Peter's Patter - Oct 15th
The first month of school has flown
by! The fourth graders are a social
bunch, so we have been using their love
of sharing to perform for others. They
have performed their reading story
“Catch Me if You Can” for the fifth
graders and the second graders. They
wrote and performed a play about Jacob
tricking Isaac into giving him Esau’s
blessing and then being tricked by Laban
into marrying Leah instead of Rachel.
Acting the stories out helps the
students have fun while they learn, so I’m sure we’ll be
doing more of it. They’ve also been learning about fossils,
writing descriptive paragraphs about amazing animals, and
adding and subtracting in the millions.
They are getting better at serving in volleyball and at
speaking the Spanish words for family members.
The fourth grade fun continues as they turn pumpkins into
world globes and learn the figurative language we use in
English that makes it so confusing for others to learn
English. It might be raining cats and dogs while the bright-
eyed and bushy-tailed fourth graders go hog wild for
St. Peter’s School.
The Tilden Volunteer Fire Department came to school last
week to help teach about fire prevention. The students
were excited to see the big, red trucks and to stop, drop
and roll. We have monthly fire drills at school, but this week
we talked about how important it is to have a fire escape
plan at home.
Save the date for the fabulous fall dance on Friday,
October 20. Everyone is welcome. The students would love
to see you there!
Stay safe and keep praying for our children.
