I hope everyone had a chance to enjoy the weekend sunshine, hopefully more beautiful weekends to come.
In Math, we are finishing up chapter two with the test on Wednesday, the 25th. Students should bring the book home to study the various strategies, properties, and multi step word problems associated with this chapter. It is so very important that the students know their facts as we move into division, fractions, decimals, etc
In Religion, we continue praying the Rosary and finishing up the research on saints. Your child should have brought home a jumbo popsicle stick and the cut out template of the head of the saint they are studying. This is the part of the project to be finished at home and brought back on the 30th. The stick is the body of the saint. The students have a picture of the saint and they are to dress/decorate the stick with cloth, fabric, construction paper, or felt to look like the saint. They can be as creative as they can.
In cas it got lost, these were the directions.
Saints Project: Due date: Oct. 30th

Fill in as much as you can. Include date of birth and death if available. Include the feast date and what he or she is patron saint of.
