November Virtue - Charity
Keep me, O God, from pettiness; let me be large in thought, in word, in deed. Let me be done with fault-finding and self-seeking. May I put away all pretense and meet everyone face to face without self-pity and without prejudice. May I never be hasty in judgment and always generous. Let me take time for all things. Make me grow calm, serene and gentle. Teach me to put into action my better impulses, straightforward and unafraid. Grant that I may realize it is the little things of life that create differences and that in the big things of life we are one. And, O Lord God, let me not forget to be kind!
The children will be demonstrating this virtue through acts of kindness.  Each morning a member of the Junior Honor Society will read a daily tip on how to spread kindness!
10/17/17 - The algebra textbooks have been distributed to every student.

Great article on how a parent's math anxiety can be easily passed on to their child:

Students should be checking this website/google classroom daily to ensure that their class notes are up-to-date.

They should also be checking the HW answer key each day that is posted daily.  This is a great way for each student to keep up with the material and to check in detail if their HW is correct.  This is key to a successful year.

Welcome to Mrs. Kelly's website. I have been teaching for a total of 12 years, 7 at St.Agnes(3 years in 6th grade and 4 years in 8th grade) I have been married for 35 wonderful years to my husband Jim. Together we have raised 3 great daughters, Ellen,Emma, and Gwen.
I have lots of favorite sayings, but I think this one sums up a philosophy necessary to succeed in Algebra "Never, never, never give up'" Winston Churchhill
