Science- Continuing on Newton’s Laws of Motion.

Social Studies- Mexican food!!! We’re making Flan on Monday! Bring in an apron if you have one! We are also learning about traditional Mexican clothing! Ask your child what a baja jacket is or what are heuerachas!

ELA- We are beginning our first “Book Study” this week! The book that we all will be reading is Flat Stanley. Your child will be given a copy that they will have to return at the end.

For the next week or so, we will be using the book to work on vocabulary, summarizing, character traits, cause and effect, etc… as well as reading fluency. This should be fun for all of us!

Other News and Notes

Halloween Parade – Monday, 10/31 – Returning families please note that we have a change
to traditional routine! The children will be parading in their costumes, from the school
building, through the St. Jude Senior Center Community room and back to their classrooms
starting at 12:15PM. All students will have a dress down day that day and will bring their
costumes to school in their backpacks. Costumes should be ones that can be slipped on over
their regular clothes. Parents are welcome to come into the building to help their child put on
their costume, if needed. K-5 classes will hold their class Halloween parties after the parade and parents are welcome to join us for the festivities. Family members that wish to watch the Halloween parade may stand along the front of the school building, on either side of Dana Avenue. Get your cameras ready!

Third grade will be having a pizza party after the parade. If anyone would like to send in any peanut friendly “spooky” snack to go with the pizza or would like to join us, please email me! Mr. G. will provide the pizza,  juice and freeze pops!

Day of the Dead Party!

On Wednesday, November 2, Third grade will be hosting a Day of the Dead Party to culminate our Unit on Mexico. A flyer with all the details will be out this week! Please keep a lookout for it!


Please continue to check our website each week! (now that I have learned how to use it!) 🙂
