Happy April Third Grade Families!
I have some important reminders for you:
Please return the filled CRS Rice Bowls to school by Friday April 7th.
Please return the Care Package for the Get on the Bus ministry after Easter vacation on Monday April 24th.
This Friday April 7th The Living Stations of the Cross will be presented by the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. This prayer service will take place at 2:00 pm on the school yard. You are invited to attend. Please see below what your child should bring to school on this day to change into for the prayer service. (If we get rained out on Friday, we’ll probably have to reschedule for sometime next week-stay tuned).
Riley (Jesus)-wear white T-shirt, navy or uniform short, sandals
Daniel, Chris, Justin, Landon, Anthony (Guards)-white uniform polo shirt, navy uniform shorts, and uniform shoes
Emiliano & Eddie (thieves)-old looking, ripped, or stained solid dark colored t-shirt, uniform shorts, and sandals.
Quinn (Joseph of Arimathea)-a solid colored sheet or bathrobe and sandals. I have a brighter colored sash for you to show your wealth.
Eliza (Mary)-wear a light blue or white shirt of any kind and any light color leggings. I have a light blue gown to put over your shirt and leggings and a head covering for you. Bring any sandals.
Jadelyn (Angel)-bring a white or light colored outfit (T-shirt & leggings) to wear under the white angel tunic I have for you. Bring white shoes if you have them and a halo of any kind if you can buy or make it. I have a tunic and wings.
All other third graders are part of the CROWD/MOURNERS or SIGN HOLDERS:
1 solid colored bathrobe or sheet (to drape around body) to look like a tunic. Earth or muted colors are best. But send whatever you can. DO NOT go out and buy anything special.
1 belt/rope (can be the belt from bathrobe)
1 muted/solid color pillow case or material for head covering WITH rope to tie around head
OR Girls could choose to wear a scarf or shawl over head
School shoes are FINE or students can bring flip flops or sandals
**In social studies we are currently studying many Native American tribes. We will write an essay about the tribes and complete activities/make crafts inspired by these tribes in class. At home, students will be responsible for choosing a tribe (from those we are studying) and making a diorama/model of the type of house they lived in. This housing model will be due on Thursday May 11th and will displayed at The International Dinner. In next week’s announcements I will list the tribes/housing types from which to choose and more specifics about the diorama/housing model.**
Wednesday April 5th-Social Studies Chapter 6 Test
Friday April 7th–
Spelling Test-10 words: hearthstones, eagerly, paddock, shuffling, fogbound, energetic, pioneer, married, believed, making
Math Test-on all nightly homework
Religion Test-Chapter 12
*We’ll be taking a break from weekly reading/vocabulary/grammar tests for awhile. We are currently doing a novel-study of Sarah Plain and Tall. Students will be graded on in-class reading/vocabulary activities and quizzes. But there is nothing to study for at home. Students just need in-class focus and participation as we work through this novel chapter by chapter together.*
Thank You and Have a Blessed Week,
