Mission Statement: 
Mishawaka Catholic School builds disciples of Jesus Christ through faith formation, academic excellence, and service to others, in accordance with the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
 
Hello,  I am Ms. Gina Mynsberge. Welcome to the fifth grade. I am excited as this will be my twenty-second year teaching fifth grade. I have a degree in elementary education with a minor in French and an endorsement in Reading. I have a graduate minor in mild disabilities. Both of my children attended St. Joseph Grade School before the consolidation, and they graduated from Marian High School and Ball State University. I enjoy walking, gardening, and traveling.
This year I will be teaching Math, Science, and Religion. I believe in challenging students to problem solve as they learn. I value open communication, so please email me if you ever have any  questions or concerns.

A note form Ms. Mynsberge

I am doing my best to state what homework will be in advance. If we need more practice, the assignment may change, and I place all changes on my website and in the student planners.

 

 

Religion- we will next begin Chapter 5 titled Prayer and Worship. The chapter objective is to know the Paschal Mystery and to learn how to engage in Catholic forms of personal and communal prayer to deepen one’s spiritual life. We will draw a character map of interests, good choices, struggles, and talents.  We will learn that temperance, fortitude, and justice are values that lead to being good.

 

Science- we will continue to work on the objective to know Indiana decomposers.

If our grass grows, we will add our crickets, worms, and pill bugs to our terrariums. We will complete a sheet on Indiana decomposers, and we will look 4 decomposers up and draw them in the computer lab.

God bless you. Thank you for the gift of your child.

Religion- we will work on the project for our door titled “A Window into the Life of a Saint. We will make a large picture of the saint, and have smaller pictures of the trials in his life, his accomplishments, and his/her early childhood, and a “fun fact.” We will next begin Chapter 5 titled Prayer and Worship. The chapter objective is to know the Paschal Mystery and to learn how to engage in Catholic forms of personal and communal prayer to deepen one’s spiritual life.
