Lent: A Time for Sacrifice

Students have openly shared ideas on something they would sacrifice over this Lenten season. Aside from giving up sweets or candy students shared a handful of ideas that would be more challenging. Many shared they would give up screen time by using less technology- iPads, games on a phone, and use of a tablet. Others shared giving up video games or a favorite toy. Aside from giving up something tangible we discussed things to do in place of a favored activity such as offering to help in the kitchen, unload the dishwasher, clean their room, put away laundry, or picking up and doing an extra chore that wasn't theirs to do. Practicing the virtue given in daily Lenten reflections is also something they are modeling in their actions to others. Something added to our everyday classroom prayers are daily intentions and everyone has a chance to share what is on their heart.

Fall Party Fun!

Saint Dress Up

Science Fun!

Students are learning about weak and strong forces in science class. One day was spent on getting the play out of their system as they pushed a toy truck with different amounts of force and another day was spent on the lab write up. Students got to use a stop watch and see how many seconds it took for their truck to cross the finish line over a set distance.

Stewardship

Third graders need to have 3 service hours every nine weeks! The purpose of stewardship is to provide students with an opportunity to make a difference in their church and surrounding communities. Please assist your child in sharing in this act of love.
