With Catholic Schools week finishing up this month, we have been working on lots of exciting things to deepen our faith and our relationships with God and each other. February will be a short but hopefully very sweet month with Valentine's Day Party and a long weekend! I'm excited to see all of you at Parent Teacher Conferences on the 12th and 13th!

While the temperatures have warmed up, please make sure your students are coming to school with jackets each day. If they want to wear a jacket in class, it must be a St. Peter sweatshirt. Please make sure they are following all uniform policies especially socks and shoes.

In English, we are buckling down as we start to prepare for the State Assessments next month. It is important to make sure your students are doing their homework each night to give them some extra practice on some of the more difficult concepts. We will also be working on informational texts in our curriculum and learning strategies to help us understand these types of texts. 

In Social Studies, we are going to be moving past colonization and into the American Revolution. We will lean all about how America got it's start and how, through tradition, we still have some of the same principles and ideas in our government and life today. There is a great video series called "Liberty Kids" we will be watching to help reinforce these ideas and learn about some of the most influential people of the Revolution.
