Welcome to Mrs. Healy’s Classroom

The Notre Dame community successfully engages the whole child through experiential learning to make them stronger in mind, body and soul.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. -Proverbs 3:5
Welcome to the 2018–2019 school year. I am extremely excited to be working with your child this year. Listed below are some upcoming dates:
Please have your planner signed each night
What we are focusing on in school.
Math – see Mrs. Kohl’s webpage–
Please practice math facts nightly.
Fundations– We are currently working on unit 8. We will be learning about the consonant -le syllable type
Religion – We have been studying about Abraham and will be celebrating our Catholic heritage throughout Catholic Schools Week.
English– We are currently working on capitalization and punctuation. Soon we will work on persuasive writing.
Science- We are working on our health unit keeping my body fit. We will talk about heart health and dental health since February is the national month for both of these.
Social Studies- We will be working with our new social studies textbook this year. There are many new, creative ways to learn about the world around us in this series. We are working on the different types of communities- urban, suburban and rural areas. We will start planning our milk carton communities.
Reading – Students should read 20 minutes per day. This year we will be working in our guided reading groups, along with our anthology. We are currently finishing up our guided reading books and I have started to re level the students. Book -it calendars are part of students reading grades and should be handed in at the end of each month. I will be implementing book reports after Christmas break. Each child will be required to do 1 for this trimester. More information on this will be coming soon, so be on the watch for it.
If your child is going to be late for any reason and you do not call in by 8:00-8:15 they will need to bring a cold lunch. You may even call the night before and leave a message if you know your child will be late.
This year we will be using an A-E schedule.
A Days– music/Spanish/library
B Days– gym/keyboarding
C Days– music/keyboarding
D Days– Spanish/gym/keyboarding
