Why a Catholic Education Matters
Praying to God openly when times call for it is something that I saw my teachers doing and I hope to portray to my scholars that certain times call for prayer. St. Joseph School provides scholars with a quality education that incorporates the love for Jesus into the fields of study. The faith of the scholars begins to flourish and grow when the spiritual aspect of the scholars are watered with Catholic Education. St. Joseph School is a warm, welcoming community which allows scholars to feel comfortable which in turn allows scholars to learn.

We have finished our astronomy unit and we will be progressing onto our Chemistry unit. Different elements on the periodic table, atoms, electrons, compounds, and various bonds, as well as molecules, will be discussed.
In Math, we will be pushing forward with fractions. Students will be adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions. We will be covering Module 3 and starting Module 4 throughout the second quarter. Mathletics is being used in our classroom for enrichment and I encourage students to go onto Mathletics at home.
We use ConnectEd, the website of our ELA book, to help deepen our understanding and to practice various skills. Students will continue to use ConnectEd and Mathletics throughout the year.
The students have been enjoying the Studies Weekly newspapers that we have been using to investigate Canada, the United States, and Latin America. This quarter we will be looking at the indigenous people in these countries and the colonization of the United States. * Students have a log in for the Studies Weekly which provides them digital access to the newspaper.
Advent and the Christmas season have been and will continue to be the subject of interest in Religion. We will also continue to explore the sacraments we celebrate in our Catholic Faith.
We have exchanged a few different letters with our penpals in Hawaii. The students have thoroughly enjoyed receiving and sending letters to them. We are getting very good at writing friendly letters!
Thank you to all of you who attended Parent/ Teacher conferences. I enjoyed discussing your child's progress. As always, please contact me is you would like to have another meeting.
