Dear Families,

Each Monday morning during Lent, we will begin our week with a school-wide prayer service to reflect on the Gospel and think of ways we can grow closer to God. Please encourage your children to complete our Lenten activities and remember to color one petal each week!

Next week, students will be taking the New York State ELA exam. This test will be administered on Monday, April 1st and Tuesday, April 2nd. Please ensure that your child gets a good night's rest and eats a healthy breakfast! Any questions/concerns regarding the exam can be discussed at parent-teacher conferences on Thursday 3/28. Any opt-out requests must be made directly to Mrs. Kahn in writing. 

Please remember to check Mrs. William's class page on a weekly basis to stay up-to-date on what's happening in Math, Science, and Religion. You can visit her page by clicking here: Mrs. Williams

Also, please make sure to send a note if there is a change in your child's usual dismissal. Also, students should bring a small, healthy snack and a bottle of water to school. Thank you!

This week, students are working on preparing for the NYS ELA exam by reviewing the many skills we have learned this year. The homework will consist of reading passages and questions to prepare your child for this test. There are no spelling words this week as we are not working in Journey's this week.

Students have done a lot of research on the topic of zoos in preparation for our opinion writing piece. Students also had a chance to have a class debate on zoos to help them prepare to make a strong claim, and support their claim with reasons and evidence. We also worked on counter-arguments to further support their opinion. This week, we are putting all of this information into our writing. Students are working on revising, editing, and creating a final copy of their opinion essay.

Social Studies:
In Social Studies, students have been working on understanding the growing frustration of the colonists that eventually led to the American Revolution. This week, we will discuss Paul Revere's Midnight Ride and discuss the first battles of the American Revolution.
