Happy Memorial Day!

Dear Sixth Grade Parents and Students,

Last week’s Spirit Week was a lot of fun, especially, with the culmination of our Sports Day on Friday.  THANK YOU to all our parents who donated food and their free time to serve lunch, in order to make Sports Day so special for our students.  A GRAND TIME was had by all!  FUN! LAUGHTER! DANCING!  A special THANK YOU to Ms. Saundra and the Boone family, who organized the event, to Mr. Joey Betancourt, who played all the great music, and to Mr. Tom Satterfield, who was our wonderful M.C.

The school year is very quickly coming to an end, and we are almost finished our curriculum.  So, hang in there, Sixth Graders!  This week in literature, I will finish reading aloud A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare.  This will prepare the Sixth Graders for their play performance next year.  Twelve Sixth Graders scored A+’s on the Literary Terms Test (Part 1), last Thursday.  Well done, Sixth Graders!  Part 2 of the Literary Terms Test will be given on Thursday, May 29.  We will work on finishing the classroom workbooks this week and next week.  Many students have already completed some of their workbooks.  Your child’s work from his/her file will go home at the end of the first week in June.

This week in history, the Sixth graders will read Chapter 11, which encompasses “Chinese Society and Thought.”  The last History Test (Chapter 9) will be given on Wednesday, June 4.  This will be an open book/open notes test, so, no stress.


  • The Jazz Dance Recital is scheduled for Thursday, May 29, in the St. Francis Hall, at 1:30 p.m.  All are welcome to attend.
  • The Crowning of Mary is scheduled for Friday, May 30, directly after Mass.  All are welcome to attend.

The homework for this week is as follows:

  • Five pages in Keys to Good Language for Wednesday, May 28.
  • Prepare for the Literary Terms Test (Part 2), on Thursday, May 29.

Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him into the world. ~ Maria Montessori

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and have a very Happy Memorial Day with your families.
