Hello 3rd Grade Families!

I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday weekend among family and friends. There will be much happening in the following three weeks. Below are some highlights.

-The St. Vincent de Paul food drive is taking place now. Students took home bags on Monday and are encouraged to fill them up with non-perishables. All will go to feed local hungry families this holiday season.

-Teddy Bear Day is Monday, December 5th. Remember to pick up a new teddy bear to give to a child this Christmas. All will go to the Adopt-a-Family program here in Los Angeles.

This week in class…
