Your 3rd grader must be picked up promptly by 3:10.
If you are unable to pick by this time students will be taken
to the cafe to wait for pick-up.

The only doors unlocked for parents and visitors are the front doors.
This is for the safety of our students.

All visitors must sign in and out at the office upon arrival and departure.

Grading System
These classes will be theme based.

Grades will be determined by:
and tests.
Social Studies and Science
Math homework will be sent home nightly.
Problem solving, logic, facts, and all other third grade math objectives will be taught and assessed through manipulatives, cooperative learning activities, individual assignments, and tests.
Students must regularly practice math facts at home on a regular basis.

We will study 3 units in our basal reader:
Friendship, Money, & Imagination

Two grade wide novel studies:
Charlotte’s Web (school provided) and Charlie & the Chocolate Factory (student provided)

Other novel studies are introduced independently depending on your child's reading/ELA teacher.

Our religious education program was developed
on the four pillars of the Catholic Church.
These four pillars are identified by the words believe, worship, live, and pray.

At the beginning of each chapter a take-home family time page will be sent home to give family members the opportunity to extend the chapter.

BlestAreWe.com contains online versions of the family time, chapter review games, glossary of important terms, and various other resources.

Weekly Homework
Homework will be posted in each classroom's
homework board and on classroom websites.
*** Very Important***
Daily Homework must be written into student
planners daily and is to be used as the primary
resource for homework. The website is a great
tool but is subject to change and does not include
classwork that is incomplete or possible
impromptu assignments throughout the
school day.
Front doors open at 7:30 a.m.
Homeroom doors open by 7:40 a.m.
Lunch/Recess: 11:20 a.m -12:10 p.m.
