All Saints Day Invitation
We would like to invite all families to join us in church for 10:00 Mass on Friday, November 1st where our “Saints Will Come Marching In” to lead mass. Immediately following Mass, parents are invited to join us in the SFX atrium for a Saint Wax Museum. You will have the opportunity to stroll through statues of the Saints from Mass. If you lightly tap any statue, it will come to life and tell you a little about him/herself before freezing again.
Just a reminder that Saint costumes should already be safely hanging in your child’s locker. We understand that several costumes are still being shipped and/or worked on. Please get them to school as soon as possible. We would like the opportunity to practice Mass with any props and/or large hats.
Thank you to all of our chaperone volunteers that joined us last Thursday at Elmwood Beach. Our third graders learned so much about the history that was discovered right here in Wilmette. Did you know that Elmwood Beach was actually the first public access beach in the township? We also learned about how volunteers replanted the area with native vegetation to attract native animals and migrating birds. And of course, we had a little fun on the way at Gilson Park.
Our next field trip is planned for Monday, November 4th. On this trip we will walk over to Maple Park to play a huge game of Food Chain Tag that will culminate our unit on plants and animals. In the classrooms, students have been creating food chains for different habitats around the world. We will act out these food chains within a game of tag. We need chaperones to help with the walk over and back, as well as participate in the game. So if you volunteer, be sure to wear your running shoes.
We will not have a spelling test next week, October 28th – November 1st due to Halloween and All Saints Day Mass. Enjoy a week off!
