Good Morning Class,

Happy Monday!    A new week begins, who knows what it will bring.  Here is a Dr. Seuss quote to think about, “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”  God made each of you special.  Let your light shine. I am looking forward to seeing everyone at our 9:30 Zoom Meeting.  Do not forget your books, we will go over your work and look at what we will be doing this week.                                                          See you soon.                                                                                                                                                     Love,                                                                                                                                                                 Mrs. Dariano

Good Morning Class,

It was great to have yesterday off.  I hope everyone enjoyed a restful day.  We will also be off on Monday, Memorial Day. On this day we remember those who died fighting for our freedom.  On May 25, 2020 Township Mayor Mednay and other New Jersey mayors are inviting citizens to come out of their homes at 10:00 am and sing the Star Spangle Banner.  We learned our National Anthem in school this year, maybe with your parents help you could sing together. Picture Francis Scott Key writing what he watched from a British war vessel as the British bombed Fort McHenry. 

Also check the GARS website for Sister Jerilyn’s Gospel Reflection video. Ascension Thursday will be remembered at this Sunday’s mass.

Q: Knock, knock----Who's There?----Ash----Ash who?
A: Bless you!     Enjoy a blessed weekend.

See you at this week’s Zoom Meeting, which will be on Tuesday at 9:30. See you then.

Love,                                                                                                                                                                  Mrs. Dariano

Good Morning Class,

“Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is your-er than your!” Dr. Seuss

Enjoy your day and do your best with your tests.   Enjoy tomorrow and rest on your day off.

Why do you have a day off?  Tomorrow is Ascension Thursday.  The Ascension is Jesus’

returning to the Father in Heaven.  On page 57 of your religion book you will read how the

Apostles reacted to Jesus returning to His Father in Heaven.  Sister Jerilyn has sent a message

regarding celebrating Ascension Thursday this year that you can read.

Wednesday is Gym day, do not forget to do your regular gym routine and keep your body strong.

No Zoom Meeting tomorrow.  Miss you.

Love,

Mrs. Dariano

Good Morning Class,

Hope everyone is doing well on this windy day.  Once again it is Tuesday, Art Class with Sister Maria and Sister Angela.  Look in your Art Packet and find an activity you would enjoy doing and send it along to Sister Maria and Sister Angela.  fmijmdr@yahoo.com  I know it would brighten their day to receive a picture from you.

Do your very best on your tests today.  Hope you enjoy reading the story, “Mountains Surviving Mt. Everest."  As you read the story you will learn many interesting facts about Mount Everest and mountain climbing.  Within the story you will meet Temba, a young man whose dream is to climb the tallest mountain on Earth, Mount Everest.

You're off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So... get on your way!

May 8, 2020

Good Morning Class,

I just watched Sister Jerilyn's Gospel Reflection for this Sunday.  Please take time to watch the video and think about this week’s Gospel message.  As Sister reflected on the Gospel, she mentioned the word trust.  A question to think about, how do you show your trust in God?  Share with Jesus all your worries and trust in Him to hear you and help you.  Also share your gratitude to Him for His love for you and your family.

It is Friday.  For me, the week went by so fast. I enjoyed our Zoom Meeting yesterday.  It was so nice to  hear what YOU have been learning on your own.  I like Dr. Seuss and I found this quote to share withyou.  “If you keep your eyes open enough, oh, the stuff you will learn. Oh, the most wonderful stuff.” – from “Oh, the Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss.  As you enjoy the weekend keep your eyes open and share what you learned this weekend with us at our Monday Zoom Meeting.                                                                                                  Do not forget to include God in everything you do.                                                                                            Have a terrific weekend.

Love,

Mrs. Dariano

MAY 6, 2020

Good Morning Class,

Not a sunny day today, but every day is a good day.  Do not forget to thank God for this day and all the blessings it holds for each of us.  Think of something you can thank God for today.  Also, today is Gym Day.  Time to exercise your body follow the directions Mrs. Gibison assigned you.  If you forget the assignment, look back at the April 28 assignments. 

News of the day:  AJ has a baby brother; he is now a big brother.  God bless AJ, his family, and his new baby brother.

Thought for the day:  ” Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!” Dr. Seuss

Do your best.  I am here if you need help.  Do not forget to complete all the online assignments. Do an assignment a day.

Wishing each of you a terrific day! 

Love,

Mrs. Darian

 

MAY 6, 2020

Good Morning Class,

It is a beautiful sunny day to spend some time outside enjoying God’s creation.  Look at all the many shades of green, hear the birds singing and as I walked down by the lake there are five little goslings being protected by their parents as they take their morning walk. The scene made me think of Charlotte’s Web.  What do you see or hear as you venture outside or look out your window? Today is ART Class.  Below is part of an email I sent your parents from Sister Maria and Sister Angela.  If you did not receive the email, please let me know and I will resend it.

