I hope that everyone enjoyed the Holiday. It is always nice to break away from the daily routine, and be able to spend extra time with our families and friends. This week we will take time to recognize National Cancer Awareness Week. Each class has chosen a certain color to wear which represents a different kind of cancer. It is so wonderful to see our school community reach out in support of so many. Together, we are “Rooted in Heart.”
Please be sure to join us this coming Sunday, October 20 for our Family Mass at 10:00. Our 7th and 3rd graders will host the mass, but we would love to see everyone there. Coming together as a school family for mass is always a great way to end our week together, and begin a new one.
Today, our 5th graders participated in a retreat on being themselves. It was a great day for reflection and talking about who they truly are. Our classes also continue to work on learning about “Respect.” Please be sure to have a conversation with your child/ren about what they are learning in class and especially in their Religion classes.
Tomorrow, we will take part in National ShakeOut Day. Millions of people worldwide will practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On during Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills. 2019 is the 12th ShakeOut (which began in Southern California in 2008) and the 30th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake here in the Bay Area.
LOOK WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE CLASSROOM:
PE- The 6th – 8th graders are going to be running the mile. Grades 3-5 will run the half mile, and grades K-2 will be running the quarter mile.
SPANISH – Included in this blast is a newsletter from Señora Blum which gives a “snapshot” of what each class is focusing on. Be sure to read it!!
Have a great week,
