January 17 Newsletter
WE are Busy, busy, busy here getting ready for our Catholic School Week!!! I sure hope that you will be able to join us for 11:30 mass on Jan. 27 followed by our Open House! It is a great way to see what your child has been doing! Of course the BIG excitement is the habitats!! The students have been working very hard in science and computer doing research on their habitat and animal. Nest week we will use this research to write about our animal in class! I love their excitement when they find out something new and interesting! Habitat projects are due NEXT week, Jan. 23! I'm very anxious to see them too!
We have a very fun surprise scheduled today. A former STS parent of three has started a company that is called The Soul Harbor Therapy Horses! These horses are brought into hospitals and homes to do therapy to the sick! We are excited that Mrs. Diegel is bringing them to STS today into our classrooms! Yes! I'm sure your child will be full of information when they get home! Change for Change will contribute funds to this organization as it is run on DONATIONS only! Thank you for your generosity!
I will send back the results of the mid-term reading test next week! To be a better reader, I tell my students to READ! The more you read the better reader they will become! Thank you for encouraging reading every night!
We have been practicing our multiplication facts and also learning about fractions this week! I love this time of the year when I see them really learning and taking in so much!!!!
Enjoy the weekend snow...hopefully! The students where talking about their excitement to sled and ski and build forts! Such good memories are being made now! Enjoy!
