  Newsletter week of Oct.27-31, 2014

We had a great week.  The end of the 1st quarter is on Friday October 31.  It is hard to believe it went so fast.  One down three to go!!!!! Our class will have its first class party on the 31st!  Halloween is a regular school uniform day.  No Halloween costumes or dress down day clothes are to be worn.  However, because it is the date that we are celebrating All Saints’ Day at school, children may dress as their favorite saint if they choose to.  If your child chooses to dress as a saint, please have them wear their outfit over the gym uniform and be prepared to share a little bit about his or her chosen saint.  On Monday we will have a reading test on what do Illustrators Do.  Wednesday will be a science test chap. 12.  Shortly conference paper will be coming home, if you are unable to attend let me know and we will set something up. Holy Family students have the opportunity to help some area families have more to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!  The lunch ladies are again donating turkeys for needy families.  We are asking students to bring in specific food donations for the Nov 20th dress down day collection, enabling us to make up festive baskets with all the trimmings to go along with the turkeys. 3A – can of vegetables  

  Thank you for your help.  Thank you for all you do Jesus and Mary love you and so do I!!!!!   Love, Mrs. K
