Greetings….. I hope everyone has had a smooth start to the summer.
 
A few reminders……….
 
  1. We are looking for room parents. This is a great opportunity to fulfill your hours from home or work with phone calls and emails. I would like to see home/school communication about class and grade level projects and fundraising reach a new high! Just call the school and leave a message (you will be assigned to your child’s class)
  1. All students should have gone home with a study guide to be completed for the opening of school.
  1. If you have any change in plans about returning to St. Joseph’s please leave a message at your earliest convenience. As classes fill, we want to give anyone wishing the opportunity to attend St. Joseph’s.
  1. The Summer Sports Clinic with Mr. O’Brien will start on July 12. Students should report to caf. Wear light clothing. You may bring a water bottle, but snack and beverages will be provided. (Kindly put balance of $69. by check or cash in an envelope with child’s name on envelope)
  1. The High School Algebra program will begin on July 12. Students should report to Sr. Catherine’s room where Mr. Harrington will greet them. Snacks and beverages will be provided, but students may also bring a water bottle. All materials will be provided. (kindly put balance of $69. by check or cash in an envelope with child’s name on envelope).*Room is now air conditioned so light summer wear should be fine.
  1. Uniform Policy.
Due to new variations on the theme, I’d like to detail the uniform policy.
 
A.    The standard red plaid skirt/jumper and blouse and blue pants with white shirt and plaid tie , accompanied by black shoes is the standard uniform that may be worn at any time, and must be worn from Oct. 13 to May 1 and for all liturgical services
B.    The St. Joseph Gym Uniform may be worn on gym day with no substitutions. Otherwise, students may wear the standard uniform and change into gym clothes.
C.    The new warm weather option is khaki or blue pants, shorts, or skorts with any of the available polo shirts.
 
YOU ARE DEFINITELY NOT REQUIRED TO PURCHASE THESE. If wearing skorts or shorts, students may wear sneakers with white socks.
 
  1.  Easy money…… 
A.    If using any general Mills products , please save the box          tops. Last year we received almost $1,000 for box tops (Thanks to parent coordinators Melanie Holtz and Diane MacDonald)
 
B.    Bonus Bucks from Stop and Shop…again an easy source of school revenue . All you need to do to register is to go online to www.stopandshop.com/aplus or call 1-877-275-2758 and register your Stop and Shop card with St. Joseph’s School id 07787. Then every time you shop, the school gets points. (thanks to parent coordinator Wendy McLellan for this year’s program).
 
             Grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors can all participate!!!
 
Thank you so much and enjoy. We’ll continue to update website as is appropriate over summer and be mailing out the 2010-1011 student packets on August 1st.

Grade 5 Happenings

Grade 5


Grade 5

The fifth grade students have become quite the scientists! They applied their knowledge of sound energy by creating their own musical instruments and then demonstrating high and low pitches. Next, they designed their own rock cycle CD cover, which included their own playlist and rock tour. Learning about cells proved to be a most delicious experience when they made their own edible cells. Most recently, they have been using iPads to research and write about their individual endangered species.
