Grade 3

December 17th-21st

Hello Grade 3 Families!

This week of Advent is the week of Joy as we joyously wait for the birth of Jesus, and there will definitely be a lot of joy in the air this week at St. Paul’s^^* It’s hard to believe that we are already approaching the end of 2018; it feels as though time has just flown by since the beginning of the school year! I  am definitely enjoying the time I am spending with your children!

On Monday the Grade 3 students will start to make their gingerbread houses, Tuesday it will be the Christmas Concert, and on Thursday we will have our Advent Family Breakfast!

Since this week will be extremely busy, we will not be doing the agendas or the RED. I still encourage the students to read at home for 30 minutes every evening.

Here is the information for the parents who have volunteered to help the students change into their costumes for the performance:

~ The parents who have volunteered for the afternoon performance, please be at school by 12:25 pm. 

~ The parents who have volunteered for the evening performance, please be at school by 6:15 pm.
