Learning is not attained by chance; it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.'~Abigail Adams

FYI...Vocabulary will be on the tests. Please be sure to review vocab with your child.
KEEP PRACTICING ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION MATH FACTS DAILY!!! Flash cards are a great way to review and practice.
We will finish chapter 22 this week with a test on Wednesday.
We will then discuss the Three Days in chapter 21. This is a very short chapter and there will be no test. I hope you will consider joining the parish in celebrating this very special church season starting with Holy Thursday Mass. See the bulletin for times. The best way for your child to learn about them is by experiencing them.
On Monday, we will read and discuss chapter 27 about Easter. Again, this is a short chapter and there will be no test. After that, we will prepare for First Communion.
Some key ideas to remember for chapter 22. HINT~Use these bullets as a study guide. Chapter 22:
The students will prepare for First Reconciliation and First Communion this year. They will receive these sacraments later in the school year, but you can help your child by helping them prepare now by visiting Jesus weekly at Mass and participating.
In order to be fully prepared to receive the sacraments, this year your child will need to know the following prayers.
Science: The students went to a convocation last week about Camp Invention. The students will be planting some seeds with the supplies we received from Camp Inventions. They will be observing their growth.
S.S.: Students will learn about our country's government.
