Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is hard to believe that we are entering into the last week of February and the end of the second trimester!
Last week some of our 7th and 8th grade students in our accelerated math classes competed in the annual CBA Math Competition. Saint Leo the Great placed at number 7 among all of the schools and was the highest among both Middletown and other Catholic Schools who participated. Congratulations to all of the students who participated and a special thank you to Mr. Austin and Mrs. Vingelli for working with our students throughout this process.
This week our 5th and 6th grade students will be taking their end of trimester exams. The schedule of exams are as follows:
- Monday, February 26th- Language Arts
- Tuesday, February 27th – Religion
- Wednesday, February 28th – Math (6th Grade) and Science (5th Grade)
- Thursday, February 29th - Social Studies
- Friday, March 1st – Science (6th Grade) and Math (5th Grade)
As a reminder, any student that finds themselves absent for any of these testing days will need to provide a doctor’s note upon their return. The students have been working hard in their preparation and I am confident they will perform well.
Our Pre-K through 3rd grade students will have a special visit with authors H. Barry Kahl and A. Bruno Rovira in recognition of “Read Across America” this week. We are always working on providing these meetings to encourage student’s reading and writing skills.
Additionally, all students will have an assembly on Thursday, February 29th with Reverand Raju Pilla from the Latin Archdiocese of Trivandrum. Reverend Pilla will be sharing with the students his mission and how we can all do our part in supporting those in need.
As a reminder, this Wednesday, February 28th is a half day and dismissal will be at 12:30 PM.
I hope everyone enjoys the remainder of their weekend!
