Religion Class Homework & Announcements

Future Homework Postings

Hey students!

Since OLG launched a new website (fall 2013) we, as a middle school team of teachers, have all decided to post our homework and class happenings in a relatively similar fashion on each of our respective OLG web pages. Because of this I will no longer be posting homework at CatholicReligionTeacher.com. Instead, all homework, announcements, and class going ons will be posted here: http://www.olgschool.net/group/mr-aitchisons-classroom-religion

The majority of all other class and unit resources will continue to be uploaded at CatholicReligionTeacher.com.

Important Announcement:

Hey students! Sorry for missing class today but I kind of had something more important come up…

Woohoo!!! It’s a girl! Piper Mae Aitchison was born at 2 am on Thursday, May 23 and weighed in at 7 lbs. 4 oz. with a length of 19.5 inches. She’s been bright-eyed and the cause of many smiles already. Big sister Mary is as proud as can be and Kate and I feel overwhelmingly blessed. Yaaaaaaaaay God!
.
Mr. Groebner will be my substitute teacher for the remainder of the year. Please be good to him!
.
7th grade, I’m glad I’ll get to have you back again for Religion next year. 8th grade, I’m bummed that I won’t be around to finish off such a great year with you, but I’ll for sure be seeing you at graduation. Enjoy your last days at OLG!
.
Be saints!
Mr. Aitchison
