Another exciting week at STA! Students can wear pink shirts with jeans and a $1 donation to help support breast cancer research. The Making Strides Walk will take place Sunday morning at 7:00 at Balboa Park.
This week we will have a religion and social studies test on Friday. We will be reviewing social studies chapter 1 all week, and a study guide will be completed in class.
Also, please don’t forget to donate items for our “Chocolate Lovers” basket for the pancake breakfast! I promise not to eat all the treats in class!
I cannot believe it is the fifth week of school already! Time is flying by and we are having so much fun in third grade. If you have not gotten a chance, please take a look at our blog: nmurphysta.edublogs.org. Please ask your child for the password–I’m sure they would love to show you what they’ve been working on!
Here are a few important announcements for the week:
- Tuesday: Force and Motion science test (we made flashcards last week and have been reviewing the information in class. A study guide will come home tonight.)
- Thursday: Progress reports go home. Please sign and return.
- Friday: Religion chapter 3 test, spirit-dress
- Next Tuesday 10/3: Grammar test on capitalization, punctuation, and spelling
- Wednesday 10/4: Blessing of the animals at morning assembly
- Next Friday 10/6: Chapter 1 math test, and religion chapter 4 test.
- Friday is also Grandparents Day!
Lastly, congratulations to Eden for winning the spirit-shirt drawing competition! Please be sure to order one of our newly designed shirts!
This year the school is doing a new type of fundraiser. The students have the opportunity to design our new spirit dress shirt! Details can be found in the newsletter, and all submissions are due Wednesday.
On Friday, students can wear jeans for $1 to help raise money for the hurricane fund. This will also be the make-up picture day for anyone who missed it on Friday. School pictures need to be in dress-up uniform. Friday is also early dismissal.
Thank you to everyone who attended Back to School Night! It was so nice to meet all of you!
This week the class will have their first religion test on chapter 1. We will review the material Monday, and then they will take the test Tuesday. I always encourage the students to take their books home to study and review the information.
Friday is Picture Day, so the students will need to wear their dress-up uniforms.
The first week was so great, and I know this week will be even better. We have some exciting things happening this week.
- Back to School Night is Thursday from 6:30-8:30
- 3rd Grade class Mass on Friday at 9:00 in the chapel
Welcome back to school! I’m so looking forward to this school year! Please check back to see the weekly homework and announcements.
