Greetings! The excitement of the holidays is definitely in the air...as we continue to study and reflect during Advent, we are preparing our hearts for the birth of Jesus. As always, 3rd. grade is very busy indeed. We read and acted out, The Night Before Christmas by Clement Moore for our Kindergarten pals on Friday. Now everyone is ready for our school's Christmas Concert on Dec.19th. Students must be here by 5:45 pm. that evening. Thank you!

Reading: our new story is "Catch It and Run" genre: MYTH. Myths are old stories that have been told orally for generations. Since myths explore events in nature, this seems to be an attraction for this age group.

Spelling: (short list) the vocabulary used in the content....words are:winter coyote polite rumpus tepee breathe chipmunk freezing whisked flame *No test on Friday this week

*reminder we will have an ice cream sundae party on Dec. 21st..

* Dec. 22nd is an Early Dismissal day................we are still collecting boxtops!! Many thanks for your support.

Merry Christmas and many blessings for a happy, healthy New Year!

This week has been hectic, with fundraisers and we started off with Sunday's family mass. Thanks to all who support our school in its endeavors...may the peace and joy of this season be with us all! Red Robin Fundraiser was held on Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2017...prizes were also given! Hooray!!! This Friday, we will have school Mass for the holy day of obligation...we are honoring Mary, our Mother. 

*reminder 3rd. grade is participating in The Festival of Trees at the Enfield Library here in town. Its a SBS tradition. all are welcome....check for your official invitation on Monday. (opening night Dec.14th.)

Spelling: the list for this week will also be used next week....our first Spelling test is on Friday, Dec. 15th. (we will do a pre-assessment review only this Friday)

words:beautiful safely kindness finally spotless worthless illness helpful daily suddenly wireless quietly fairness cheerful painful challenge words are: anxiously thoughtfully cautiously tardiness breathless

Students will be assigned a writing homework assignment for "Christmas Around the World"...each child will be given a country to research the holiday traditions. We are also busy practicing our cursive writing...can't believe we are already into our new trimester.

*Please note: check school times, we really must make an effort to arrive on time in the morning. If there are any changes in student's dismissal routine a note and/or phone call needs to verify that change! Our students safety is our main concern....Thanks.*
