Math

There will be a math test on Monday. Please be sure your child knows what a plus sign is, equals sign, and the word “sum”. In class we have been working on learning our shape names. (Hexagon, triangle, square, trapezoid, large rhombus, and thin rhombus.) We have been using new math tools such as Anglegs, pattern blocks, and calculators. Students have learned new math games which they are looking forward to teaching you at Math Night on Thursday.

Reading

Students are making great progress in reading. Some groups are working on fluency, some are working on acquiring more sight words, some are learning about types of sentences. All students are learning about genres. Student Raz-kids accounts have bene activated. If you would like to see what your child is reading in this program go to Raz-Kids.com. Have your child log in. Our class name is smmpig and student passwords are their first initial of their first and last names. (Example: Sam Johnson’s password would be sj.) If you need help with this let me know.

Writing

Students created books called Things We See In The Fall. They did an amazing job writing and illustrating their books.

Religion

Religion and Science were integrated nicely this week. We discussed praised as a type of prayer. We praised God for the moon, starts, trees and plants. In Science this week we learned about plants and trees. We are learning about what plants and tress need to grow and stay healthy. We can help take care of God’s creating.

My name is Melissa Morrier-Turk, I am a graduate of SMM (class of 1986) and have been a member of the parish community much of my life. I have a B.S. in Business with an emphasis in Human Resources from Central Washington University and have spent my 23 years working in this field, traveling all over the USA and Canada as an HR Director, as well as a corporate trainer. My husband Mike and I have two kids, our son will be a Junior at Archbishop Murphy High School and our daughter will be a 7th grader here at SMM. As a parent, I have been an active member of the SMM community, most recently wrapping up my role as the Parent Club President this year and V.P. last year. I have also been an active member of the auction for the past 8 years, along with numerous opportunities to volunteer in my children’s classrooms and through club activities. In my off time I enjoy running, cycling, hiking, anything outdoorsy really. I have absolutely loved working with and getting to know so many of the families here at SMM as a parent and am looking forward to getting to know you all better as part of your school community!
