The Act Of Contrition 
My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good. I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things. I firmily intend, with your help to do penance to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior, Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. In his name, my God have mercy.

Spelling Words for the Week of 2/27/17  

This week the student's will be having their first spelling dictation of the year. This week I will give them the short paragraph I will be reading. Students need to know the correct spelling of all words that are read to them, as well as using the correct capitalization or punctuation that is needed. The next time there is a dictation, students will not be given the short paragraph ahead of time. 

The child ran wild, right as his mom had to catch her flight. He looked up to the sky, to see where she would fly. The sun was bright. He started to cry. He had to find his mom, so he was not alone. Don't leave me by myself. The spider will get me!
