This week we will be having our Lenten Retreat on Monday morning. We will also have Reconciliation on Wednesday and Adoration on Friday. We are still looking for family members to read to the class during the month of March. If you are interested, please contact me. We will also be doing our first vote for our March Book Madness. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Religion: This week we will learn more about the Sacrament of Reconciliation and how Jesus gave us the Sacrament.

Language Arts: This week we will be reading the story The Man Who Invented Basketball. This is a nonfiction story about how James Naismith created basketball. In grammar, we will be working on singular and plural pronouns. We will also be learning about generalizations.
