Field trip to Museum
Permission slips for our Wilmette Historical Museum Trip were handed out last week. We will be walking from SFX to the Wilmette Historical Museum on Ridge Road. We will be eating lunch in our classrooms at 11:30 and then heading over. We are hoping to return to school by 2:45, in time for dismissal. Please make sure your student returns their signed yellow permission slips as soon as possible. Chaperones will receive an email from us by the end of Monday.
Walking Tour of East Wilmette Trip
On Friday, May 31st we will be taking a walking tour of east WIlmette to see and discuss many of the historical sites we have been learning about in class. A green permission slip for this trip will be coming home on Monday, May 13th. We will need two chaperones from each homeroom to walk with us, as well as read from a script about each specific site. If it rains on the date of the trip, we will cancel and do the walking tour from our classroom on Google Maps.
This week in EPIC Mrs. Pritchard led us through a teamwork activity. We attached a colored dot to the forehead of each student. Students then had to group themselves, according to the colored dots, without talking or writing. Students quickly found strategies to use to complete this task. We were so impressed! During the wrap up discussion we LOVED the lesson they took away…putting others first! Students were grouping others, before worrying about themselves! By the last go at it, they were in the correct color groups in less than 60 seconds!
Every Thursday during the month of May, we will be praying the Rosary together as a class. Your child is welcome to bring a Rosary from home to pray with during this special time.
