Mrs. Magin's 5th Grade SJWEST

 

ALL SAINTS DAY 2017

To:  5th grade parents/guardians

From:  Mrs. Magin

 

This year, November 1 , 2017, Saint John School will celebrate All Saints Day.  On this day, we will celebrate with mass and 5th grade students will be dressing as saints and processing into the church.  To prepare for this day, several activities will take place at school and at home.

 

AT SCHOOL:

  1. Students will choose a saint to research during the last week of September.  During the month of October, we will be researching and writing a biography report on their chosen saint during Language Arts.
  2. Students will create a poster “pennant” about their saint in Religion class.

 

AT HOME: 

  1. Students should plan and create a costume of their saint. Your students should know a bit about their saints and should have an idea of what their saint looked like after they have started research.
  2. Below are some websites that are helpful for those who don’t sew or who might need a few ideas.
