Grade 5

Week of October 28th – November 1st

Hello Grade 5 Families!

The children did a great job leading the school at Mass this week! Whether it was reading, singing, offertory or being extra responsible and being a big buddy to 2 or 3 little buddies; they all did a fantastic job!

Our featured image this week is from our field trip to the Richmond Olympic Oval! We had a wonderful time exploring the simulations and learning about the Olympics at the ROX Museum and had a lot of fun playing the team building games on the courts! I will upload photos onto ClassDojo soon!
