Grade 5

Week of February 15th – 19th

Hi Grade 5 Families,

I hope you all had a restful long weekend; with a great St. Valentines and Family Day with your loved ones! We had a short but sweet week last week – complete with a D.A.R.E. Zoom Call & Mass with Father. This week look forward to starting the Liturgical Season of Lent with Ash Wednesday!

Our featured image this week is from our Charlie and the Chocolate Factory unit! The children been immersing themselves in the world of Roald Dahl and his purposeful character names. They participated in an activity to create their own characters that would fit into the world and have tapped into their imagination to describe their character.
