3rd Grade

Welcome to 3rd Grade with Mrs. Waller

Happy Thanksgiving students and parents! This is going to be a quick but fun month.  We will be reading some fun stories in class with our reading program.

Halloween was so much fun and thank you to Mrs. Scott for donating a pumpkins for us to explore and have some fun with and Mrs. Ojeka and Mrs. Grella for helping us cut them open.

This month is our school Mass and the Thanksgiving Feast.  The date of the school Mass is  Wednesday, November 22nd . (We will be helping a little)

There is a bake sale on Nov. 21st  and 3rd grade are being asked to bring in a treat to be sold at the bake sale.

The weather is getting cooler.  We will be outside at recess weather permitting.  Please send in a jacket or sweatshirt for your son or daughter to wear on chilly days. Please make sure to label all jackets and sweatshirts with your son or daughters name.



We will have snack everyday in class.  Please send in a healthy peanut/tree but free snack and extra drink for your son or daughter to enjoy.  .
