January 16-20

Dear Grade Four Families,

This week, we wil continue to focus on our FSA preparations.  The children will be writing narrative stories in class, practicing on math story problems, and continuing with the reading comprehension units for Home Reading.  Students will be assigned 3 units each night from Monday to Friday.  They may have the weekend to catch up if they need to. Students must bring their reading comprehension units to school on Mondays for marking.  Home Reading logs must still be handed in on Mondays as well.  

Speech Arts

Thank you for speaking to your child about the Speech Arts Festival. For the students who have chosen to participate, I will hand out the Bible Readings for them to practice this week.  I will also attach the criteria so they are aware of what the judges are looking for.  They must practice all 4 readings.  The in-class festival date will be announced once I can find another teacher to judge the students.  This judge will bring the list down to the top 10 students.  Then, the top 10 will go through a second round where they will be judge by another panel of judges.  These judges will then pick the top 4 students to represent St. Paul School at the Tri-School Speech Arts festival that will be held on March 9 at Sacred Heart School.

New Drop-Off and Pick-Up procedures

Please read Mrs. Moorehead's letter carefully regarding the new procedure.  Construction of the new parish will be happening starting tomorrow.  Your patience and full cooperation in following the new procedure is most appreciated!  Our class will be waiting in the back parking lot during pick up time.  Only students with siblings in Kindergarten or Grade One are allowed to be picked up by the covered area.  Please make sure your child knows where they will be picked up before they leave for school in the morning.  Thank you in advance for your help in this matter.
