1: Land and Regions. Each child has a study guide to be using and this will be helpful to have handy come test time.  I’ll keep you posted on a potential test date.  It won’t be for a few weeks.

*We’ve now covered mountain ranges and plains.  Students should be reviewing their study guide!


Our story this week is a tall tale about Davy Crockett.  We will review plot development using the beginning, middle and end of the story.  Students will identify problem(s) and solutions.  We have 8 new vocabulary words and those can be found in student reading journals.

Grammar: subjects and predicates (simple and complete)

A subject of a sentence tells who or what the sentence is about.  The predicate of a sentence tells what the subject does or is.

Next week we will ease into Vocabulary for Achievement.

Spelling: none for this week

Reading Log:  Due Friday, September 1

Science- From the desk of Mrs. Tieken:

We have begun our study of food chains. Students should already have a good grasp on the vocabulary as we have been working with it in-depth for the past two weeks. We will be ready for a vocabulary assessment on Tuesday August 29th.

Questions, comments, or concerns please email me at [email protected]  or I invite you to call me at home, your child has my number in their planner.

Peace and blessings
