Proud to be
Ambassadors for Christ

Third Grade

I am so proud of the amazing job your children did on their saint projects!  Each one was a masterpiece!  You could see the pride in their faces as they presented their oral reports. If you are at school, stop by and see the visual aids. We had dolls, statues, mosaics, etchings, paintings, sketches, candles, and even Lego saints!  I loved the creativity. Tomorrow third grade will host Mass for the last time this school year. Please join us if you are free.

We continue our novel study of “Charlotte’s Web.”  The students are already falling in love with Wilbur and Charlotte.  When we finish the book, we will watch the movie to compare and contrast the two versions of the classic story.

In math, we are finishing up chapter 14 this week and will begin chapter 15, Liquid Volume and Mass.  We will also continue math multiplication and division drills.  Please work on this skill over the summer.  Students have worked very hard to learn their math facts. Help them get off to a great start in fourth grade by nurturing these skills.  I encourage you to have your child continue using Moby Max over the summer.

In science, we will be wrapping up our unit on climate and weather and will be learning about forces, motion and magnets.  This is a very basic unit on engineering!

Although our school year is almost over (four weeks but who’s counting?) we will continue to learn up until the last week of school.  Please help keep your child on track with homework assignments.

It has been a great year.  I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know your children and love each and every one of them. I’m sure you know you have some pretty wonderful kids.  Thank you for the sacrifices you make to give them the gift of a Catholic education!
