Grade 3A


News Letter week of Dec. 13- 23 2014


Christmas Program will be this Wednesday at 7PM.  Children should report to the gym at 6:45.  Parents, please keep coats with you and make sure your child goes to the bathroom at home before the show (there tends to be a long line!).  We ask that children dress up for this event (no sneakers, jeans, or sweats). 

The children will sit together as a class on the gym floor while the families (all are invited!) sit on the bleachers.  We will be exchanging a Secret Santa gift, the children picked names.  The gift should be about 5 dollars.  We will exchange them on Dec. 23. On Dec. 23, children wear their uniform, but can wear Christmas accessories. Tuesday we will have a Social Studies test.  We are now reading Mr. Popper’s Penguins, ask the children about the book.  Again I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart, for all your support and love during this difficult time. Jesus and Mary love you, and so do I!!!!!!   God is good all the time, all the time God is good.  Enjoy your Christmas and New Year, and God Bless you and your family.    Love Mrs. K
