What a wonderful job the sixth graders did at the spring program!

Thank you for all the hard work. Next week we will be having our final test in religion and math. Our AR goal is due on the 27! Remember that graduation mass is on May 28 at 8:30 A.M. We hope you can all attend. It is going to be extra tough saying good bye to this group of students. Having them two years in a row has been a special blessing for me. We hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day.

This week in your 6th Graders life…

This week in the sixth grade room, we are finishing up on our MCA test. Thank you for getting your child to bed early and fixing a healthy breakfast. I’m sure they are doing their very best.  We had a wonderful luncheon with the American Legion yesterday. What a great group of well-behaved students! Next Friday is our field trip. We are learning so much about Fort Snelling and the Underwater World. They are very fun topics to study.  Have your child here at school at 6:30 A.M. as the bus will leave at 6:45 A.M. Please pack a good snack and lunch because it is going to be a long day.  If you want to send extra money for the gift shops, it is up to you. We will also be stopping for supper close to St. Cloud. Please pray an extra prayer for nice weather. Thank you!

Wonderful job on the social study projects.

We learned a great deal regarding our first 13 colonies. In math, we are focusing on math reviews – preparing for our MCA’s.  I heard many terrific things about our students’ behavior during our school’s accreditation.  Thank you for all you do in making our jobs so very special. The students are making beautiful Station of the Cross booklets. The sixth graders will be ministering at the mass on April 23; we hope you can join us.

The sixth graders are working very hard on their Lenten sacrifices to help us grow closer to Jesus.

Our new unit in math is called “Rates and Ratios.”  We continue to learn about our wonderful country of the United States. The sixth graders will also be quizzed on the Stations of the Cross this week; please help them prepare by going over them at home.  Our adventures at Lake Carlos were wonderful. Your children’s behaviors were beautiful, and their knowledge of the great outdoors was tremendous! Thank you for all you do! God bless and happy spring!!
