4th Grade – Week of 3/16/2015





Happy Spring!!! I hope everyone had a chance to enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend. Congratulations to our St. Rene Senior Bank on their Gold Medal! I hope that all the band students were successful at their solo competitions. Please send me pictures for the yearbook! Thank you to Mrs. Onate for the volleyball pictures from this weekend. I will be sure to upload them so we can use them in the yearbook. Many of you have sent me photos from football, cheerleading, choir,etc. Thank you so much, they will help us to make the yearbook very special this year. Now that we have completed all of the Terra Nova testing, we are back to our regular routine. This week we have mass on Thursday where we will remember and celebrate St. Patrick and St. Joseph. Please join us if you are able. As always if you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. My email is fourthgrade@strenechicago.com. Have a great week! —-Mrs. Healy
