Dear Parents,

We had a wonderful week in third grade. Today we attended mass lead by the second grade. A few of our classmates received communion with our class for the first time! Congratulations to Veronica, Karen, and Elanor.

Next Week at a Glance 

Reading: We will be reading the story of “Johnny Appleseed.” This is the legend about John Chapman.

Math: Students are wrapping up our measurement unit and moving on to geometry. All students need to continue to work on math story problems and basic math skills. Daily practice of multiplication, division, elapsed time, counting money, and fractions is important so that students can do their work quickly and accurately. We will continue to have timed test 2-3 times a week.

Reading/Writing: Last week your child selected an animal book for an at home book report. The animal book report is due Monday, May 21st. This will be an oral presentation so please have them practice reading report at home.


  • Please make sure your child has sunscreen on when we have warm days along with a LABELED water bottle for class
  •  Next Thursday, May 24th, Elanor will be principal for the day, so third grade will get free dress that day! Thank you, Mr. Nicol and Elanor!
  • Please let me know at least a day in advance if your child has an appointment during school hours, it is difficult to get him/her caught up when they are leaving during the middle of a class

Have a great weekend,

Mary Moa-Walsh
