Math: We will begin working on test taking strategies (every other day) during our math period. The days we review test taking strategies, the students will have no math homework.

Cinco de Mayo: We will celebrate Cinco de Mayo with the 5th grade class. We will be making piñatas.

Wednesday: We will need as many parent volunteers as possible on Wednesday during the lunch period. The teachers will have their Teacher Appreciation Lunch on this day.

Friday: We will have mass at 10am. Students will need to wear their uniform. NO spirit dress.

Follies/Auction: Friday (5/7) is our Follies at 6pm at the Good Shepherd Parish Hall. After the Follies, will be the silent and live auction. Each of the classes have created an item to be auctioned off. The Kindergarten class has decorated a flower pot with their fingerprints. I will upload a photo. The teachers will also auction off time outside of the classroom with them. I will be taking the highest bidder to lunch and color me mine on Friday, May 21 after school.

Word Group: Since this is a short week, the students will take the word group test home on Friday to complete at home.
