Grade 5

Week of November 23rd – 27th

Hi Grade 5 Families,

This past week we had a dress down day; with the kids dressed as where they would like to go after the pandemic. It was a fun way to think positive about future plans! This week is a relatively normal week! The children have started, and will continue to prepare for our Virtual Christmas Concert this year. Please look out for an email regarding the Christmas Concert, sometime this week!

Our featured image this week is the children lining up for Confession. We’re fortunate to have the opportunity to partake in the sacrament, thanks to the commitment of our priests, Father Smith and Father Joseph. Many of the children remarked that they felt a great deal of relief after!
