April's Virtue: Grace

*We've begun preparing for Communion on Saturday, May 11th at 1:00pm!  Some reminders:

-Please be sure the children are attending Mass each week in order to practice the use of all the responses in the Liturgy of the Eucharist.  These are listed on the Sacrament Preparation sheet under "Resources".  All responses for Liturgy of the Word should already be known & used from Reconciliation.  
-I'd like for the children to go back to confession a week or 2 prior to Communion Day.  The dates & times are listed under "Calendar".
-A Communion fee of $15 is due by April 8th.  Communion banners are available for an additional $10.  These are optional, but are nice way to commemorate the day.  While they can be used for pictures before/after the ceremony, they may not be displayed in the Cathedral.


- Please label ALL clothing (hats, gloves, coats, sweatshirts).
-While Pickup Patrol is used to report your child's absence on a given day.  A written absent note STILL needs to be submitted on the day they return.  
-After lunch DEAR time books need to be changed each week.  Books can be from home or school library, but should last a week.  I've noticed many picture books that are fun to read, but are too simple and not grade appropriate.

-IXL logging in for specific skills is being assigned for HW.  Keep your log in info in a safe place.

-It's also good practice to log into ThinkCentral on Thursdays to review our weekly story prior to the test. 
-Only a school gym sweatshirt or school button sweater may be worn if your child is cold in the classroom.

*DISMISSAL PROCEDURES:  Pickup Patrol is to be used to report all absences and changes to dismissal. Absence reporting must be made through the app by 9 A.M. All changes to your child’s normal dismissal must also be completed by 2 P.M. through  Pickup Patrol as well.

*No toys, crafts, or sports equipment may be brought from home

*Home access has been given to Think Central (Go Math & Journeys).  This is great for extra practice in math, reviewing our weekly story, or for printing pages when your child is absent or the page is forgotten.  The direct link can be found under Resources.
Forgotten math HW or out sick?  Here are the new printing instructions for ThinkCentral: Think Central Printing Directions.docx


     In order to learn & have fun as a member of Class 2-4, I promise to be responsible by: doing my work in a timely way, listening to others, not talk when anyone else is, keep my hands to myself, take care of my things, be respectful, include others, and treat everyone kindly.  I CAN DO THIS!
