Happy Advent! We have been reading stories in the library leading up to the birth of Christ and the celebration of Christmas. This week I am reading to all classes a pop-up version of the Clement Clarke Moore poem ” ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” by Robert Sabuda. Mr. Sabuda’s version is beautiful and unique and the students really enjoy the book. If you would like to learn how to make pop-ups, please visit Mr. Sabuda’s website at robertsabuda.com
Happy Third Week of Advent! Since returning to school after Thanksgiving, we have been reading stories in the library focusing on the birth of Christ and the celebration of Christmas. This week I am reading to all classes a pop-up version of the Clement Clarke Moore poem “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” illustrated by Robert Sabuda. Mr. Sabuda’s pop-ups are unique and special. If students would like to learn more about pop-up books or how to make pop-up cards, they can visit Mr. Sabuda’s website at http://wp.robertsabuda.com/. May God bless you and your families as you prepare to celebrate the birth of Our Lord.

6 September 2017 – St. Eleutherius – Wednesday 22nd Week of Ordinary Time
We began our school year yesterday with a prayer service, during which Fr. Riegler blessed medals of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. One of the 12 promises of the Sacred Heart states: “I promise you in the excessive mercy of my Heart that my all-powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion on the First Fridays in nine consecutive months the grace of final perseverance; they shall not die in my disgrace, nor without receiving their sacraments. My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.” Catholic Schools celebrate Mass on the First Friday of each month to honor the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us. Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.
Second and Third Grade students need to bring their library book back to the library tomorrow for return or renewal. Please remember that several books have a waiting list. Thank you.
Mrs. Shuster’s Scholastic Reading Club account code is GKJGN.
The first month of the Pizza Hut Book-It Program ends today. Students should return their completed calendar or tracking sheet to their teacher to receive their pizza certificate. Certificates are good for one month from the date they are issued by the teacher. Let’s keep reading!
St. Isidore School participates in the Book-It Program. The program runs from October – March each year and is a way to encourage students and their families to read. Students are given a calendar, or other log each month to track their reading. Teachers will set a goal: either minutes per day or month, or pages or books read each month. Students complete their calendar or log and if they achieve their goal they will receive a certificate for a personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut each month they achieve their goal. Thank you for encouraging your child to read and Thank You for choosing St. Isidore School for your family.
This week is the last week that students in Grades PK – K – 2 – 3 – 4 will borrow books. Students in Grades 1 – 5 – 6 – 7 – 8 have already borrowed books for the last time this school year. All books must be returned or paid for by June 7. I am attaching a letter about Summer Reading websites and activities. I hope you find this information helpful. Thank you for choosing St. Isidore School for your family. God Bless.
