Please continue to encourage your child to practice his or her math facts at home. More difficult math work is quickly coming up, and the more comfortable they are with their facts the easier the concepts will be. Ascend Math is a great way to practice multiplication and division facts online.

An Autumn Prayer
O God of Creation, you have blessed us with the changing of the seasons.
As we welcome the autumn months,
may the earlier setting of the sun
remind us to take time to rest.
May the brilliant colors of the leaves
remind us of the wonder of your creation.
May the steam of our breath in the cool air
remind us that it is you who give us the breath of life.
May the harvest from the fields remind us of the abundance we have been given and bounty we are to share with others.
May the dying of summer’s spirit remind us of your great promise that death is temporary and life is eternal.
We praise you for your goodness forever and ever. Amen.
I am currently in my fourth year at St. Pius V School.

I also coached the JV Boys Basketball team the past two seasons. I received my Bachelors degree from St. Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire.
