Hello. Welcome back to school. 2019-2020 is going to be an exciting year!  I am looking forward to being  a part of the St. Catherine's family.  I have been teaching for several years and I am looking forward to working with the students and families.  Please communicate with me anytime. Also, please realize I am doing my best but I am still learning the procedures of St. Catherine's School. I believe everything will come together smoothly and quickly.  See you on Wednesday 8/21/19

Reminder tomorrow is our Back to School night. I am looking forward to meeting everyone.
Homework update: this week has been review for most classes therefore, there has not been much homework. Students should be reading 15-20 minutes a night and practicing multiplication facts. 

Reminder: vocabulary test is Friday unit 2. Students should know definitions, synonyms, and antonyms.  Every 2 weeks is a new unit. First week is spelling second week vocabulary. 
Check agenda books for daily homework. Most weeks math is given Monday-Thursday. 
Also, students should be putting what color they were on in agenda. So far most days behavior has not been an issue. 
Quite a few tests this week: Tues. Reading,  Wed. English,  Thurs. Religion, and Fri. Vocab. 
As always, contact me with any questions/concerns

Tomorrow is a dress down day. Donate $1.00
Students were introduced to a few websites today. They should be able to get spelling/vocab words from Sadlier,  practice on Spelling city, practice math on IXL and study Religion on Flourish. 

Progress report papers went home today.  Updated grades are on Power school. Any questions/concerns please contact me. Overall, behavior is good but there are a few areas we need to improve.  There is time to improve grades. We will continue to work on different skills that will help us succeed.

What a crazy week.  I am missing the students already. Please check Google classroom every day for assignments and instructions. I will be available between 8-3 everyday and also check emails/remind throughout the evening. Contact me with any questions. Good luck!
Hello all. I hope everyone is doing well. This is a link from Mr. Caffee  check it out.
I will be hosting a class meeting Thursday at 11:00. Hope to see all the students.  Students usually get comments on their work to what they got correct/incorrect.  I am hoping they complete their work daily but as long as it is in by the end of the week they will get credit.  Take care

Week of April 20th
I hope everyone is doing well. I miss my students but I am doing my best to communicate with them. I have scheduled zoom meetings each week to answer any questions and to give directions for projects. Students can request other meetings whenever they are struggling and need extra help. Please contact me anytime with questions/issues. This is an adjustment for all of us but we are in this together and will survive. I do expect them to complete as much work as possible daily but I know some days are harder than others.
