Happy New Year and Welcome Back!!

I hope everyone had a very restful vacation.

**Important** 
Students who are receiving Penance- the books are due to me Monday.  I will forward them to Mrs. Kennedy.
Please be aware that on Monday each student will meet individually with one of the priests.  They will have a conversation about the Sacrament of Penance, what sin is and they will be expected to know the following four prayers
Hail Mary
Our Father
Glory Be
Act of Contrition
We have been practicing in class, but I ask that you please practice at home as well.  Due to the short week, we have no spelling this week.  Please use those minutes to practice the prayers.  Today I sent home a mini prayer book with each student that has all 4 prayers and their words.

We were very busy today,  In reading we read the decodable book "Meet the Firefights" and answered comprehension questions.  In writing we wrote about our vacations. In math we started regrouping in subtraction.  This is a bit tedious.  I encourage all students to take their time and to show ALL of the work.  In religion we worked on the prayers and what the sacrament of Penance will look like the first time we do it. 

Students enrolled in art club got letters from Mrs. Dennehy before vacation, please forward her the dues.

Friday is a half day- noon dismissal.  There will NOT be mass this Friday.  It is rescheduled for January 11.
Recess activities ( arts and crafts, yoga, legos, etc) started today.
