The students were so excited to come back from Christmas break and tell their friends and me all about what they did over break. It was so great hearing about how they spent their break. We worked hard this week to finish the 2nd quarter today. Report cards will be coming home next Friday, Jan. 18th. We are still working on the basic multiplication facts so keep practicing them at home. We will be testing over the 4’s facts (Tues.) and 6’s facts (Fri.) next week. Also this is a reminder that Catholic School’s Week Mass will be on Friday, January 25th either at 8:30 or 10:00. The school is sending home a form today in the Friday folder for you to fill out and return. Please have your child return the form on Monday in their Friday folder. If you know you can’t make it or another relative during on that day can you please let me know and I will make sure that your child has someone to sit with. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.
