Tomorrow, the grade 3K class will be participating in the Eucharist Adoration in the library from 10:00 - 10:30. Parents are more than welcome to join us. The after school program will also be holding a fundraiser tomorrow at noon for the Ronald McDonald House. Students are invited to bring change tomorrow. Lemonade and bracelets are both 25 cents. If you haven't sent your hammer with your child yet, please do so. We will be using it on Friday. Read 20 - 30 minutes.
Just a reminder that tomorrow is a 0-4 times table test and Thursday students will have a multiplication unit test. The math booklets have been sent home so that you can help your child study. Students should be able to draw an array, represent multiplication sentences with a picture, create multiplication sentences to match a picture, and print addition and multiplication sentences for the pictures given (see page 1 in the booklet). Friday is crazy hair and hat day for your child. We also need you to send a hammer to school for an art project for Friday. Please label your hammer with your name before sending it. If there are any mom's (not dad's this time) that would like to come in at 9:30 - 10:00 on Friday to help, that would be wonderful!
Today we celebrated James' birthday. His mother brought in delicious cupcakes. Thank you! Students will be bringing home another poetry reading comprehension assignment. Please review this with your child then sign and return it to school. Just a reminder that we will have a 0-4 times table test on Wednesday. We have been watching the pupa change into butterflies. Some of them were ready to be released today. They didn't like the weather. Read 20 - 30 minutes.
Students completed their 0-3 Multiplication Quiz today. Please sign it and return to school. Next week, we will have a multiplication test from 0-4 so if you can study some more with your child that would be wonderful. Bridges can come home now, so if you would like to pick them up from school that would be wonderful. Next Monday, students will be tested on their Spelling City words. Read 20 - 30 minutes.
Students will have a quiz on the 0-3 times tables on Wednesday next week. Please study these at home. Mrs. Khatib is away until Wednesday next week. We have started our poetry unit and we are still working on our multiplication in math. We made doves for our Pentacost Celebration. Tomorrow students will be doing a garbage clean-up. I have purchased Vinyl gloves for them to use. No school on Monday. Read 20 - 30 minutes.

Mrs. Olsen has assigned the bridge project to the class and this is due on Wednesday. Please bring your bridges to school. We are collecting money for the Pregnancy Care Center this week.
