Third Grade Weekly Update

I hope everyone has enjoyed the first two weeks of school!  We have really started picking up the pace, and we are off to a great year!

This month, third and eighth grades are responsible for helping with our school Mass on Wednesdays.  Each week, I will be choosing 2 third graders to present the gifts.  I hope to see some of you there!
