6th grade continues to be off to a great start! I apologize for my absence last Thursday. I had a medical emergency with my dad. He has been very ill the past few months. He has Parkinson's Disease which brings many complications. Please keep him in your prayers! Please also pray for my mom, as she is his primary caregiver. I feel so blessed to have such a great school family, of whom I can ask for prayers in times of need.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Homework help: Please be prompt in picking up your child, as the teachers sometimes have appointments scheduled following homework help. Students who are not picked up on time will be sent to extended care, and a fee will be assessed. Sixth grade homework help will be in Mrs. Wennberg's room on Mondays and Wednesdays and in Mrs. Lorenzi's room on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Sometimes appointments may arise where we will need to trade days.
Thank you to all who served at the Catholic Charities Dinner. It is so wonderful to have our students giving of themselves to serve others and truly living their faith!
Reminder: If you have not yet sent in $5 for your child's Time for Kids subscription (6th grade only), and are able to do so, please send it in as soon as possible so that these can be ordered. It is a great addition to our reading program and a great way for our students to learn about current events while improving their reading skills.
Camp notes were sent home on Wednesday, August 17. Please return these by September 19. If your child takes any medication, you will need to a form (included in the packet) signed by a his/her doctor. If your chlld uses an inhaler, even if it is not very often, please plan on sending it to camp.
Two adorable kittens looking for a home.....They would love to go to the same home if possible. Also, their mother is available as well. Currently they are at my parents' home. One of their cats had this adorable cat family. They are darling, but it is simply too much for my parents to keep them at this time. They are very cute and playful and looking for a "furever" home. Just think, you could have them in time to get them blessed at the Blessing of the animals. We currently refer to them as "Aly" and "Simone," like the American Olympic gymnasts. They enjoy walking on the bricks lining the flower beds.....they seem to be quite good at balance beam! But of course, you could name them whatever you choose. They are already eating cat food and are ready to cuddle up with you. Please let Mrs. Lorenzi know if you are interested.