Enjoy your day. 

Love,

Mrs. Dariano

Dear parents,

May 4, 2020

Good Morning Class,

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  Saturday was a beautiful day to go outside and appreciate the spring weather.  As Sister Jerilyn mentioned in her video, May is the month of Mary.  To honor Mary, we pray the Rosary.  Remember last year as we gathered outside our classrooms quieting ourselves down as we waited for Miss O’Brien to lead us in the Rosary.  Today, picture yourself in the hallway your Rosary in your hands, side by side with your classmates reciting the Rosary.  Take some time this week and pray a decade of the Rosary each day by yourself or with your family.   On page 289 of your Religion book you will find directions on how to pray the Rosary.  Once again make pray talking to God part of your day.                                                                Today we have our Zoom Meeting at 9:30. I hope everyone can make it.  Bring some paper and crayons, colors red, blue, orange and your favorite color to the meeting.  Also bring your math, reading and religion books. 

See you soon.

Love,

Mrs. Dariano

 

MAY 1, 2020     SPIRIT DAY

Good Morning Class,

Please click on Sister Jerilyn's video that can be found on the GARS website.  Join Sister as she prays the Rosary.  The month of May is dedicated to Mary.  Remember if we were in school, we would be praying together a decade of the Rosary each morning.  Take some time each day this month to pray a decade while at home with your family. And thought we cannot gather together to celebrate the Mass we can view it online. 

It is also Friday the end of another week.  Do not forget at any time of the day or night we can call on Jesus.  He is always waiting, listening for our call.  What a wonderful blessing (Sacred Space) You can start your Reading test with a prayer asking for His help.

Also, the first day of May is known as May Day.  May marks the blooming of flowers and the arrival of a new season — which is a reason to celebrate. So, share a dance with your family or picking flowers (or dandelions) from your garden.  

Enjoy a terrific weekend.  See you on Monday at our Zoom Meeting.

Love,

Mrs. Dariano

April 24, 2020

Good Morning Class,

Sister Jerilyn would like to share a gospel reflection with you. Just click on the link entitled Gospel reflection.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bKulFFzOnuvxN2StALmNc8VJMGqIt-rR/view?ts=5ea1ef6c 

After viewing the video, discuss some of the questions Sister Jerilyn asked at the end of the reflection with those around you at home.  Following are some questions to help with your disscussion

1.Why didn’t the disciples recognize Jesus as they were walking and talking on the road? 

2.When did they recognize it was Jesus they were talking with? 

3.What questions do you have after hearing the Gospel?  

Today is test day.  You should have recieved them in your email. It was sent early this morning. When taking your tests remember to take your time, read the questions carefully, look for context clues in the sentence, use the process of elimination when you are not sure of the answer, and most important just do your best.  Use your reading book to support your answers.  Take a break between your tests.  Return your Reading and Science tests by Monday. 

It was so nice to see and hear from Fr. Chuck.  Remember he encouraged us to pray during this time that we are home and away from school.  Also, he invited you to join him or Fr. Dave when they do their online Mass.  As you watch theses Masses remember what we have learned about the Four Parts of the Mass.  The Introductory Part, Liturgy of the Word, the Liturgy of the Eucharist, and the Concluding Rites.

Enjoy your weekend.  I will see you on Monday at our 9:30 Zoom Meeting.

Love,

Mrs. Dariano

GOOD MORNING CLASS,

Today is our last class before Easter Break.  I am sure everyone is looking forward to this time of rest from school assignments.  I want to thank you and your parents for all your hard work.  Even though you have no assignments, I would encourage you to continue to read Charlotte’s Web.  Reading every day is very important. Remember “The more that you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”  Dr. Seuss

Tomorrow morning when you get up remember it is Holy Thursday the first day of the Triduum.  As you say your morning prayers and talk to God think about what happened on Holy Thursday and what was to follow. 

I saw this saying on a flag and wanted to share it with you.

During this Easter Season.  May you have the gladness of Easter, which is Hope

                                             The promise of Easter, which is Peace 

                                             The spirit of Easter, which is Love

May you have a Blessed and Happy Easter.

Love,

Mrs. Dariano

Good Morning Class,

I can’t believe it is Friday already. It was great to see everyone at our meeting yesterday.  This weekend is very special because it brings us to Palm Sunday followed by Holy Week.  With your parent’s permission and help watch a video on your computer explaining the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem.  A short video that I found on You Tube was this one entitled Palm Sunday For Kids:  The Triumphal Entry – Luke 19.  Don’t forget to start your day thanking God for all you have and asking for His help today as you begin your lessons.   Enjoy your day and have a great weekend.  See you on Monday at 9:30.  Below is your Spanish assignment for today from Maestra Kimberly.

