Dear 1B Families,

I hope you enjoyed the long weekend, don’t forget the zoom links for the week and other helpful information were sent via email.

Zoom Meetings:

Tuesday May 26 Meeting at 10:30 AM

Thursday May 28 Meeting at 10:30 AM

Important information:

  • Math: This week we are continuing to work on our subtraction chapter.

On Tuesday we will review related facts and fact families.

  • Reading:  This week in reading there is an assessment in Raz-Kids posted.  Please have our child complete the End of the Year Assessment by Friday.
  1. Read the letter in goggle classroom
  2. Set aside 15-20 minutes to complete the reading assessment.
  3. The reading assessment can be completed any day this week.

*Mrs. Latta’s students will complete their reading assessment during their 1-1 Zoom meeting.  They can read to self or explore Epic for reading this week.

When the assessment is completed continue to build reading stamina at home though read-to-self.

If your child is needing help finding good fit books I encourage you to have them use Raz-Kids and Epic- https://www.getepic.com/students  Class code- xww4940

  • Science: On Wednesday, 5/27, we will take our human body science test.
  • Please remember to send photos for Mrs. Mallahan!  She is retiring after 32 years of teaching at St. Mary Magdalen!  To help with her sendoff, we are putting together a video full of thanks for passing her joy and love of reading onto the SMM Community.  Please take a picture of your student or student(s) with their favorite book and send the picture to Melissa Morrier-Turk at MMorrierTurk@stmarym.org by Friday, May 29th. If your student would like to write a note to Mrs. Mallahan or hold up a poster with an affirmation (thanks, you rock, etc.) that would be great as well!  Thank you for helping make this retirement for Mrs. Mallahan a special one!

Again thank you so much for all your help and support and please let me know if you have any questions! 😊

Thank you and God Bless,

Mrs. Heidi Harris

My name is Melissa Morrier-Turk, I am a graduate of SMM (class of 1986) and have been a member of the parish community much of my life. I have a B.S. in Business with an emphasis in Human Resources from Central Washington University and have spent my 23 years working in this field, traveling all over the USA and Canada as an HR Director, as well as a corporate trainer. My husband Mike and I have two kids, our son will be a Junior at Archbishop Murphy High School and our daughter will be a 7th grader here at SMM. As a parent, I have been an active member of the SMM community, most recently wrapping up my role as the Parent Club President this year and V.P. last year. I have also been an active member of the auction for the past 8 years, along with numerous opportunities to volunteer in my children’s classrooms and through club activities. In my off time I enjoy running, cycling, hiking, anything outdoorsy really. I have absolutely loved working with and getting to know so many of the families here at SMM as a parent and am looking forward to getting to know you all better as part of your school community!
