3B NEWSLETTER

Dear 3B Families,

Reminders:

Native American Project: This week we will discuss breaking up the visual aid in small chunks and not waiting until the last minute. This would be a good time to begin brainstorming ideas for the visual and collecting materials.

Classroom Help: I am looking for some help in the classroom with the Native American project. It is nice to have another adult(s) in the room to help students with researching and editing. Here are some dates and times that we will be working on the project:

Monday, January 28th from 11:25-12:20 Tuesday, January 29th from 8:35-9:20 Tuesday, February 5th from 8:35-9:20 Thursday, February 7th from 11:15-11:40 Monday, February 11th from 11:25-12:20 Tuesday, February 12th from 8:35-9:20

Please let me know if you are able to help.

Service Opportunity: During Catholic Schools Week for our service day (Tuesday, Jan. 29) we are completing a service project with our 7th grade buddies. Together we will make lunches for the homeless men at St. Martin de Porres. We are collecting items needed to make these lunches and will put them together at school and deliver them to the shelter. To do this, we need families to purchase one item on our good list and bring it to school ON Monday, January 28. Please visit the Sign Up Genius link and sign up for an item to assist with this:
