Week of May 18-22, 2015
Our year is winding down quickly. We are finishing up many of our projects as well as completing our work in both math and religion. There will not have any more spelling tests this year. We will have a math test on unit 9 this Thursday and then an end of the year math test after Memorial Day.
Each student is asked to bring in a picture of themselves doing a talent/sport outside of school. Many of our students are in plays, sports, dance, etc. outside of school. We would like to take one page in our First Grade Memories book and feature that “special talent”. If you haven’t done so already, there is still time to send in a photo. Please do so by Tuesday of this week.
Our days are full of exciting end of the year events. Please check our grade level newsletter and the school website for details on these events.
*Friday, May 22 – First Grade Author’s Day- 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm Multipurpose Room
This is one of the highlights of our 1st grade year! Siblings are welcome to attend, just notify the homeroom teacher. Feel free to bring grandparents and friends too. The first graders will proudly be displaying and reading their many literary works from this year. The authors will be signing their autographs and showing off their ebooks for the first time. It’s a very exciting day.
Students may leave for the day after the event. They must be signed out with a representative from the office who will be present in the multipurpose room.
*Monday, May 25 – Memorial Day – No School
*Wednesday, May 27 – 8th Grade Buddy Lunch
This is the last day the 8th graders have lunch at SJC. Aren’t we lucky that it is shared with us, their 1st grade buddies? First graders provide lunch for both themselves and their 8th grade buddy and then the two grades share a final recess period together. It really is a great time! The grade level coordinators are drafting a letter for each first grader with their buddy’s name and important information for the day. Please look for it to come home later this week.
*Thursday, June 4 – Celebrate SJC Day (previously known as Fun Day)
*Friday, June 5 – Last Day of School – All School Liturgy – Dismissal at 11:00am
