Fifth grade is off and running for the school year. The students are enjoying our first novel Dear Mr. Henshaw and are excited to write to an author of their choosing like the main character does. We have become scientists with a couple of experiments this year that got the students thinking about the world around us. Father John led us in the blessing of our class pilgrimage image and our first Chaplet of the Divine Mercy for the year. Students are eager to take our statue home and share the image and prayers with their families. We are all excited for the concepts and activities we will be learning and working with this school year.
