Welcome Back from Spring Break. I hope everyone had a restful break. 

This week and up to next Wednesday we have Gym Sense. Students should wear their P.E. strip every day up to April 1st. 

There is no Mass this Wednesday.

This Friday is a dress up day. It will be wear something backwards. 

We have normal Spelling and Math. From now, Spelling each week will have 3 bonus words. 

Students should be practicing their poem every day at home. We will be practicing at school as well.
The school wide Speech Arts will take place on Tuesday, April 7th. It will start around 1:00pm on that day. 
If anyone is interested in doing the individual Speech Arts, please let me know. Individual performances will take place in the morning. I put a link up on the right under pages with our poem, Bible Readings and guidelines for Speech Arts for those interested.

Please return the report card cover and envelope this week if you have not already done so. We need them for the 3rd report card.

Last Week before Spring Break

We have a busy last few days before Spring Break. 

Friday, March 13th is the last day of school before Spring Break. School will dismiss early that day at 12:15pm. Report Cards will be going home at that time. It is also a dress up day. St. Patrick's colours. Please bring a $1 or $2 for charity/Grade 7 Grad.

This week is a little busy so there will be no Spelling test or homework this week. I will give a little bonus homework later in the week that the students can do over the break. Nothing too lengthy as their homework (beside reading, reading, reading) over the break should be mainly relaxing and playing. 

Speech Arts is coming up in April. I will be sending home our poem in the next few days. I will also post it up here as well. We will practice it in class and the students should practice it at home as well in order to memorize it.

School opens again on Monday the 23rd at 8:45am. From this day, we will be having Gym Sense (Gymnastics). Students should wear their PE strip everyday again. It will last until Wednesday, April 1st. 

I'm also asking for donations of tissue boxes. We've had many colds/running noses etc this year and are almost out of tissue. If you have any extra tissues boxes to donate to the class, we (myself and the students) would be very grateful. We go through it quickly.
