Why a Catholic Education Matters
After spending the majority of my career in the public school system, it is refreshing to be in an environment where spiritually is not only permitted, but encouraged. The inclusion of the spiritual piece in each child's education helps to form a well rounded experience for all those involved, students, families and teachers.

Fifth Grade News
Welcome to 5th grade at St. Joseph Regional School.
In addition to being the 5th grade homeroom teacher I am teaching 4th, 5th and 6th grade Math as well as 5th grade English Language Arts.
We are going to have an awesome year in Math class!
Welcome to your new Math class at Saint Joseph Regional School. Whether you are in 4th, 5th or 6th grade this year, I will be your amazing math teacher. In my classroom, we use the Eureka math program that you have come to know and love in previous years along with daily doses of iReady. We will work hard to build up and maintain your basic math skills and have a little fun along the way. Math does not have to be a struggle and practice makes perfect. Your Math class this year will be a mixture of practicing the skills you have gained in previous years and discovering some new and exciting talents that you were not aware you had.
My 5th grade homeroom students will also have the pleasure of having me for Language Arts this year. Language Arts class will be based on novels that appeal to 5th grade students and are connected to the New York Common Core Standards. We are going to begin the year by reading Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan. You will notice a close connection this year between the topics you are learning in Social Studies and the readings in Language Arts. It’s going to be a great year and I can’t wait to get started.
A note from Mrs. Laska, our religion teacher: I am so excited to be teaching Religion this year to our second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth graders. My main goal as a Catechist is to encourage students to live their faith and become active members of the Catholic Church.
Our fourth, fifth, and sixth graders will be preparing to partake in our school liturgies for the first part of the school year. Our fourth grade will be studying ways in which God reveals himself to us through his son Jesus, the Scriptures, and His Holy Church. Fifth grade will be focusing on how we are called to worship God. In our first unit of study we will be learning about the Sacraments of Initiation, which include Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. Finally, sixth grade will be learning about how God reveals his plan of love. This unit will focus on the importance of Scripture, Creation, and Sacred Tradition.
All classes will spend time learning about the Saints and Holy Days throughout the year. I am looking forward to a great school year full of faith with the students.
