Grade 5

Week of April 8 – 12

Hi Grade 5 Families,

We started off the week with a little April Fools’ Day fun! The teachers decided to switch classrooms for the morning! I went (back) to the Kindergarten, while Miss Ramirez taught the 5s for the morning! I heard they had a lot of fun ūüôā This week, we’re looking forward to leading the Morning Masses as we head into our 5th week of Lent, just before Holy Week!

Our featured image this week is from our Destination Imagination Teams! We love to support each other, in everything we do. A job well done goes out to the DI Team and the volunteer parents, for all their hard work! Congratulations on competing – and placing none the less – in your first competition!
