Grade 3

December 12th ~16th

Hello Grade 3 Families!

This coming week is the third week of Advent, and we will be lighting the candle on the Advent wreath which symbolizes joy. There will definitely be a lot of joy in the classroom this week with the Christmas Concert presentations and the Advent Party!

“ – But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord.”

Luke 2:10-11

The students brought home their Christmas gift for you earlier than anticipated: this is due to an ant issue in the Grade 2 classroom. The opening of the gift should only be on Christmas day. Until then, it can be a Christmas decoration or a present under the tree 🎄💜✨!

Thank you for having had your child bring what they will be wearing for the Christmas concert to school, so that we have everything ready for this coming Tuesday 🤗💜🎶!

The students will change for the 1 pm presentation on Tuesday, in which they will be staying in the gym for the whole performance. The Grade 3 students will then be going home in their concert clothes.

When they come back to school for the evening presentation, they should be wearing the same concert clothes they wore in the afternoon 🌟! They will bring back their St. Paul uniform when they go home at the end of the evening.
