Thank you for all the prayers and patience during my recent hospitaliztions in September.
Starting October 1 we will be starting our 1st standard for the Kansas State Testing Multiplication. For the past 6 weeks we have reviewing Adding and Subtracting with 2 and 3 digit numbers, rounding numbers to the nearest tens and hundreds and telling time. It is VERY IMPORTANT that students complete their homework. Homework re-enforces what the students have learned during the day.
We are doing book studies. The students need to be able to compare and contrast themes, found out the main idea with supporting details, cause and effect, sequencing and most important comprehension. We have read "Because of Winn Dixie", "Balto" , and "Judy Moody". Starting in October we will be reading "Sarah Plain and Tall".
Parent-Teacher Conference is October 26. Please make a reservations for your conference.
See you you October
Dear Parents and Guardian,
This is a follow up letter to the discussion we had at Back to School Night. I pray that all of our families and students are invested in Holy Savior Catholic Academy and will sign their child up for at least one extracurricular activities. Students who regularly participated in after-school programs surpassed their peers in academic performance. They also exhibited notable improvements in work habits and behavior. Some of the programs we have available for third grade are:
Chess during school
Altar Servers (Catholic Students Only contact Ms. Penelton)
Choir Wednesday evening at 4:30pm (there is no charge for afterschool care that one day only )
Robotics (students must be recommended by teacher)
UBUNTU Village Saturday School
KUMON suggest several reasons students should be involved in extracurricular activities here are a few. But, I think the best reason is to form better Christian and have Christian morals.
1. Time Management and Prioritizing Extracurricular activities teach children how to manage their time and prioritize various tasks and commitments.
2. Exploring Diverse Interests The school band, drama club, or any sport may be an activity your children are interested in joining. By allowing your children the opportunity to explore diverse interests, you give them the opportunity to discover what they are passionate about. Once your children find an activity that they enjoy, succeeding in the activity could ultimately build their confidence and self-esteem.
3. Making a Contribution Extracurricular activities allow your children to make a contribution to their school or community, which is an important step in preparing them for life outside of academics.
4. Building Self-Esteem Mastering new skills can help build confidence in children. By participating in after-school activities, they can build their self-esteem in a relaxed setting as their activities provide the opportunity to be successful in something that they are passionate about.
Which one(s) would you like to sign-up for? Activities start next week. Please return by Monday.
