Remember these times are a suggestion, not a requirement. 1-2 hours suggested.


Spirit Week

Monday, May 18:  Mask-a-thon

Show us your best mask!  With state guidelines advising us to wear masks in public, we want to see pictures of your best mask!  Are you master mask maker?  Make one or ten and donate them to our School and Parish.  There are many mask-making tutorials, including one from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  Contact Sheila Marty for drop off information.  Send pictures to Jonna Skokan of you making masks to wear and share.


Essential Standards

I will take the STAR test to show my progress in comprehension, vocabulary, and decoding skills.

 I can decode regularly spelled one-syllable words. I know final -e and common vowel team conventions for representing long vowel sounds.  I will complete this standard by completing my spelling lesson.


Write informative/explanatory texts in which they name a topic, supply some facts about the topic, and provide some sense of closure. I will practice writing and recording information for my habitat project.
