Grade 5

Week of June 10 – 14

Hi Grade 5 Families,

It was a short but sweet week. We finished up our CISVA Track Meets and got to meet with our Fun Day teams for the first time this week! I also wanted to thank you for the wonderful birthday gift! I truly appreciate the thought and effort that went into it!

Our featured image this week is from Miss Guevara’s sample of a Saint Bio Box/Talking Tub on St. Therese of Lisieux. As a final Christian Ed project, the children have picked a saint they wanted to learn more about. To show their research, they have to gather artifacts, books and images that represent various aspects of the saint’s life. It’ll be great to see what they come up with when they present on Wednesday!
