Science: Students Inventions are due Friday, January 27th. They will be displayed in the hallway for Catholic Schools Week.

Students will take a quiz based on their observations and notes on microbes next Wednesday (1/18).

Next, students begin a STEM unit by Project Lead the Way titled Ecosystems: Flow of Matter of Energy. In this unit students learn about Earth’s ecosystems and how energy flows from the Sun to plants, and from plants to animals.

Social Studies: Chapter 7 Comparing the Colonies:

Next week students will continue working on their Colonial Billboards. Students will work to complete the Billboard as well as the planning for their presentation. The presentation will be the following week. The test for this Chapter is on 2/8 for 5B, and 2/9 for 5A.

Religion: Students begin Chapter 15, Forgiveness and Healing. Students will compare the faith journey of the two sons in the parable of the lost son (Luke 15: 11-32). Students will learn about the parts, signs, and effects of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Next, they will explore God’s healing power in the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick.

English/Language Arts: Hello HRS families! Next week, we will continue our study of the novel Wonder. There will be assigned reading for homework, which can be found on the matrix. I ask that students stay on pace with the class, and avoid reading ahead. If students have their own copy of the book, they are welcome to use it. Books were passed out with ziploc bags to keep books safe as they travel to and from school. We will also be practicing citing evidence and writing effective commentary to build skills in students’ literary analysis. Have a nice weekend!

Have a great weekend!
