St. Anthony Fifth Grade Home Page

9/22/14 to 9/26/14

It was so nice seeing so many of you at the school picnic last Friday evening.  I think all had a good time even though the weather tried to put damper on our spirits. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Meyers for the great grilling and Mrs. Tillack etal for organizing and preparing the side-dishes.

I update this web-page weekly usually Sunday evening. The homework for the entire week in the subjects which I teach will be  posted, including the Spelling list words. 

    The next Earth Force meeting will be on Monday, September 22nd from 3:30-5:00.  Students are to go to their regular dismissal location and will be paged to meet me at the church door.  Registration forms were sent home with the first newsletter.  If you need a registration form, ask Mrs. Rosie in the office, please.  Are there any parents willing and able to help supervise the Earth Force members each Monday?  You must have current Safe Environment certification.  The time you spend helping counts as volunteer hours if you sign in in the office.  I have been fortunate  in the past to have Mrs. Kennedy, Mr. Garro, Mr. Merriett, Mrs. Merriett, and Mrs. D'Ovideo helping me.  Some of these families have left the area and/or graduated.       

There will be "extra help" sessions on Wednesdays 3:15-4:15 for both Science and English.  

               Requests for conferences should be made through the office or in person with me.  I am generally available any morning or after school on Wednesday - Friday.
