Welcome to our class homepage. Here, you will be able to access important information such as students' homework, online handouts (ie: Weekly News), important upcoming events each week, and online resources that can enhance student learning of concepts in various subjects.
The theme of this year is 'What do You want of me, Lord?' We will adopt this message in our classroom as we continue to learn about the teachings of Christ, and follow his example through our acts of kindness and service in the community.
I look forward to helping you achieve your learning goals this year.

The Weekly News promotes students' interest in local and global issues in the form of a weekly article designed for their reading level.
