Welcome May...Spring Has Sprung! 

This has been a very special time for third graders, as we receive the sacrament of Holy Eucharist.  We will continue our faith journey in May, celebrating Ascension Thursday on May 10th at the 9 AM Mass.  Third grade will lead the school in our May Crowning Prayer Service on Monday, May 14th at 9 AM in the church.  Please join us to pray together!  

Later in the month, we will enjoy some very fun happenings...including Kid-Biz and the Rock Around the Block outdoor concert and food trucks!  More information will follow.

Our Lady, Queen of Heaven!  


A Special Request  

PLEASE spend 5 minutes EVERYDAY practicing multiplication facts, including weekends.  If your child is able to spend a little more time practicing, that would be terrific!  However, a minimum of 5 minutes of day practice is truly required to assist your child's memorization process.  Truly, this is a skill that will be used for the rest of their years at school and it is vitally important for students to have them memorized.  Just as quickly as the answer for 2 + 3 is...students should likewise be able to just as quickly answer all multiplication facts from 1 to 12. (For example, 1 x 12, 2 x, 12...all the way up to 12 x 12).  Thank you for helping your child find success!
