Dear Parent/Guardian(s):

Welcome May! It is very nice to see so many wonderful signs of Spring! The children are excited to be spending more time outdoors and enjoying the beautiful weather! 

Please continue to send in refillable water containers, as the students tend to become more thirsty in warmer temperatures.  We are in need of paper towel and tissue for our classroom.  If you could spare some that would be greatly appreciated. 

Catholic Education Week runs from May 6 to May 11. The theme is ‘Renewing the Promise.’  We will be doing various activities throughout the week and month about this theme. 

The following is a list of learning goals for the following subjects this month:

Religion: We will be celebrating the beauty of Mother Mary.  Our Rosary Apostolate leads our school in a lovely crowning of Mary celebration. 

Language: Poems/Songs of the Week, daily reading and writing, reading responses, group discussions, nouns, verbs, compound words, and contractions. We are continuing to enhance our writing skills.  For example, including more detail in our writing, correct spelling, spacing and proper letter formation etc..

Math: 2-D Geometry and Applications. We will also begin estimating large numbers by grouping them into tens and finding number patterns in the hundreds chart. 

Science: Study of plants, needs and characteristics and study the nature around us. 

Social Studies: Community helpers, their place and importance in our community. 

I wish all of you a wonderful Mother’s Day!

If you have any questions and concerns, please contact me at any time.

Yours in Catholic Education,

Ms. Moore
