This year, STM would like to honor the Veterans in our lives with a video.  Please email ONE picture of any and all Veterans in your family to Rachel Espinosa (rachele@stthomasmore.org).  We would like to include as many branches as we can including: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, Merchant Marines, Reserves and National Guard.  Please only send US Vets.  All pictures must be submitted by November 2nd, 2018.



We began our in-depth study of the 10 Commandments last week.  At some point, please take a peek at your child’s religion notebook…that is where the completed Commandments will be.  Lectio Divina Week 8 will be due on Friday, October 19th.  We have also been saying Rosaries as a class for 40 Days for Life.  If you and your family say a Rosary at any point this month, let me know and I will add you to the count.  Thank you!



DeWolfe:  We will be wrapping up chapter 2 this week.  Students will have a test on chapter 2 on Thursday.



We began chapter 4 last week and will continue through this week as well.  I have a flower dissection lab planned for Tuesday and the vocab quiz scheduled for Thursday 10/18.  All students have their vocabulary in their binders.  I do not have a Quizlet prepared for these words so I would encourage students to make their own.


Social Studies

We began chapter 2 last week and will continue working through the chapter this week.  I have tentatively scheduled the test for October 25th.  All students have their vocabulary lists, so that is a great place to start.  There is already a Quizlet made and can be found at https://quizlet.com/_2o6uzv.  Students will also be completing a Help Wanted poster on an assigned explorer.
