RELIGION – We will be working on the Unit Three Review this week as well as the Holy Week Chapter in our Religion Book. We will have Washing of the Feet on Holy Thursday instead of Mass. On Good Friday we will watch our 8th graders present “Mary’s Way of the Cross.” This is a very moving and emotional presentation. Please consider joining us at 12:15 in the church.
**Don’t forget students should wear Mass Uniform on mass days! Now that we are past Spring Break, the Mass Uniform is back to being the plaid skirt or jumper
(NO PANTS) with a white shirt for the girls. Boys is still blue pants and white shirt. Girls may still wear tights under their skirts or jumper, but leggings will need to be taken off, as they are not part of the school uniform.
SPELLING – Our words this week have -s, -ed, and -ing endings (names, named, naming). We will have our tests on Thursday and Friday this week due to our field trip on Wednesday. You can find the link to the next three weeks of words below.
READING – Our story this week is called “Beatrice’s Goat” We will be working on vocabulary, cause & effect, and editorials in a newspaper. We will test on Friday.
GRAMMAR /VOCAB. – In Grammar this week we will be working on subject and object pronouns. In our Vocabulary book we will be doing a lesson on roots and suffixes (-ment, -ness,
-able, -ible, and -ous)
MATH – We will finish up the geometric figures this week with things like symmetry, numbers on a number line, and ordered pairs. We will also do some review for our ISTEP tests that will be next week.
Please keep working on addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts at home! The more practice the better! 🙂
SCIENCE – We will start on our next chapter in Science next week.
SOCIAL STUDIES – I would like to have a test over Chapter 4 on Tuesday or Thursday. Keep watching for updates in the daily emails and test hints.

There is an opportunity for you to purchase a book before the visit and she will sign the book for your child. Her name is Kimberly Hoffman! We are excited to listen to her read her book and share with us the process of writing and publishing a book! Please consider buying a book! A flyer is coming home today for you to order a book, or you can click on the link below to print one out if their “hardcopy” doesn’t make it to you!
Fridays in Lent – . As a part of our Lenten Journey, the 3rd grade class will participate in the Stations of the Cross every Friday. The times may vary, but I will try to let you know ahead of time when we will be doing this so if you would like to join us you are more than welcome. This Friday, we will probably begin around 1:30 in the Church.
TARDIES – It is very important for the kids to be at school on time each day. When the kids come in late, they miss an important time in the classroom. My mornings are set up for some “new day socializing”. This is chance for the kids to chat and get caught up from the day before. It is also a time of early morning directions on how the day is going to go, what to do for morning work, and our daily prayer circle. If they are late on Fridays, they are missing the same thing in Art class, since we have Art first thing at 8am. When they are late, they seem to be more frazzled because they are trying to get caught up and figure out what is going on in the classroom. I know some mornings can be rough, but please try to have the students to school by 8am when the tardy bell rings.
**PE NOTE – Hopefully we are on the upswing of warmer weather, so students do not need to have long pants to wear after PE for dismissal! YAY for warmer weather!
