Thanksgiving Break

Weekly Workers:  

IXL- none due to a very short week

Report Cards- Report Cards are in your child’s backpack today.  Please sign and return the envelope empty on Monday.

Khan Academy- In report card envelopes, each child has been given their own log in for a math website called Khan Academy.  I know some students have their own account, but I do ask that they use the account I set up for them so that I can track their progress.  Starting in December students will begin to have both IXL and Khan Academy requirements each week.  Please be looking for this in the weekly newsletters.

Math Homework Packets: Students will not be bringing home a homework packet on Monday.  They will be combining the week of Nov. 13th and Nov. 20th.  This homework packet will come home on Monday, Nov. 27th.

5th Grade November Prayers: This month, students need to recite the following prayers – Prayer for Peace & Guardian Angel  (Testing is on November 30th)

PRAYER FOR PEACE (St. Francis Assisi)
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy. Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.


Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God's love commits me here,
ever this day be at my side,
to light and guard, to rule and guide.
