*It’s so hard to believe that it is December!  I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.


*Our third trimester ended last week.  Report cards and assessments will go home tomorrow.


*Advent is upon us and we are humbled by the awaiting of Jesus’ birth.  We will celebrate Advent prayer daily in our front foyer until Christmas break.  We will begin this special prayer time at about 8:40. If your child is tardy, please know they will have to wait quietly on the stairs until this prayer is over.  Please join us if you can!

Curricular Information:

Math:  We learned about doubling facts in multiplication and that a double is anything times two.  We used numberlines to see the doubles.  We also worked on lots of story problems and continued learning about fractions in Number Corner.


Religion:  We finished making our Parts of the Mass books and even taught Mrs. Croft’s first grade class what we learned.  Look for these books on our hall bulletin board soon!


Science:  We wrapped up our water and climate unit by taking a final assessment.  Look for these to come home with report cards tomorrow.


Social Studies:  We took notes on a double-sided diary about the first Thanksgiving.
