We have our Grove and Wagner Farm field trip scheduled for Monday, March 18th. We will leave SFX around 8:30 and head to The Grove in Glenview and at noon we will head to Wagner Farm. Students are asked to come dressed in their SFX uniform with appropriate layers for the day. The programs will be held both inside and outside. Students will also need to bring a lunch from home which will be eaten outdoors, picnic style.
This past Wednesday we hosted Poetry Pals here at SFX. First we would like to send a HUGE thank out to all the moms that showed up to help chaperone and serve lunch. We had a hugely successful day! Our crusaders made us proud welcoming our guest, giving tours of our church and performing their skits. Thank you all for your support and help with our Poetry Pals journey this school year. We feel that this program is so valuable and helps the students see differences that should be celebrated!
We had a great time hosting our Grand People on Friday. In the classroom they participated in a number of activities. Some grandparents helped answer a “Would You Rather” question or they were interviewed about the differences in schools today from when they attended 3rd grade. The kids enjoyed their special time with their special people!
On Thursday we celebrated Pi Day during math. We started off by reading Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi to give the kids a basic understanding of Pi. We then played a card game where they raced to be the first person to get rid of all their cards by sequencing out Pi, 3.14159265….
Spring Break is upon us! If you are planning on missing school, before or after spring break, please email your child’s homeroom teacher. Just like a normal absence, students will be expected to complete all missing work. We will try to gather missing assignments before departed for any parents who let us know in advance.
