3rd Grade Weekly Wave                

RELIGION –  We will finish up Chapter 14 this week, however, due to other subject areas finishing up as well, we will not have a test over this chapter.  We will just move right on to Chapter 15. In this chapter we will talk about being faithful to our commitments, the mission of the Apostles, how Jesus teaches us to be faithful, and how we can serve others. 

**Don’t forget that all students should be in Mass uniform.
Girls – plaid jumper or skirt with white shirt/blouse –
We are now back to the girls being able to wear ONLY THE PLAID SKIRT OR JUMPER!!
(NO PANTS!)
Boys – blue pants and white shirt

 SPELLING – Our words this week will come from chapters 8-14 of Charlotte’s Web!  Please help your child study a few minutes each night leading up to our test on Wednesday.  These are tougher words and will take a little more study time!

Charlotte’s Web Spelling Words

READING This week we will be reading Chapters 8-14 of “Charlotte’s Web.”  Please be sure your child is finishing any reading homework at home if they have anything to complete.  We struggled a little last week with students NOT completing their work!  We will be trying to “catch up” this week with missing or incomplete assignments. 

GRAMMAR /VOCAB.Our Grammar and Vocabulary will come from our “Charlotte’s Web” story.

MATH   We will finish up Chapter 11 this week. I am hoping for a test on Thursday, so I have included a link to the TEST HINTS for Chapter 11. In our next chapter, we will start talking about fractions!

C. a few years back!

We will be going to President Benjamin Harrison Home on Wednesday, April 17.  I am still missing a few permission slips and payment of $6 for each student.  Students will need to wear their school uniform and bring a sack lunch and drink.  Parents will also need to bring a sack lunch and drink.

RONCALLI SUMMER CAMP-
Please see the link below for Summer Camps being offered at Roncalli.
Summer Camp Bulletin(newsletter-parish bulletins)

School Sweatshirts / Winter Coats
 Please be aware that the uniform policy says “School sweatshirts are the only ones allowed and must be worn with a collared uniform shirt underneath.”  
I usually have my window opened at least a little all year long, so if your child is one to get cold easily, you may want to make sure they have and bring, a school uniform sweatshirt to wear in class.

Please be sure your child comes to school each day with a coat or heavy jacket.  Hats and gloves are also good to have tucked into the pockets!  We will go outside unless it is 25 degrees or below!
ALL STUDENTS NEED TO BE PREPARED FOR OUTDOOR RECESS!!!

TARDIES/SPIRIT DAYS –
AS STATED IN THE HANDBOOK – If your child is tardy 3 times during the month, they will not be allowed to dress out of uniform for Spirit Day.  If they have 6 or more tardies in the same month, they will not be allowed to dress out of uniform nor will they be allowed to participate in Spirit Day.
The timing on this goes from SPIRIT DAY of one month to the day before the SPIRIT DAY of the next month.   

PE CLOTHES –
ALL STUDENTS should be bringing their school PE UNIFORM each Thursday and Friday!  I understand that every once in a while, they may forget, but too many times of forgetting will lead to lowered scores in PE, along with the student clipping down in class for not having their PE clothes. 

We no longer need to make sure to have sweatpants or leggings on for dismissal!  I hope we have warmed up enough to not them!
