If due date is not specified, it is due on the next school day.

It is recommended that students read for 30 minutes daily, and review math facts (addition facts to 20, or multiplication tables) every week. The students are all meant to be typing up to 30 minutes per week, which may be done in 10 minute sessions 3x each week.

Christian Education:  Reflect on examples to answer, "Can disabilities bring blessings?"   Students will be asked to write their reflections tomorrow and finish by Wednesday.  If anyone wishes to respond in speaking form, a short video answer is fine.  A script instead of a paragraph, or a dramatization of an example is fine too.  The more examples, or the more depth and breadth of one example, the better.

Science: Tell about the path of oxygen (and CO2) through both the respiratory system and the blood through the circulatory system.


English: Return The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.  Online Audiobook link is below.

Math:  Recite multiples of 6 to 60 (and review 3s and 4s once more)


Sacred Heart School is happy to welcome the students and parents to our Catholic faith community and Class 5A of the 2019-2020 school year!

The class page/website will be used for sharing information that is relevant to students and parents.  I hope to celebrate our achievements and support parent involvement through the "Current skills and focuses' page that will help answer the "What did you do at school today?" question, as well as the homework updates, prayers and important dates.

The theme of this year is "I can do all things through Christ - Philippians 4:13."  We will be practicing our Christian virtues in showing how we can be Christ-like through His example and grace.  1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 reminds us that we need to be patient, kind, selfless, truthful, hopeful, persevering and forgiving.  That is the love we will strive to show in our daily lives. 

The students promised to...

  • be good listeners,
  • be kind and use encouraging words only,
  • show teamwork by working well together,
  • use time wisely and stay focused,
  • work hard and put a lot of effort into learning,
  • not interrupt when others are speaking,
  • be open to the ideas of others,
  • have self-discipline and personal responsibility,
  • show patience,
  • and more. 

I am so grateful to be teaching and growing in this community.  The children are blessings, each one of them.
