Lots of fun today at our multiplication ice cream social.   The boys and girls have worked so hard and really earned this special treat.    My hope is that they will practice the facts over the summer so they don’t lose them.

Readings for the grandparent’s day mass will be going home on Monday.   Please practice with your child so they will be prepared for the mass on Friday.    Every student in grades K-5 will have some part to play in the mass.

No homework for tonight.

camp    wagon    cave    gift    cent    gym    face   gem    girl    germ  debt    wrist    gnaw    thumb    knife

Halfway through another week.   The weeks are just flying by and the end of the year is already  in sight.     As a teacher that is a scary thought.  I keep thinking of all the things I need to cover yet.

Great news from second and third grade today.    The last person passed all of the memorized prayers.  Please help by using the prayers in your home: at bedtime, at mealtime, or any time of the day.    It is so important that the children continue to hear them being used by those they love and honor the most.

You probably already noticed but there is a book order in your child’s things this week.  The order is due by Friday, May 3.   A $25 on-line order will earn you a free book.  Check out the great possibilities for summer reading.

Still time to make AR goals.    Goals need to be met by May 24th.

If you haven’t RSVP’s yet for Grandparent’s Day, please do so by this Friday.  Mrs. Razz is looking for a final count.  Thank you.

Homework for tonight:

Grade 2

Read:  The Ugly Vegetables story in your reading book

Math:  p. 605-606

Spelling Book p. 95

Grammar Book p. 115

Practice Book p. 196

Grade 3

Read:  The Printer in your reading book

Math:  p. 605-606

Practice Book p. 176


Have a great evening.

Happy Monday.    It was fun to hear from our second graders as they shared exciting news about their 1st Communion and celebrations yesterday.     I always feel they seem more grown up and mature once they have celebrated this important sacrament for the first time.  Congratulations to Isabel Mather, Britton Bloch, and Matthew Koshiol.

Prayers need to be memorized by May 1st.   Jean VanderEyk will be here tomorrow to listen to prayers for the last time before the deadline.    Only one third grader has memorized them all.   Many have only 1 or 2 left so really practice hard tonight so you can earn that special reward that Jean has for you.

Two more opportunities to earn toppings and ice cream for our multiplication party on Friday.   We will be taking a timed test tomorrow and another on Friday.   Keep working on the facts and get them memorized.

Still time to make your AR goal.    Our party will be held on Friday, May 24th.    There is still plenty of time so keep working hard and read, read, read.

Be sure to practice spelling words tonight!   Only one got 100% today and doesn’t have to take Friday’s test.    Second graders have the tricky silent consonant words.

Homework for tonight:.

Grade 2

Read: p. 232-233  City Garden

Spelling Book p. 93

Grammar Book p. 116

Math:  p. 599-600

Grade 3

Read:  p. 232-233  To the Rescue

It’s Friday, and I am ready for the weekend.    Doesn’t sound like the weather will be too cooperative though.  Could be rain–could be snow.   We will just have to wait and see.  I did have some outdoor plans so those may have to change.

Congratulations to our second graders who will be receiving the Eucharist for the first time this Sunday at their Holy Communion.    Mass is scheduled for 9:00—1/2 hour earlier than the usual time.  There will also be an omelette breakfast served before and after mass.

Congratulations to Michael DeWall.  He was the winner of the Subway certificate for returning his weekly reading log.

Remember that all assigned prayers must be memorized by May 1st.   Jean VanderEyk will be here on Tuesday to listen to  prayers so be sure you study them over the weekend.

Little less than a month to complete AR goals–the reward party will be held on May 24th.

We will be having our math ice cream party on Friday, May 3rd.   Two more chances to earn those special toppings to go with your sundae.

Watch for a book order coming home on Monday.  It will be our last one of the year.    Time to pick up some great summer reading.

No homework for tonight.
