Dear Parents,

           It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!! Our students will be leading the morning assembly during the month of December.  Please ask your child what their role is during this first week.  Please come and join us at 8:15.  It will only take 5-10 minutes.

Mrs. Kasparie won the raffle for the Out of Dress Code Day from the Soup supper!!! Our class will take advantage of this opportunity on Thursday (12/6), the day after our First Reconciliation. 

As our special Christmas service project, our class will be participating with the 3rd and 4th grade in a CareNet collection.  I have included a separate sheet explain what items to donate.

Our students will be studying Christmas Around the World.  The students will begin to realize that almost all of the traditional Christmas customs we have relate back to the first Christmas.  We will be studying Christmas in Holland, Germany, and Sweden this week.

We are working hard in math.  We will take the test on 2-digit addition Thursday.   The students are ready to take on 2-digit subtraction.  It will probably cause some confusion when we begin borrowing.   Hang in there.

  In reading one group is working madly to finish their guided reading book before the long break.  The other group just started a new one.  Please keep working on the monthly book reports.  Some of the kids are reading harder books now so they might need to use part of their Christmas break to finish their book.   I will be testing their progress when we come back in January.

We will be having a spelling test again on Friday.  This week we are beginning Unit 13.

I want to also take this opportunity to thank you for helping your children prepare for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  Wednesday is the big night.  All of the students have all of their packets finished.  We will see those of you involved in Reconciliation at 6:30 at St. Anthony’s.  Our next learning curve in religion will be about Advent and Christmas.

Have a great week.  Sincerely,

Mrs. Phillips
