I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing summer. I am looking forward to another great year teaching Writing Workshop to the 5th and 6th graders and Technology to the 1st-4th graders.
I will be teaching the 5th graders once a week and throughout the year we will focus on different styles of writing in conjunction with their Language Arts. During the first trimester they will be entering a writing contest choosing a Catholic historical character and writing about his/her life. During the first trimester also Kathleen McGowan from the States Attorney’s office will speak to our students about internet safety/cyberbullying. She has been presenting at St. John’s for many years and the students are very receptive to her and her presentations.
I look forward to teaching your 5th graders and helping them to become excellent writers! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. Thank you!
