Rockin’ in Week 10
Hello 3rd grade families! I hope everyone is doing well this week. We have another busy week on our hands! First, our school is celebrating Red Ribbon Week this week. This is when your students take a stand against drugs and sign the pledge to be drug free! Yesterday we celebrated by “Being on a Drug Free Team” and sporting our favorite team’s jersey. We also signed the pledge banner that is hanging in the front hallway of the school. Today we are celebrating by “Putting a Cap on Drugs” and sporting a favorite/funny hat. Tomorrow, Wednesday October 23, is “Sock it to Drugs”! Be sure to wear your crazy socks. Thursday, October 24, will be our door decorating contest–please stay tuned for pictures! Finally, Friday students are allowed to wear red in support of drug awareness. Also, Friday is our Fall Party! Students will be rotating elementary classrooms from 1:30 – 3:00 completing different Fall themed activities. I am really looking forward to this week!
It was nice seeing most of you at conferences on Friday. I appreciate you taking the time out of your schedules to come meet and talk with me. I want to remind all of you tat you may contact me at any time through e-mail or the school office with any comments or concerns you may have.
This Week’s Playlist:
Religion: Finish up Chapter 5. Quiz on Wednesday. Also, we are the elected classroom for Thursday’s mass. This means that three students from our classroom will be participating in the mass this week.
