Fourth Grade – Week of 5/18/15

Thank you to all the families who attended the Spring Concert last Thursday. The students did an incredible
job singing, and the choir members were fabulous bell ringers! I know that you have all gotten to see the
yearbooks that the students brought home last week. I am so proud of the great job these students did creating
this totally awesome book. I hope you enjoy it as much as they enjoyed creating it. We will be celebrating our
success by having a special luncheon. Dates and menu items will be sent home this week. This week we will be
celebrating mass on Thursday with the 3rd and 5th graders. Please join us if you are able. Saturday is the Legacy
of Saint Rene celebration. Tickets must be purchased by Monday if you would like to attend the dinner. I will be
here and look forward to seeing many of you there. Please feel free to stop by our classroom during the open house,
the students are always eager to share what we do with their families. Please remember money for the field trip on
June 1st is due on Monday as well. If you have any questions or concerns regarding anything, please feel free
to contact me fourthgrade@strenechicago.com. Have a great week! ————-Mrs. Healy
