The time is always right to do what is right.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Vocabulary & Spelling Tests:  We DID NOT take the Unit 11 tests today.  Many of the students really took their time on the social studies test, and we used the time after Fr. Dexter’s visit to finish.  I felt that it would be a better time to do the Unit 11 vocabulary and spelling tests next Tuesday. With the students working so hard on  the social studies test, I did not want them to feel rushed or get anxious that they had one more test to do. I will not assign a new vocabulary unit next week.  Students only need to freshen up for the Unit 11 tests on Tuesday at 10:30.

Religion Unit 1:  There will be a vocabulary quiz next Friday for chapters 1-3.  Also, students were introduced to the prayer “Act of Faith” this week.  They should practice at home and a fill-in-the-blank quiz will go along with the Unit 1 quiz.  I will give students a list of the vocabulary words and a copy of the prayer Monday. The test will be at 1:20.  


  • There is no school tomorrow, Jan. 18th or Monday, Jan. 21st.

  • The permission form for students to attend the All School Mass with Bishop Spalding needs to be signed and returned next week.
