FYI

Just a few reminders:
1.  Thursday is an out of uniform day to support our Diocesan Seminarian Fund.  A donation of $1 or more is appreciated.
2.  Friday, at mass we are celebrating St. Vincent De Paul.  Our class has been asked to bring in canned soup.  Also, at 3:30 the Walk for Life at Pendery Park will take place.  Please join the 7th and 8th graders and support a wonderful cause.
3.  Book Orders should come home today.  There is an option to place orders on-line, which lead to added benefits.  I have placed the order code on each order form.  If you would prefer to order through the classroom, please make the check out to Scholastic.  Orders are due by September 30th.
4.  As of October 1st, next Tuesday, NO shorts will be permitted.  Please check the handbook on the proper tights/leggings that are allowed to be worn under the uniform jumpers, and also check the appropriate pants that are allowed.  Thank you.

A Few Updates

4th Grade is completing their first chapter in Math.  They will be taking their test tomorrow.  Next up will be a quick review of addition and subtraction.  Please have your child practice their math facts, whether addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, or all four.  The more confident the students are with their facts, the more confident they are in new skills being taught.  Sumdog is a favorite site.

3rd Grade is getting very close to finishing their first chapter in Math.  Their test will be sometime next week.  Please practice addition and subtraction facts as well as counting and recognizing money.  The students love playing Sumdog which is a great site for practicing facts.

We have taken our first Science Test and will be moving on to Kentucky History.  The students were able to do a few experiments in the classroom involving density, physical and chemical changes, and properties of matter.
