Mrs. Birge and the 5th grade class will be doing a Food Drive service project in conjunction with Comfort Keepers. This project is also in conjunction with Faithlink, which St. Mary Catholic School has participated in service projects for the last 2 years. The food drive will begin, Tuesday, November 13th through the end of November. Items that are most needed to fill the food pantry through Faithlink are canned vegetables, juices, pasta, oats, dry beans, ready to eat cereals and creamy peanut butter. There will be a class competition for the class collecting the most food. 5th grade will provide a rootbeer float party to the winning class.
Hello Mrs. Porter,
I just wanted to write you a thank you note for everything you taught me in 8th grade, especially in English class. All of the grammar rules, sentence structure, and writing techniques you discussed are extremely helpful in high school. When writing papers, all of the material you taught me enhances my paper immensely! You would be surprised how many students in my English class were unfamiliar with even active/passive voice. Anyways, just thought I’d write a quick thank you letter to show my appreciation for assisting me in writing and grammar. Good luck with this year’s class, and I hope they can later see how everything taught to them in those classes and all others will benefit them a lot in high school!
