Chess Club Notes!

We are still looking for volunteers to help out at chess club. Please email if you are interested!
Classroom Highlights
The kindergarteners got to play with their sixth grade buddies this morning! They always look forward to getting to hang out with their “big” friends. It is hard to tell who enjoys playing with the toys more....the kindergarteners or the sixth graders!
5th Grade
The fifth graders are busy doing a literacy study on the historical fiction book Number the Stars by Lois Lowry. This book gives a glimpse of some of the challenges and courage that happened during WWII and the German occupation of Denmark. Students will spend time reading, questioning, writing and sharing about the book. 
Please join us for Catholic Schools Week Masses!
Saturday, January 25th at 5pm
