All Saints’ Day is coming up on November 1st.  We will be celebrating All Saints’ Day as a school on Thursday, November 1st.  We celebrate the day by having the students choose a saint, write a short report about the saint, and then come to school dressed like the saint.  During the day, there will be all sorts of ‘saintly’ activities the students will be able to participate in.

The third grade students will be expected to write a short report on their saint including the following information:

 
  • Birth Date and Date of Death

  • Feast Day

  • What the saint is patron of

  • What the saint is known for

  • At least one other interesting fact about the saint

 

The report should be neatly written in a paragraph on lined paper or typed.  At school, students will share their report with the other third grade students.  

 

Students are welcome to choose their patron saint or some other lesser known saint.  This project will primarily be done at home. However, we do have some resources in the classroom that we will share with the students.  At home you may consider visiting www.catholic.org,or http://www.loyolapress.com/saints-stories-for-kids.htm  for information about the saints.  The reports will be due Thursday, October 25.

Important Information for the First Day of School:

The students will each have an Assignment Notebook that they will bring home every day. In it, it will have all the subject areas and what we completed for that day. You will notice all homework is written in red pen. *Please sign the Assignment Notebook each day. I will look for this in the morning and also put my signature there as well. The Assignment Notebook is a great place to write a note to me if you need to. Also, from time to time there will be important papers that are stapled into the Assignment Notebook. Today, there will be a paper that tells about the students day. I also put a copy of this email in their Assignment Notebook as well.

The students will also have a Take-Home Folder that will be brought home each day. Please check the folder each day and return to school. It will have two pockets one that says "Return to School" and one that says "Stay at Home." Any papers in the "Return to School" needs to be brought back to school. Any papers in the "Stay at Home" needs to be taken out and kept at home.

A few parents have asked about snack. We will have snack each day. Each child is responsible for bringing their own snack. They will also get the choice to have milk during this time too. Make sure you have signed up for milk with the office if you would like your child to have milk during snack. Also, students are allowed to keep water bottles at their desk if the
