Tests next week:  Students will test over chapter 3 in social studies.  A study guide is in today’s folder and the class has been reminded to take home their social studies books. This test will be Tuesday the 12th.

A test over the Rosary will be taken on Wednesday the 13th.  Students will look at a diagram of the Rosary that has numbers pointing at certain stop points and list what prayer is said at those places.  They will also need to list what the 5 events are for each mystery of the Rosary.  Students should reread and memorize the Rosary section of their Mary, Queen of Peace poster.   If they do not have their poster accessible, there are many online sites devoted to the Rosary that they can use to help them study.


Spelling words next week are from Unit 1, chapters 1-3 in religion.

divine sacred sacrament

revelation providence stewardship

scripture Messiah baptism

tradition covenant creation

The test will be on Friday the 15th.


Pageant Practice times:  Whole school practice for the Nativity play will be Thursday at 1:30 and Monday (Dec. 18th) at 8:15.    




Christmas Pageant and Band Holiday Concert:  Preparations are underway for the annual presentation of the Nativity on December 19th.  All choir students will have a part in the play.  Fifth grade will be “Townspeople”.  Students should bring clothing that will help them look similar to how Mary and Joseph would have dressed.  Students should arrive in costume, but may bring seasonal (Christmas) clothing to wear for the class Christmas party.

Band students will  be performing in Marian Hall at 9:45  They will be playing seasonal pieces with a more secular theme.  Band students should wear a solid red, white, or green collared shirt with nice jeans, khakis, or solid colored pants.  Bringing extra clothing to participate in the Christmas Pageant is optional for band students.


Class Party:  We will have our class Christmas party immediately after the band concert until 11:45.  We will watch holiday movies or animated specials and have snacks.  Please contact Michelle Lewis if you would like to donate food or drink items for our party.
