Catholic Schools’ Week!

Dear Sixth Grade Parents and Students,

THANK YOU to all the families who joined us today for our Mass celebration, in honor of Catholic Schools’ Week.  We are very proud of our school, students, parents, administrator, faculty, and staff.  This week, we will start our Catholic Schools’ Week with a school assembly in the Serra Center, on Monday, at 10:30 a.m.  THANK YOU to all the P.T.G. parents for your planning, time, and help in making today and this week special.

This week in literature, the Sixth Graders will finish reading Greek Gods and Heroes by Robert Graves.  They will continue to watch Jason and the Argonauts for “Literature on DVD,” on Thursday.  They will also continue to write a stage play with me in class, in preparation for their next writing assignment, Write a Stage Play.  They are enjoying this exercise immensely.  In addition to this, they will return to the study of literary terms, grammar, and analogies.  The Sixth Graders are working extremely well and are progressing very nicely in their cognitive and social development.  I am so proud of them!

Last Thursday, the Sixth Graders took Part 1 of the History Test of Chapter 4 (Sections 1 – 3).  There was no time to correct the tests, so we will correct the tests on Monday.  This week in history, the Sixth Graders will take Part 2 of the History Test on Thursday, January 30. Please encourage your child to study for this test.  Thank you.  In addition to this, we will continue to read Chapter 5 of the history book, which focuses on the spread of Judaism.

The homework for this week is as follows:

  • Spelling/vocabulary test of Lesson 15 in Wordly Wise for Wednesday.
  • Complete all the exercises in Lesson 15 of Wordly Wise.
  • Study for the History Test of Chapter 4 (Sections 4 – 5), for Thursday.

Reminder: You will receive the “Report Cards” this week.  If you have any questions or concerns about them, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a grand week ahead.
