Today, the students and I spent some time getting to know each other. We had an excellent day with no issues. Thank you to all the parents who came and greeted me. It was nice to meet you all. For those parents unable to make it, I look forward to seeing you soon.
Math: March Break Transformational Geometry packet if not completed
Spelling: Study Lesson #22 Book E or Book F for test Tuesday March 27th
Tomorrow is Sibling Picture Day. Please ensure students are in their full dress uniform
For Math we worked on a coordinate grid mystery puzzle and I gave March Break Transformational Geometry packets to those who were away. Any student who has not completed their March Break Math Homework will need to work on it tonight for homework.
We began our new UOI unit called "Vote. It's the Right Thing to Do!" by examining our newspaper articles. First, we did a "Think, Pair, Share" and the students discussed what country their article was from, what type of government was shown and what similarities or differences there were. Then the students meet back in their table groups to share their results. The group secretary is creating a chart with the different aspects of each government and the presenter will share those with the class tomorrow. Then our articles will be stapled to our bulletin board to create a collage background for our new unit.
Lastly, students are coming home with marking that Ms. Khan completed. The UOI duo-tangs do not need to come back. Please return spelling books.
As a reminder: St.Jude's Academy is now affiliated with an official soccer club called St. Jude's FC. Students of St.Jude are given a 33% discount that will allow them to join the club and play competitively with other soccer clubs this spring and summer (starting most likely April to September). The students will be working with excellent coaches and going to competitions on the weekend. Practices will be held (most likely) right after school twice a week. In April, besides the soccer field, the students will have a chance to play in our official soccer dome! I think this is a great opportunity!! The students have been given forms (I can e-mail extras), they should try to submit the form as soon as possible.
