Social Studies News
The students are beginning a new unit in social studies, we are studying the geopgrpahy, history, government, and economy of our great state of Arizona. This unit will prepare us for our field trip to the state capital in February. The tests for this unit will consist of a series vocabulary words. The students will write down the words along with the definitions in class, this will be their study guide. A good way for them to study is to make "old school" flash cards or they can make flash cards on Quizlet. We will also creat a virtual Tour of Arizona that I will share on this website for all families to view.
Saint Report - The students will research a saint of their choice, write a report, create their own prayer card, and present their report to the class. The project is due on Monday, October 30. Students have research packet and may work on this at home. As a class we will visit the library twice to do our research. The student do need to type their report; they may need your assistance here.
Dismissal Times - PLEASE READ!
- Parents, please log in to RenWeb this week to ensure your pick up list and family contact info is up to date. If you have not been able to get on to RenWeb, please let me know and I will send the directions home with your child.
- If your child is going home with someone other than parents, please email me directly. Your child's safety is important to me and having this communication from you is greatly appreciated!

Our classroom will be a nut-free classroom due to the many food allergies. The children will snack in the classroom. I am asking that the children's snacks do not have any nuts in them. Foods that have nuts may be eaten at lunch as children with allergies will be seated at a allergen free table.
A note from Nurse Sirven regarding birthday celebrations:
Dear New and Returning Parents,
Our school follows the Diocesan School Wellness Policy. When your child has a birthday that you want to celebrate with the class, please ask your teacher what is appropriate. Snacks must have minimal sugar, so please no cupcakes, brownies, cookies, candy or any sweets with high sugar content.
In addition, due to the diverse multitude of children with food allergies all snacks need to be store-bought and packaged with an ingredient label. Creative non-food celebrations such as new pencils, erasers or anything you find in the party section of the store are just as fun.
Thank you for working together with us!
