Welcome to 2016
I hope you all had a spiritual Christmas and a fun-filled New Year. Did you get enough rest these last two weeks? Please bring a pack of baby wipes (not Clorox wipes) to class with you when you return. Thank you!
School does indeed reopen on TUE JAN 5, not MON. If you sang in the Christmas Eve choir, you have free dress today.
On THU JAN 7, Deacon Mark will be hosting Altar Server training from 1:30-2:30pm. You need a permission slip to attend, so see me if you want one to take home and get signed.
We will have a School Mass on FRI JAN 8, so everyone comes in full uniform. It is not a half day even though it’s the first FRI of the month.
Keep in touch with me via Edmodo. All students should already be members of my group. See me if you are not. Parents, please send me an email if you’d like to join the Parent group within Edmodo and I’ll send you an invite. Your child can also invite you to the group.
iPad apps to download (so far) include: Duolingo, Spelling City, Google Drive, Stock Market Game, Yahoo Finance, iPad Calculator, Edmodo, Handouts, The Pope App, and Liturgical Calendar.
Continue to check Gradelink for the latest on your grades. We recommend you do this weekly at minimum. With several teachers giving you grades, it can be more challenging to keep track of your progress. Gradelink solves this problem. Parent homework… if you have not already done so, please log in to your family Gradelink account and click EnrollMe.
