“I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life”-

…this is the theme for this week’s mass. We have enjoyed performing the songs for our program, “Highway to Heaven.” We hope you have enjoyed it, too! During math, we are working on calculator riddles, and we are also learning more about coordinate grids.  We are studying fairy tales during reading and will be presenting a tale on that last week of school.  We will keep you posted!

“Commitment” is a word we are learning about…

… as we study the Sacraments of Holy Orders and Matrimony. During math, we continue to explore the volume of a container and are learning what capacity means. Our last project for social studies is the East region of the United States.  The students will have the option of making a game board or an information board.  We will be making special cards for our wonderful moms, and we are very excited about our field trip to Lake Carlos on Friday!

Being Easter to others…

We continue to ‘see’ all the different places that Jesus appeared to his followers after his resurrection and how exciting that must have been to experience that.  We are trying to be Easter people to those around us and being a light for others.  We are exploring weight and volume during math.  We are taking our MN state tests in reading.

Tate Twardowski is our ‘Disciple of the Week’.

His kind and helpful ways are a tremendous example for all of us.  Thanks, Tate!  We are learning the lattice method of multiplication.  This method takes up more paper space, but the students seem to enjoy the ease of figuring out the problems.   Conclusions are our focus during our writing lesson.  Later this week we will be making our Lenten crosses during our art period.  Enjoy the warm weather!

Ruby Muellner is our ‘Disciple of the Week’ this week.

Ruby is kind and helpful to those around her.  Thanks for being your special self!  Our theme for this week’s mass is, “I am the resurrection and the Life.”  The third graders acted out the story of Jesus bringing Lazarus back to life.  During math, we are working on division problems using money.  We continue to work on our Lenten heart activities.  Have a great day!

Charis Miron is our wonderful ‘Disciple of the Week’.

Charis has a quiet strength about her that shows her beautiful smiles and helpful ways!  The third and fourth graders did a terrific job on their state booklets.  Check them out – displayed outside our classroom. Parents and grandparents, you are invited for Stations of the Cross next week on Monday at 8:30 A.M. and mass on Wednesday also at 8:30 A.M. The third graders are ministering at both of these church devotion/celebrations. Please join us in the church basement due to work in the main body.

Greta Middendorf is our, “Disciple of the Week” this week…

…she shows kindness toward others and is willing to help out those around her. Thank you, Greta! Suffixes and prefixes are our focus in spelling this week.  We continue to work hard on regrouping in subtraction with three and four-digit numbers. In social studies, we are finishing up our South booklets with some fun facts.  We are excited to see the finished product!  Thank you to the first graders for a fun-filled time in your classroom on Saint Patrick’s Day.  What an awesome way to learn about the Trinity with the neat pretzel snack that we created together!
