Morning Mass: As a class we have the opportunity to celebrate Mass together before school during this Lenten Season. We will be going to morning Mass on Thursday, April 6th at 7:45 am.  You can stay with your child or drop them off with me to sit with our group.

BROWN BAG FRIDAYS FOR ST. MARTIN de PORRES MEN’S SHELTER:

Every year, as part of our Lenten Outreach, Holy Rosary School has provided lunches to the men at St. Martin de Porres shelter. Students are asked to bring a lunch or two and a toiletry item on designated Fridays during Lent.

These lunches can be kept cold, so perishable food is fine.

 

**Please keep the toiletry items separate from the lunches:

– March 24 – travel size toothpaste and disposable toothbrush (singles)

– March 31 – men’s socks

– April 7 – disposable razors/shaving cream (sample size)

 

For 3rd Grade we are collecting the following:

*Money for Uganda- Throughout Lent we will be collecting money for Uganda. We encourage you to find ways for your child to earn   this money through chores or good works so that they feel responsible for their donations. Every dollar helps!

*CHIEF SEATTLE CLUB: The 3rd grade is collecting gently used or new adult warm clothing to donate to Chief Seattle Club, an organization that specializes in assisting Native Americans.

*CANNED FOOD COLLECTION: As a school we will be contributing to the HRS food pantry. Each student should bring a can a food to contribute to the pantry

This week we will be:

Reading: Students read the informational text Mountains: Surviving on Everest. They search for informational text features.

Math: Students learn their 9 facts today and the test will be next Monday. This week we focus on elapsed time.
