Third Grade Monthly News

Dear Parents,

As we come to the end of the school year, I would like to thank you again for all your support and for the privilege of teaching your children.  It has been a wonderful learning experience for me and hopefully, for your children as well!

I would like to thank our parents that helped with our fabulous final field trips to the aquarium and the tidepools.  What fun and educational experiences those both were for us, not to mention learning the art of walking carefully on slippery rocks!

I would like to publicly thank Mara Jones for being our head room parent this year.

Also, a big thank you to our many Meet the Masters docents who helped to pass on their love of art to the students.

I hope you enjoyed our beautiful third grade mass of crowning Mary and the retreat that followed.  Thank you to Tricia Nur for coordinating the snacks for this event.

Thank you to those that helped with all the second grade activities last month as they prepared for their First Eucharist.

Finally, thank you to Yvette Rodriguez who coordinated our lovely auction project-a beautiful ceramic vase with our students “prints” all over it!

Third grade parents were very busy in May and we appreciated all of the parents who volunteered their time and talents to make this past month and the whole year so wonderful for all of us.

In closing, I wold like to wish everyone a safe and fun-filled summer.  I will be sending home and end-of-the-year letter with some information and activities to help your student continue to review and learn and be well-prepared for fourth grade.  There is also a math workbook assigned by Mrs. Smiland that needs to be completed over the summer per her instructions in an e-mail you should receive.  Lastly, check the school website for more information and Shutterfly for pictures (please post any you have taken this year for others to enjoy!)

I will be leaving right after school is out to trek cross country via car with my first stop in Nashville to see my first grandchild, little Nora Mae Elizabeth Arnold.  I will continue onto Cape Cod where I will stay with my parents for a while and finally drive back home via Michigan for a nephew’s wedding in August.  Pray for me!

Many prayers always,

Sue Arnold