Love,

In third grade, students learn Spanish though song, stories, games and fun in addition to the material in the Spanish folder.  What is important during this time of remote learning is for the children to continue to be exposed to the language.  I will provide short videos and activities that can help keep the learning fresh and fun and allow the children to move about, something that they will surely need while they are cooped up at home.  Please feel free to play videos as much or as often as you and your child wish, and I encourage you to take a break and move around with your child, too.  We all need to practice self-care habits more than ever and moving our bodies is such a great way to self-regulate!

 

  1. Let us begin the way we always do, by praying the “Ave Maria.”  Remember that God listens with special attention to your prayers and you can tell Jesus and Mary anything you are feeling.  If you need help, you can pray it with this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGcvVmt5wIM.
  2. Watch and count up to 100 with the video “Counting to 100 in Spanish Song” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwnjyAC9uc8&t=155s.
  3. Practice counting at least 5 different things in Spanish.  Some ideas are crayons, legos, shoes, fruit, cheerios, pennies. Use your imagination and have fun!
  4. Work on IXL Spanish Unit 1C Numbers 11-20. 
  5. Movement Moment:  Watch the video “CantaJuego - Chuchuwa (Version Mexico)” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdwJLfFRe1M) This is a song is new!  It’s a popular kid’s music activity where each part of the song adds a step in how to position your body while you dance.  See if you can follow and dance with them!

 

April 2

Good Morning Class,

It is nice to see the sun shining on this beautiful day.  I am looking forward to seeing your sunny faces today at 9:30 at our Zoom Meeting.   Please bring your science book and the picture you drew on March 25 of the parts of a plant.  I want to show you how the sunflower seeds we put in our window at school have progressed.  Also Mrs. Frank sent you a lesson to do for Computer Class.  It is attached to your work for the day.                           If you didn't receive your invitation to Zoom, please contact me.   Don't forget, only one person can speak at a time.  We will raise our hand and wait to be called on.  If everyone speaks at once, we will not be able to hear what anyone wants to share.  See you soon.

Love,

Mrs. Dariano

 

APRIL 1, 2020

Good Morning Class,  

Did anyone play an April Fools joke on their parents or sibling?

April showers bring May flowers,

That is what they say. 

If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring?

Something to think about. 

Well, it is Wednesday already and gym day.  Follow the instructions Mrs. Gibison gave you last Wednesday, March 25 for gym class.  You can scroll down to March 25 to find those instructions.

Do your best and enjoy your day.  See you tomorrow at 9:30. If you did not receive an invitation to our Thursday Meeting, please email me so I can send an invitation.  

Love,

Mrs. Dariano

MARCH 30

Good Morning Class,

This is such a special day.  I hope everyone received my invitation to meet this morning at 9:30. I am so excited to literally see everyone through the technology of Zoom.  It will be great to hear from each of you.  Everyone will have an opportunity to say Hi! and share their thoughts.  One important rule, really two,  we need to remember this:  Only one person can speak at a time.  We will raise our hand and wait to be called on.  If everyone speaks at once, we will not be able to hear what anyone wants to share.  See you soon.

Love,

Mrs. Dariano

Good Morning Class,

Hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful day God gave us yesterday.  Once again don’t forget to start your day talking to God in prayer. He is just waiting to hear from you.  Everyone is doing a great job on their assignments.  I appreciate all your hard work. Today is Gym day and Mrs. Gibison has left directions for what she would like you to do today. So, you could go put on your gym uniforms and follow her instruction for today’s Gym Class.  Using your wonderful imaginations just picture yourself heading out to the black top.  As you spread out, I know you can hear her voice as she directs you in prayer and physical activity.  What a great way to start your day.  Here is what she would like you to do.

Enjoy your day.

Love,

Mrs. Dariano

                                                                        MARCH 24

Good Morning Class,

Today the sun should be out and hopefully you too will go outside and enjoy the signs of spring.  As we study about plants, we can see the trees starting to flower and leaves starting to emerge from what looked like dead branches.  The color of yellow can be seen in the flowers and bushes all around my neighborhood.  What do you see when you step outside?  What do you hear?  What smells do you smell?  God gave us this beautiful day, take a moment to enjoy it.

Once again begin your day saying your prayers.  Today especially, think about the words of the Our Father and how God provides for all our needs.

Today you do have some IXL and SpellingCity activities to do.

Enjoy your day.

Love,

Mrs. Dariano

                                                           

 MARCH 23, 2020

Good Moring Class,

Well, I hope everyone had a nice weekend with their family.  The weather was very nice, so hopefully you were able to get outside and enjoy it.  The pirate could never learn his alphabet because he was always lost at C! 

