Students are now counting down to the last few week of the school year. Soon, they will be on a well-deserved break. But before that, children will be busy practicing for the spring play, addressing all subject areas, and preparing to take the STAR test.
Please make sure that your child spends at least 20 minutes in Khan Academy working on math, 20 minutes on Scoot Pad ELA, and 20 minutes on Scoot Pad math. Spending time in the online programs will prepare children and therefore score higher on STAR. I can also see the data based on student performance. The skills performed, how well they performed, and areas they need to improve on.
Parents, if your child has an acting role in the “Beauty and the Beast” musical, you need to start looking for the costume that he or she will wear. Students who do not have an acting role in the play will still be part of the play and will dance and sing. These students will dress up as villagers. A letter went home last week with the pictures of costumes. Please see inside your child’s folder.
Don’t forget to send flowers for the Virgin Mary this coming Monday. If your child brought flowers last Friday, you do not have to send any more. Thank you in advance.
Beginning May 30, children will be taking final exams. They need to start preparing for tests. The subject areas they will test on will be reading, social studies, religion, vocabulary, and math. Please make sure that your child prepares. Every day, your child is assigned a study session in social studies, vocabulary, or reading. Please follow up at home.
Parents, this coming Friday after mass there will be a “Family Fun Day championship” Students will be having lots of fun. Make sure that your child wears formal uniform for mass. After mass, children may change in their P. E shorts and purple color shirt. Don’t forget!!! On this day, there is a corn meal sale for $4.00. This meal includes a corn dog, chips, and a soda or water. If you would like your child to order, send the $4.00 this coming Monday, no later than that.
Lastly, I want to remind you about the $5.00 charity contribution. Thank you in advance and thanks to the children who brought it. This is our charity for the year and this is how we help children in need.

Monday- Vocabulary, unit 14 test.
