Fresh Grade

A notice was sent home last month regarding Fresh Grade.  I am setting up our class profile and hoping that we can get started with using this new app.  Please check for an email inviting you to join Fresh Grade to access your child’s portfolio.  Please be patient with me as I am still learning to use this app.

Holy Thursday 

Most students came to school with their bag for tomorrow’s Holy Thursday Retreat.  For those that did not, we provided a plastic bag so they can begin packing the materials needed for the activities tomorrow.  If you have not already done so, please remember to send your child with a water bottle and a plain bun or bread (this will be their snack for the day).  Also, please note that tomorrow is a noon dismissal.

Good Friday & Easter Monday

Just a reminder that there is no school on Friday and Monday.


Have a Blessed Holy Week and a Happy Easter!

Parent Volunteers

We are looking for more parent volunteers to help with our Aladdin costumes.  We have enough parents to help with decorating the shirts.  However, the grade ones will now have a second part as peacocks.  We will need a few parents to help with the peacock costume.  We will be making masks and a couple tutus.  This is something that can be done at home as it is mostly just tracing, cutting and gluing.  Please leave me a note in the planner tomorrow if you are able to help with this.

Holy Thursday Retreat

An email was sent out yesterday from the office regarding the Holy Thursday Retreat.  Students are asked to bring a plastic/reusable bag with the following items:

  • water bottle (for drinking)
  • empty toilet roll (I have extras in the classroom if you don’t have this)
  • bread or a plain bun (this will be their snack for the day)

There are other items we will be putting in the bags.  If possible, please send your child to school with the bag tomorrow so we can start packing the other items and prepare for Thursday.

Shirts for Aladdin

There are still a few students that have not brought in their shirt for Aladdin.  Please send the shirt to school tomorrow as they will be sent home with our parent volunteer for decorating soon.

Reading Log

I decided to give the students a real break and pause on the Reading Log during Spring Break.  If your child would like to continue reading through Spring Break, they are welcome to do so.  It will not be necessary to record it in the Reading Log.

Speech Arts

Several students in our class decided to try out for the individual portion of the Speech Arts Competition.  Markeisha was one of the students selected to move on and represent our school in the Bible reading category for the Archbishop Carney Speech Arts Competition.  It is with great pleasure to announce that she received a Silver ranking!  Congratulations on your achievement Markeisha!

Aladdin Costume

A couple months ago, a notice went home about the costumes for the Aladdin play.  Students were to bring in their t-shirt for decorating by February 23.  I have not received t-shirts from all the students yet.  If you have not already done so, please make sure your child returns to school with the t-shirt after Spring Break.


I am looking for a few parent volunteers to help with decorating our class’ t-shirts for Aladdin.  Please let me know if you are available to help after Spring Break.

Hot Lunch

Calhoun’s will not be delivering hot lunch on Monday, March 26th.  Please make sure you send your child to school with lunch on that day.


Sorry it took me awhile to get this up but here is the March Show and Tell Schedule and Newsletter.

Have a Great Spring Break!  God Bless!
