Dear Families, 

We had a great first few days of school.  It was nice to see some of you at the Beach Mass this morning.  We are so lucky to be able to enjoy God's creation while we celebrate Mass.  As we begin our first full week of school, please remember to bring in any missing supplies, money, or forms as soon as possible.  The sooner we have that all taken care of, the better!

This week we will be working on place value in math.  We will be learning about patterns and estimation as well as working on addition and subtraction skills.  Please be sure that the children are practicing their facts regularly.  Having them mastered will allow them to focus more on the skills and help them to be more successful throughout the year. 

We will be reading A Fine, Fine School this week and learning about story structure.  Please encourage the children to bring in a book to read during independent reading time.  They will have opportunities to take books from the classroom and school libraries, but they should always have a book with them to read.  In ELA we will be reviewing the rules for writing sentences and the types of sentences.  It would be great for the children to start the year with good habits.  Please check any written homework for complete sentences and encourage them to do their best!

In social studies we will be learning about maps.  The children will learn to read different types of maps and to use map keys and map symbols.  They will even get to make their own maps!  They are very excited to switch classes for science too.  If you have any questions about science, please contact Ms. Brennan at

Our religion lessons this week will focus on the beginning of Jesus's public ministry.  The children will talk about ways that they can follow the example of the disciples and share God's love through their words and actions.  Our school's opening Mass will be on Wednesday at 8:45.  All are welcome to join us!

I hope that everyone has a great week.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
