BROWNIE OPEN HOUSE FOR 3RD GRADE GIRLS!
Our 3rd Grade Brownie Troop meets 2x month: second Tuesday of the month for a classroom meeting at RBS and a local activity outside of school connected to our classroom meetings (optional). Games, crafts, badges, service and leadership skills are all part of the fun for each meeting and activity! An Open House will be held on November 14 at RBS during our first classroom meeting - if your daughter would like to attend and sample a Girl Scout meeting, please e-mail Dorothy Riggio at jdxm2002@gmail.com by November 1 so that she may reserve a space and have supplies for each child. See further details in flyer going home on Friday.   

We also collect Campbell's Soup labels and Box Tops for Education.

If you could send your child in with packs of individual tissues, that would be great. Believe it or not, we spread less germs when we don't use a community tissue box. Thanks!

Religion: - During the month of October, your child is going to be saying the rosary with us in class. I have a class set of rosary beads, however, your child is free to bring in their own pair with your permission. I do not want Grandma Mary's crystal beads if they are cherished by your family or have monetary value, in case they get lost or broken. We will also start chapter three (all about Mary), but we will take 2 or 3 weeks to complete it due to saying the rosary. The children will have notes on the rosary, and we will have a test at the end of October on it. We are also doing chapter 3
