welcome to Third Grade

Dear Parents,

Friday, April 6th at 9:15 is our school Mass. Fourth Grade will be hosting this Mass. All are welcomed!

The Third Graders are completing many activities to help us grow in holiness during this season of Lent. Everyday we complete an activity in our Lenten booklet, "Jesus, Teaches Us About Lent." We also share and discuss our work as a class. We continue to practice our prayers The Apostles Creed, Our Father, Hail Mary, and Act of Contrition. At Program Night in October, parents received a book called, "Prayers and Playfulness." We have been incorporating these daily religious activities into our Religion Curriculum. These activities help us strengthen our faith with God.

During the Lenten Season we are growing closer to Jesus by doing kind acts for others. We have been doing the 30 Days of Kindness Challenge- Regan's Acts of Kindness. Ask your child about this project. Also the Third Graders have been bringing in coins as we collect money for a non-profit organization called, "Blessings in a Backpack." This organization provides food on the weekends for elementary students across the country who may go hungry.

No school Thursday, March 29th- Monday, April 2nd. We will be observing Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, Easter, and Easter Monday. School will resume Tuesday, April 3rd.

Hope to see you all at the Holy Cross School Auction on Saturday, May 19th. The Third Graders have worked on a project that they are donating to the auction for bidding.

Blessings to All,

Mrs. DiMento
