Grade 5

Week of February 22nd – 26th

Hi Grade 5 Families,

This week marked the beginning of our Lenten season, with Ash Wednesday Mass. For the next 40 days we will do our best to partake in the various forms of sacrifice; Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving. This week, we look forward to a full week along with Pink Shirt Day on Wednesday.

Our featured image is from our Valentine’s Day Activity – an Unlock the Box Challenge. In pairs, the children find and solve various math word problems to find a code; which will help them locate a key to unlock the mystery box. It is fun way for us to build on our math skills, while engaging in some friendly competition!
