Greetings 4A Families!
I hope this post finds you all relaxed from fall break! I can’t wait to catch up with the kids to find out about their adventures. I had a lovely time with my daughter in Arkansas, and got caught up with some old friends as well.
We have a busy week ahead.
Tuesday, Oct. 15 : Blessing of the Stuffed Animals in chapel – Students are encouraged to bring one small or medium sized stuffed animal to school to be blessed.
Thursday, Oct. 17: Tucson Orchestra Wind Quartet – 10:45 – 11:45 in the Parish Center.
Friday, Oct. 18th : Grandparents Day – Please let your child know if they will be having a grandparent or special friend visit on this day. We will be doing an activity together and I want to make sure I have the right amount of supplies and seating.
Grandparents Day Schedule
7:30 – 8:00 am – Check-in: breakfast and coffee in the gym
8:05 – Upper School performance & welcome from Mr. Sullivan
8:45 – 9:45 – Classroom visit.

This week we will be working on division with remainders, division strategies, and relating multiplication and division within word problems.
- Reading: We will begin reading Strider, the sequel to Dear Mr. Henshaw. During our work with the novel we will be focusing on figurative language, and point of view.
- Spelling: Spelling words have been uploaded on Spellingcity.com. We will be working on words that make the long e sound.
- Writing: Over the next couple weeks we will be working on writing a narrative essay. We will kick this off by creating a storyboard to guide our writing.
This week we will be distinguishing regions of the United States and reading maps to help answer questions. This will lead into our study of the Southwest in the coming weeks.
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
