Catholic school week starts Monday, January 28th. The theme is learn, serve, lead and succeed! During the week we will be doing fun projects and activities such as a door decorating contest, whole school morning meetings, bingo, and having yummy treats! 

 

Important Information for Parents:

  • For Pre-K's service project they have been asked to donate a gently used toy. We will be discussing the service project with them during class meetings and whole group times, so hopefully they will have a toy in mind they are willing to part from. Please send in toys no later than Wednesday, January 30th. 
  • PJ day is Wednesday, January 30th. Students are asked to wear PJ bottoms and a school shirt (St. Clement, High School, College, etc.)

In reading, we have started student-led book groups called Literature Circles. The students take on leadership roles during our reading block and have ownership of the texts we're reading. They are supporting one another in achieving their learning goals. In addition, we will be discussing the different roles students will have in this book group this week and will begin reading our class novel, A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle.