Do you know a snake’s favorite subject in school? Hisssstory

Over the weekend I realized we, you, your family, and I are living history at this moment.  Just a thought, you could begin to keep a journal of what you are experiencing and what is happening in the world around you.  Someday when you are much older someone will ask you, “What was it like when the whole world was experiencing the Coronavirus Pandemic?”

What are you noticing about how your life is changing?  Online learning, stores closed, no Mass, except online, professional sport games cancelled, no going out with your friends. 

Thanks to technology we still can stay in touch with one another. This will pass and hopefully we will be grateful for all those things we take for granted.  Family, friends, getting together to play and share a meal.  God is ever so close to us; we just need to talk to him about how we feel.  He is our hope in times like these.  Continue to do your morning prayers and keep our country, troops and leaders in your prayers.

Looking forward to a great week. Check the Homework page for today’s assignments.  If you have any questions, have your parents e-mail me.

Love,

Mrs. Dariano

                                                            MARCH 20, 2020

 Good Morning Class,

This ends our first week of online distance learning.  I hope it hasn’t been too stressful.  I know anything new for me can be a challenge because change is hard.

I thought I would start out with a riddle.  I know you know why five and six were afraid of seven.

Why? Because seven eight nine.  But do you know why the pirate could never learn the alphabet?  Think about it?  Think about it, I will give you the answer on Monday.

Maybe you have a joke or riddle you would like to share with your classmates.  Send them to me and I will post one every day for everyone to enjoy.

Once again, I encourage you to start your day talking to God.  Begin by reciting those prayers we say together remembering God’s goodness and faithfulness to us.  Though we are not physically together, we are united in spirit. 

Today, Maestra Kimberly has a Spanish assignment for you to do.  Please check the Distance Learning Folder for instructions. 

Also, if you have completed an assignment and it has not shown up on my web report page, don’t get upset.  We are all trying to do our best and I know how hard everyone is working.  If you have free time, redo the assignment.  Also, it may show up later.

Yesterday, Sister Jerilyn asked if we would pray the Rosary at 4:00 pm with Pope Francis.  It is good to know that we have hope in our Savior, we are not alone through this difficult time. 

Today we would be doing the Stations of the Cross together as we continue our Lenten Journey. During this time of Lent with your parents or guardian’s approval, find a kid’s video on the Stations of the Cross that you could follow along with.  This can be done with your family.

Most important to remember this weekend is to set time aside to spend with God.  Praying together, reading the Bible, watching the Mass on TV, or sharing the good things God has done for you this week with your family.

Have a blessed and enjoyable weekend with your family and be a blessing to those around you.  What we do for others, we do for God.

Love,

Mrs. Dariano

*We will start Week Two on Monday.  At that time two days of work will be posted.

Good Morning 3rd Graders,

Mrs. Dariano

Dear Parents,

Just some clarification regarding the Religion Booklet Project.

In the envelope you received I included a piece of construction paper and a tablet of writing paper.  To do the project you use the construction paper as the cover.  Your child can draw the four parts of the Mass on it or just colorfully label it "The Four Parts of the Mass".  The writing paper is for the Table of Contents, a page or two for each part of the Mass. There are four individual sections.  When finished staple it together, with child’s name on the back to receive credit.    If you have construction paper at home, you can use it. You are also welcomed to use more than one piece of construction paper for this project. This is similar to the booklets on The Seasons of the Church, that we made in class.  The children can be as creative as they can be.  PLEASE NOTE:  The importance of this project is to stay on topic.  Not being an artist myself, I grade the pictures only on how they relate to the topic.  I hope this helps.  Thank you.

Mrs. Dariano

Good Morning Students,

It is a beautiful day outside.

Hopefully everyone will take advantage of the sun and warmer temperatures.  As we are exercising our intellect it is also important that we exercise our bodies.  As this is Gym Day remember what Mrs. Gibison would be encouraging you to do.  Eat healthy, drink plenty of water, and if you were out on the blacktop at school today do your routine workout.  Most important is to stay healthy and keep active.  Give your brain a rest and your body some fun time outside.  Enjoy this beautiful day the Lord has given us.

Spiritually let us look to God, in prayer for the safety and health of families, friends, our country and our world. 

We are a blessed nation. God is our hope and help in times of trouble.

Miss each of you.

Love,

Mrs. Dariano

 

         Dear Parents,  

         Please continue to use the packets that have been sent home with information on what is expected of your child during this period of online studies.  You can also check the Homework page and the Distance Learning Folder for information.  Each day your child should follow the directions for that given day.  Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have regarding the assignments.

         Every morning we do a routine of Prayers before class starts.  I would encourage you to have your child recite the prayers, (maybe with you) before beginning their day.  This is a time when we need God’s help to keep us safe and free from anxiety.

         I am praying that everyone stays healthy and we will be together as soon as possible.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Kathleen Dariano
