Week of April 22 – 26

Hi Grade 5 Families,

I hope you’ve had a wonderful Easter Weekend so far! As a class, we have focused on reflection and almsgiving this past Lenten Season. In continuation with our Lenten promises, we will be partaking in Almsgiving Activities in the coming weeks! This week, we look forward to a Dress Down Day and our Student-Led Conferences!
