Welcome to Third Grade/Homework

 

Welcome to Third Grade!

Wow! A whole month of school has gone by already! The children are trying their best to adjust to a new grade! They are working hard at copying notes, listening to directions and focusing on their work. They are getting used to our rountine of copying homework into the planner and carefully taking home the correct books.

Please continue to check planners daily and to sign the test folder on Wednesdays.

We are getting ready for International Night on Oct. 24th.. the children are very excited about performing on stage!

We have been praying a decade of the rosary each day and will continue for the month.

On October 14th we will begin Terra Nova Testing. Please be sure to have sharpened pencils with erasers. Children should be sure to eat breakfast and have a good night of sleep to better concentrate during the testing. It will be reading and math related.

On Sunday, October 19th we will go to Mass together at 9am and then have our first meeting to prepare for Penance and Communion. We will be finished by 11am. Please plan on joining us for both Mass and the meeting.

This month’s Book Report is due on October 28th. Children should read a Halloween related book and complete the sheet that was given. Books by Cam Jansen, Ready Freddy Series, Henry and Mudge, or about ghosts, pumkins are all good choices.

Let’s have a great October full of learning, fall and fun… and of course A Happy Halloween!
