Dear 4th graders and families,

We have been very hard at work on our school wide newspaper for the month of February. Check it out:


The Human Body projects reflected effort and provided the class with many tips on how to be healthy and take care of their bodies. We have started to prepare for Terra Nova testing that will take place at the end of March.

It's hard to believe but Ash Wednesday is this week. The class will attend the 8:00 Mass and receive ashes. During Lent we will attend the 8:00 Mass every Thursday and Stations of the Cross every Friday.

Please make every effort to attend the Home and School meeting this Thursday "GSC by the Numbers." Items and activities will be auctioned off. Doors open at 6:00. I will not give HW on this evening in order to free up some time for parents.

*Please ask your child if they need any school supplies that they are need of. Quite a few students are missing some essentials like pencils, hi lighters etc and DRY ERASER markers. Thanks!
