Grade 5

Week of November 16th – 20th

Hi Grade 5 Families!

This week, thanks to the efforts of Mr. Kirkham and the Grade 7s, we had a reflective Remembrance Day, virtual “assembly”. We hope that you were able to view the video that we watched and had a restful mid-week break. We also had a wonderful opportunity to partake in the sacrament of Reconciliation this past Friday. Much like the weekly, class Masses, Father Smith and Father Joseph have made themselves available for weekly confessions with each grade! This week, we look forward to Dress Down Day & a Pro-D Day!

Our featured image this week is our Remembrance Day art for the hallway display downstairs. Using oil pastels, we created poppies inspired by the styles of poppies all over the world.
