Dear Families, 

I hope that everyone had a great weekend.  We have another busy week ahead.  It's hard to believe that it is the last week of the second trimester!  Spring is just around the corner!

This week we will be finishing chapter 8 in math.  The children will continue practicing identifying fractions as part of a whole and as part of a group.  They will also keep working on fractions greater than one.  Please use the review sheet that will be sent home on Monday to prepare for the test that is on Thursday.

We will be reading "The Albertosaurus Mystery" this week.  The children will be learning about how fossils have helped paleontologists draw conclusions about the albertosaurus, but also how difficult their work is because there are so many unanswered questions.  There will be an extra credit project about dinosaurs given this week too!  Last week's cooking show projects were awesome!

We are finishing up the chapter in social studies that introduced ways that inventions changed cities and communities.  I am looking forward to seeing all of the invention projects.  Please remember that if your project is finished early it can be sent in early.  We will not be having a test on this chapter.  The children will do a classwork activity and the project will be their grade for the chapter.  

This week in religion we will be learning about vocations.  The children will learn that people are called to serve the Church and others in many ways, some through married or single life, some as priests or deacons, and some in religious life.  We will also have a visit from Deacon Bob who will share some of his experiences as a deacon.  

Please remember to look at the list of Lenten activities for our Growing With Jesus flowers.  We look forward to seeing those flowers returned during Holy Week for our classroom Easter garden!

I hope that everyone has a great week!
