Things to be aware of...


This Friday is the Civil War Wax museum. It will be held in the middle school building from 1:00 to 2:30. Hope to see you there!

Monday is the 8th grade's field trip to Adventureland. We will leave here at 8:30. I am hoping to be back by 5.

Wednesday the 24th is the spring music program. It will be at the High School again, and Mrs. Stoner is asking that students arrive by 6:15 that night.

Friday the 26th is 8th grade graduation at Holy Spirit at 7:00 with a reception following after Mass. We will be practicing for that on Friday afternoon. I will send home permission slips allowing your child to walk to the church next week. Invites for graduation will be given to the students to give to you today or tomorrow, depending on when they will be printed.

Monday the 29th we will not have school due to Memorial Day.

Tuesday the 30th students will need to bring a sack lunch. Milk will be provided. Field Day will also be held on Tuesday in the afternoon.

Wednesday the 31st is the last day of school! We will be getting out 3 hours early. Since it is a Wednesday we will still have Mass. However, it is also a Spirit Day so students do not have to dress up. This day will be the 1st and 8th grades' Mass. So I am asking that the 8th grade does NOT wear athletic shorts, please. Please feel free to come to this Mass as it is the last Mass they will participate in within St. Malachy.

I think that is it... phew. A lot going on! I will keep you updated if I forgot anything.

Hi Parents,

 Because of the venue of our class trip, I will need two chaperones for Monday the 22nd. I will draw names if there are several of you who would like to go.If not, first come, first serve. Email if you are interested. Sorry for the late notice!

Mark your calendars for 8th grade graduation on the 26th of May at 7:00 pm. There will be a reception afterward. Some of the 8th grade girls are making invitations as we speak.

F.Y.I  There will be a Spirit Day this Friday, May 12th.
8th grade parents be marking your calendars for graduation which is the 26th of May at Holy Spirit Church!
The 8th grade field trip will be May 22nd. They are going to Adventureland. I will be sending out permission slips soon.

The 8th grade has been busy with To Kill a Mockingbird. They will be finished with the book tomorrow, Wednesday! We do a lot of discussion throughout the book, and I think they actually like it... a little bit anyways! They will take a test on Friday over the novel and watch the movie next week. After that, they will be working on their research papers. Their topics usually stem from the book in some way.

The 7th grade has a big project they are working on. They have to write a research paper then transform it into a speech of which they also have to make a presentation over Slides to present to the class. It's quite a bit, but we have plenty of time to work on it! Their projects are over different countries they are interested in.

The 6th grade is wrapping up their research papers already. Their topic was a famous person or group. There are some interesting topics. The rough draft is due tomorrow. After that, we will be working on a couple of short stories, creative writing, and analyzing famous speeches before the year is over.

THREE WEEKS FROM TOMORROW IS OUR LAST DAY OF SCHOOL! Crazy how the school year flies by!!

Just a reminder that the permission slips for the High School visit should be signed and returned by Thursday.

I am sending home a yearbook form. The yearbooks will be $10. If you would like one, please indicate it on the form and send money with your child no later than Thursday, May 4th.

Thursday is Lap-a-Thon. The 8th grade is scheduled to run at 10:00 but will be late due to their visit to the High School. We are hoping they run at 10:30. They may wear sweatpants on Thursday. Hopefully this rain will stop!

Hi All,

 Next Thursday, May 4th, the 8th grade will be going to the High School to get a tour and to see what everyday life will be like. I have sent home permission slips yesterday and today. Please have your child get those signed and returned before next Thursday.

Next Thursday is also the Lap-a-Thon. Please have your child bring pledges/donations. This day is a free Spirit Day since they will be running.

Monday I will be sending home 8th grade yearbook order forms. If you would like one, please send the money into me by Thursday, May 4th. (The form will indicate how much they will cost.) You can make checks out to St. Malachy School. I usually hand the yearbooks out the night of graduation.

Thank you to all of the parents for letting your child help with Ties and Tutus tonight!

The field trip to the State Capitol was a success! It was very interesting, and the kids were engaged especially with discussion and asking questions.

Awesome job to all of the kiddos on the Invention Convention! There were a lot of neat ideas! (Please don't mind Sam who is photo bombing the group pictures. She can be seen posing.) 

Cross Walk
We had a beautiful day for the Cross Walk! The kids looked awesome in white. The school photo turned out GREAT and can't wait to see it printed.
