3rd Grade Weekly Wave

RELIGION  In Chapter 3 we have talked about how we show our love for each other.  We have read the story of the Paralyzed Beggar and St. Martin of Tours.  We have also discussed the “Domestic Family” – the idea that our family is the first to teach us about Jesus and how to treat others.
Our test will be on Tuesday. Please see the link below for the TEST HINTS!  Mass will be on Thursday.

GRAMMAR /VOCAB.We will work on irregular plural nouns in Grammar.  In our Vocabulary notebooks we will be working on Lesson 4 words.  I would like to have a quiz over Lessons 3 & 4 before Fall Break. 

MATH In chapter 2 we have been working on tally charts, frequency charts, picture graphs, bar graphs, and line plots!  Please keep working on the basic addition and subtraction facts!  This will help when we get started on Multiplication, which will be here before we know it!  🙂 Please see the TEST HINTS link for the chapter test.  I have the test planned for next week…Wednesday, Oct. 9.

JUPITER ALERTS
If you do not have your Jupiter account set up for alerts through email or text messages, please consider doing so in the near future.  I have been using the Jupiter system to log in behaviors (good and not-so-good).  If set up correctly, you can receive these alerts when I send them.  This will also be a convenient and quick way for you to receive alerts in case of snow delays or closings. **On a side note, I am not completely sure how to do this as a parent, but from my end as a teacher, I have to go under “set-up” and click the notifications on that I want to have for alerts.  If you have questions, please let me know or feel free to call the office.  We will figure it out together!  🙂 

PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES
A reminder that Conferences are being scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 9 or Thursday, Oct. 10.  If you have not signed up for a time on the SIGN-UP GENIUS that Mrs. Schroeder sent out a few weeks ago, please do so as soon as possible!  **ALSO** Please note that we will be doing an E-Learning Day on Friday, Oct. 11! There will be no school that day.  More information on this is to come home in the next week or two! Be watching for this information!

School Sweatshirts –
 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.

TARDIES/SPIRIT DAYS –
It is very important for the students to be at school every day and on time and ready to go each day!  An important part of the day is the first 10-15 minutes when the kids come in the room.  They need time to talk, turn in work, use the restroom, etc. before we get our day started!  When the kids come in late, they are missing the time to settle in and get prepared for the day.  Please try to have your child/ren to school before the tardy bell rings at 8 am!
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.
