Dear Third Grade Parents and Students,



Native American Projects: All projects are due tomorrow, you may bring them in anytime after 8:00am. Presentations will be tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday.

Please arrange for pick up of the project either before school or after school on that date.

No School on Friday: There will be no school on Friday because of an Archdiocese in-service day.

Social Studies Test: The North Central States test will be on Monday, March 13th. A study guide was sent home last week. Students will be tested on the states and abbreviations. Another great way to study is by using this onine game:

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 10 – No School due to Archdiocesan Inservice Day

– March 17 – Men’s gloves

– 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
