Summer Reading and Math Assignments for incoming 6th graders:

1. Summer Reading Assignments: Incoming 6th graders will be responsible for reading The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by: C.S. Lewis (ISBN: 9780064471046).  Mrs. DeLurgio spoke to both 5th grade classes last week, so the students should have information for you.  The information sheet is available in my resources section.

2. Math Summer Solutions:  All incoming 6th graders will be responsible for completing a Math Summer Solutions workbook over the summer.  The workbook must be completed in it’s entirety and turned in during the first week of school (official due date TBD).  All 5th graders should order the “Intermediate A: Mathematics” level.  This assignment will be taken for a grade in math.  These workbooks can be ordered now!  Shipping is free until May 12th.  Please see the ordering information below:

This week we are beginning our donation drive for Ride the Rockies to benefit the Samaritan House. We are asking students to do extra chores, babysit, help neighbors with yard work, etc. in order to “earn” their money for donation. There will be a letter sent home today explaining the details. If you write a check for donation please make it out to STM Catholic. Thank you for your support of this endeavor!



We will begin and complete the End of Year Math Test this week – please continue to study nightly for concepts that you are struggling with!  We will continue testing on Tuesday and Friday of this week.
