The Luck O’ First Grade
First grade had a great time making and setting their leprechaun traps. Unfortunately, no one caught a leprechaun, but they did leave some treasures (and a mess) behind!

Words of the Week
Spelling Unit 4, Week 5
On Friday, students took their spelling pre-test to determine their list of spelling words for Unit 4, Week 5 of spelling. Each child will bring home his or her list on Monday to practice during the week. Students will either practice words on the purple list OR the orange list. Please leave the list on the ‘Right Back to School’ side of the home folder so it is easily accessible for practice daily. I strongly encourage you to practice the spelling words with your child every night. We will take our spelling test on Thursday, March 23.
The focus for this week will be on compound words.

Meet Your Teacher
Hello! My name is Miss Grengs and I am so excited to be joining the St. Mary’s community this year. I was born and raised in Westchester and was blessed to attend Catholic schools from Pre-School though 12th grade. I graduated from Augustana College in Rock Island, IL with a B.A. in Elementary Education. I have
also volunteered as a Religious Education catechist and I have coached 6th and 7th grade girls volleyball. In my spare time, I love shopping, spending time with family and friends, and cheering for the Chicago Cubs and Chicago Blackhawks.
I am already loving St. Mary’s and I look forward to what this year will bring!
