Grade 5

Week of June 7th – 11th

Hi Grade 5 Families,

Last week, we had the wonderful opportunity to attend Mass again with Father Smith, but it was extra special because we were able to celebrate Mass inside the church! Now that BC Health Orders are allowing Worship Services again, we can officially attend inside the church. It was a great feeling, just like coming home! This week we look forward to a visit from a Cellist in Music Class, the opportunity to partake in Confession and a Fukuroku Hot Lunch!

Reminder that Walkathon Pledges and Cheques are due on Monday, June 7th!

Our featured image is from our Prayer Mantis Inquiry. Each day, a student chooses a friend or two to help them feed fruit flies to the Praying Mantis outside. However, this past week was extra exciting as we actually got to witness two Praying Mantis fighting – once the few classmates told us what was happening, we all rushed outside to see! (We previously learned that if Praying Mantis are left in the same space for a long period, they will start to eat each other!)
