Third Grade News and Up Coming Events

WELCOME to Third – Grade.  

The students and I had a great first week of school.  We welcomed some new friends and said hello to old friends that we’ve known since Kindergarten or maybe even preschool.

We celebrated our first birthday of the new school year and look forward to celebrating 25 more (We will celebrate the MOST important birthday in our Catholic Faith ~ Jesus.)  (I love to celebrate my birthday with the kids so I count myself in as well.)

Please read the STUDENT handbook for details about sending in birthday treats this year.  The rules have eased up a bit but please be sure to read and follow all the specific details.

After you and your child have read through the STUDENT HANDBOOK please be sure that you and your child sign and return the acknowledgment page to me.  Please do this as soon as possible.  THANK YOU!!!

  • Monday: Spanish
  • Tuesday: Gym (please be sure to wear the full gym uniform)
  • Wednesday: Art
  • Thursday: TLC
  • Friday: Gym (please be sure to wear the full gym uniform) and Library.  Student should return their Library books every Friday even if they want to extend the due date.
