• Dear Grade 3 Parents,

    We had a fantastic Catholic Schools Week which began on Saturday, January 25, 2020 with grade 2 receiving their first Sacrament of Reconciliation in a lovely prayer service with Father Ron and their families. We had a beautiful opening mass for Catholic Schools Week on Sunday, January 26, 2020 followed by an open house at St. Joseph School from preschool through grade 8. I got to visit with some former students whose own children will be starting preschool in our early childhood program. As you know, the rest of the week was filled with several activities to show our appreciation for everyone who helps to make our school such a wonderful and happy learning environment. I sent home a few pictures which I hope you liked. I especially like the picture of the children when they won "Family Feud" for the entire school, and we will proudly display our 3 inch trophy!!!😂🏆 Our activity filled week ended on Friday, January 31, 2020 where our school once again gathered for mass at St. Joseph Church. Our grand finale for Catholic schools week was Friday evening with a phenomenal performance of Alice in Wonderland by students from grades one through eight, brilliantly directed by Mrs. Chiodini assisted by Mrs. Melino and numerous parents. It was a super week enjoyed by all.

    I look forward to buckling down this week to all of our regular academics. 📚📓📄✏ 

    Please read my academic word document which is attached to this email and contains detailed information about what I will be teaching this week in religion; reading comprehension; spelling; grammar; phonics; and mathematics.

    I encourage you to read my last paragraph in the mathematics section of my word document which contains some important information for you to know.

    Report cards were sent out on Friday. If you have any questions about your child's report card, please contact me and we will set up a conference as soon as possible. Otherwise, please return your child's report card to me by Thursday, February 6, 2020 so that I can have them all organized for next time.

    Sincerely,

    Mrs. Jane Ellis

    PS You can expect a cute picture on February 2,2020 in your email!
