Grade 3

December 18th ~ 22nd

Hello Grade 3 Families!

This coming week is the third week of Advent and the last week of school before the Christmas Holidays! We will be lighting the pink 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

Thank you for having had your child bring back the cleaned and ironed white robe they will be wearing for the Christmas concert.

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 the clothes they will be wearing under the  white robes.

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

The students will not have spelling words this week due to the many Christmas activities that will be taking place.
