A couple of people have volunteered, but I am needing more help.  We will be making the food on Saturday 1/26/19 starting at 10:00 am at the parish hall.

Reading/AR Goals/Reading Log

Please encourage your child to read for enjoyment. After reading a book in their reading range, make sure that they take an AR test. Each child will receive a milkshake of their choice after every 70 points earned in AR tests.


Math assignments for this week are lessons 52, 53, and 54 for both grades. Assignments are randomly selected for grading. Those grades make up the Math Homework grade on report cards. Parents are encouraged to check all homework every night for correctness.

For graded homework assignments, students can redo any missed problems, turn the redo in with the original homework, and receive full credit for any problem correctly redone.

If your 5th-grade child forgot his/her math book, there is a PDF version in the Classroom Documents. Your child can find the day's lesson and do the work.

Unfortunately, the online link to the 6th-grade math textbook is no longer working. I no longer find the math book online when doing a Google search.


We will be starting on the Solar System.

Social Studies

We will be starting Lesson 4, "A Government of Three Branches." Students will write vocabulary words in their Social Studies notebooks and will be doing worksheets in class.


We are into the study of Saints.  The students have started working on their Saints book report.

I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL week this week. Please remember to keep our class and our school in your prayers.


Mrs. Charles
