“Sainthood is not a privilege for a few, but a vocation for us all.”

I hope everyone had a good and restful weekend.  Here is some information for the week to follow:

Christmas Store: If your child did not bring money for the Christmas store, they can bring money in tomorrow and we will try our very best to give them a chance to go.  However, there is not guarantee that they will get to go.

Book Report Info! The rubric that we are using for the diorama portion of the project has been sent home.  Your child is to select his or her favorite scene from their book report book and recreate it inside a shoe box.  This is the creative part of the assignment. You can choose almost any material to use.  The box must be covers (wrapping paper, construction paper, spray paint, etc).  There must be two characters in the shoe box (legos, small action figures, clay, paper cut outs, etc).  The background must look like the setting in the book. If you are struggling with ideas, Google and Pintrest can be great help!  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me. Due on December 11, 2018 (if you finish the project early it can be brought to school whenever your child finishes.

Math: As we get deeper into multiplication please practice with your child at home.  We have completed the 0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 facts last week and we will be testing this week.  IXL is a good way to practice and they can do any lesson that is highlighted in yellow.  Just a reminder, if you are logging into IXL through the internet and not the app, @btcs needs to be added to the end of their username ex: duncan@btcs.  Another good way to practice is by doing flash cards.

Re-take Tests: If you would like your child to retake a test, please review the content with them over the weekend.  Then sign and return the test and write “Re-take” on the top so that I know your child is ready to test again.
