Grade 3

December 13th ~ 17th

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 Advent Choral Celebration Concert presentations!

We will also be having our Advent Party after mass on Thursday^^*

“ – 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 eldest or only students brought the family tickets to the Advent Choral Celebration Concert home on Friday. We talked about the importance of their letting you know about the tickets if they had them in the zippered pouch, as soon as they arrived home.

This week, we will continue to collect donations for the Advent Charity Project. Please see the email from the school office for more details. Thank you in advance for your donations^^*

Please read and initial your child’s agenda on a daily basis, along with their reading log. Thank you^^*

Also, please continue to be mindful that class begins promptly at 8:45 am, so children should arrive by 8:40 am if possible.
