“Which commandment is the most important of all?” Jesus answered, “The most
important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:38-31
Fifth grade students will begin the month of May studying the Second Table of the Ten Commandments learning how they can honor God in their relationships with their neighbor. Students will understand that the Law is a blessing helping us to recognize our need for Jesus, the only one who can rescue us, as demonstrated in His Gospel message. They will learn how they can be witnesses of the faith in what they say and what they do, becoming today’s disciples in the world.
Language Arts Students will invite their R.S.V. P. pen pals to a meet and greet culminating the year of correspondence. Spanish students are wrapping up the school year with a Slides presentation in which they will teach their classmates two Spanish verbs and their conjugation.
Jr. grammar students have progressed through their unit on pronouns onto prepositional phrases, while advanced grammar students will use all the year’s learning to make sense of verbal phrases and complex sentences.
Students have been experimenting with the program Pixton to retell events of Holy Week
and the parables as graphic stories.
