Catholic Schools’ Week!

Dear Sixth Grade Parents and Students,

We are asking all our families to join us on Sunday morning, January 25, at 10:00a.m., in the Serrra Center, for our annual Mass celebration in honor of Catholic Schools’ Week. We are very proud of our school, students, parents, principal/administrator, faculty, and staff. This week, we will start our Catholic Schools’ Week with a school assembly, on Monday, at 10:00a.m., in the Serra Center.  THANK YOU to all the P.T.G. parents for your planning, time, and help in making Sunday and this coming week a special celebration.

This week in literature, the Sixth Graders will finish reading Greek Gods and Heroes by Robert Graves.  They will also continue to watch Jason and the Argonauts for “Literature on DVD.” They will  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 start their study of literary terms, and continue work in their grammar and analogies workbooks. The Sixth Graders are working extremely well and are progressing very nicely in their cognitive and social development.  I am so proud of them!

On Wednesday, the Sixth Graders will take Part 1 of the History Test of Chapter 4 (Sections 1 – 3).  Therefore, there will be no Wordly Wise homework this week.  Please encourage your child to study for the History 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:

  • History notes are due on Monday, January 26.
  • Study for the History Test of Chapter 4 (Sections 1 – 3), for Wednesday, January 28.

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

Enjoy your weekend and have a grand week ahead.
