Grade 1

Week of October 11 – 15

Hello Grade One Families!

As we come to this Thanksgiving weekend, I am filled with gratitude for the many blessings in my life including the opportunity to work with your amazing children who bring me so much joy everyday. I am grateful for their reverence for prayer and our learning in Catholic Education as they deepen their relationship with Jesus; for their curiosity as they practice being autumn scientists and show joy in their discoveries; their patience with each other as they develop their friendship and cooperation skills; their willingness to share their ideas and opinions; and so many more ways that make me so blessed to be able to help to facilitate their learning this school year. I am also grateful all of the parent support, cooperation and understanding!

Please note the following for the upcoming week: 

Monday ~ Thanksgiving Day!

  • no school


  • school resumes (please remember that we begin promptly at 8:45am so earlier is better!)


  • all Walkathon pledge forms and money are due today ~ thank-you!
  • PE class ~ PE strip is needed


  • Mass at 9:00am ~ full uniform including sweaters please


  • PE class ~ PE strip is needed
  • Fukuroku hot lunch for those who ordered ~ please send cutlery as usual

Please email me at with any questions or concerns that you may have. Please note that on the weekend I check emails on Sunday (or in this case Monday) evening. Thank-you for your understanding!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a fantastic long weekend and week ahead!

Mrs. Kelly 🙂
