December 5-9, 2022

The ten-day countdown is on!  The students have been provided with permission slip forms for the Nativity Play next Tuesday evening in the Cathedral.  We look forward to welcoming all of our school families to enjoy this special performance.  I've attached a link to the permission slip here on our classroom page.
Asynchronous Work for December 19th and 20th will be going home soon. Assignments will be posted on Google Classroom as well as a name-labeled paper folder with hard copies of assignments.  The due date is January 9, 2023. 
The students in LA 6 are working on three separate assignments: a how-to flowchart (on Slides in Google Classroom), a descriptive writing "Advent Windows" project, and adjectives. We'll continue to spiral through these activities each day for the next two weeks.  In Reading 6, the Kestrels are finishing Elizabeth George Speare's The Bronze Bow and learning how to use quotes to establish evidence to support a theme. The Bluebirds have finished the wonderful Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie by Jordan Sonnenblick and after learning more about leukemia, presented research project slideshows about diseases to a class guest, Dr. Nguyen!  
The 7th grade is completing their reading of The Seventh Most Important Thing by Shelley Pearsall. End-of-novel projects will include a storyboard, student-made movie trailer, and written assignment. 
The sixth grade Christmas parties will be Thursday, December 15th. We are planning for a White Elephant gift exchange (this is very structured and a ton of fun) and a handout was sent home today about the activity. Additionally, if your student has a cards/board game to share while we enjoy snacks during our party, that would add to the fun without having to making a big mess!
Have a great week!
