*The kids did a wonderful job with teaching the Holy Trinity at Monday Morning Prayer!


*I have attached a class list for our Valentine’s Day party on February 14th.  If your child wishes to send a Valentine to the other students, please have him/her write to either all of the kids or just the boys and just the girls.  We don’t want any hurt feelings.  We will be doing a simple party with Bingo, card exchange, and treats.  We will send an email for treat donations soon.



  • Cursive: A double-sided cursive sheet will now be included in the weekly packets.  Please encourage your child to try their best with neat writing.

Curricular Information:

Math:  We worked with place value blocks on expanded form with three-digit numbers.  We also learned some multiplication strategies, worked with fractions, and subtraction story problems.


Language Arts:  We finished our non-fiction feature books and were able to share them with our Special Persons.


Religion:  We continued our study of the Trinity by preparing for Monday Morning Prayer.  We broke into four main groups to reflect on one of each:  the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, God the Father, and God the Son.  Each group reflected on who their part is as well as why they are grateful for their part of the Trinity and the Trinity as a whole.  They then had to design a poster to share at MMP that represented their reflections.  It was a great activity for them to learn how to work as a small group.  Their goal for MMP was to teach the rest of the school about the Trinity.
