We had an amazing week in 3A! We were able to go to church on Wednesday. The students participated in the Mass and received the Body of Christ. They enjoyed being able to celebrate the Mass in the church! This week we earned our marble party and celebrated it with ice cream! The students enjoyed their sweet treat today at the end of the day.
On Tuesday the report cards were sent home. If you didn’t get it please let me know. We finished up the subject and predicate unit in English and will be moving on the capitalization unit next. We have been working on those multiplication facts of 0,1,2,5, 9, and 10’s. Next week we will test over the 9’s on Friday.
Today in the take home folder for the youngest and old is a form the office would like for you to fill in and return next week. It is about the school year next year and if you plan on returning to SPSL. Please look for it in the folder. There are also book orders in the take home folder. I hope everyone has a nice weekend. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

3A Weekly Update
January 8, 2021
Happy New Year and Happy Friday! We made it through the week of remote learning and all the students were rock stars along with their parents! Thank you so much for all your support and patience during this week of remote learning. I am so thankful for all of you. I hope that this week went smoothly and your child was able to work independently most of the time. I know many of you were working from home and so that was the goal I was trying to set when planning the work. If your child still needs help on any of the work that was assigned I have the 1:00-1:30 office hour this afternoon instead of a live lesson that they can log on to Google Meets to ask me questions.
Either today or this weekend please have your child put their binder with all work completed, social studies book, and the reading book in their backpack. They also can bring back their marker boards if they took them home over break and their headphones. Mrs Preston will need the students to use the headphones next week when they do some coding for digital literacy class. If your child didn’t bring headphones at the beginning of the year to school and you have some now she would appreciate it if you sent them to school. If you have a brown paper bag at home and it is possible to get the reading book cover this weekend that would be great. If you don’t have one or don’t have time your child can try to get it done over the next week or two. I know some of the students were able to take their old cover and put it on the new book so it might already be done.
I miss teaching the 3A students in person and can’t wait to see all their smiling faces on Monday in our room. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I hope everyone has a nice weekend.
