We had a wonderful time celebrating Catholic Schools Week. We started our week with a pep rally and some gym games. We were loud enough that we won the spirit stick. Woohoo! Go third grade! We spend some time thanking volunteers in our community and participated in Jump rope for Heart to help the American Heart Association. Mr. Juchno challenged us to build an animal out of Legos, and we all created some awesome animals. Our parents were able to visit us in the classrooms and have lunch with us to end the week. What an awesome week we had.
Today, we were able to spend some time with our grandparents and people who were special to us. We had a wonderful day learning about our grandparents, having a prayer service, and eating lunch. We love our grandparents!
Today, we did an experiment called gas trap. We each got warm water in our cup, and then we placed a lid on our cup. We were able to see condensation form on the inside of our cups.
Today, we were blessed to have firefighters from Hanover Area Fire Company come and talk to us about fire safety. We learned that we all could be heroes by helping to prevent a fire. We were taught what to do in the case of a fire in our house, taught stop, drop, and roll, and asked to help set up a meeting place at home in the case of a fire.
We have been learning that God has called us each by name and that our names are special to each of us. We made acrostic poems from our names with some of the ways we are special.

Dear Parent/Guardian of Upcoming Third Grader,
Below is a list of items that I am requiring your child to have in order to be a successful third grader. If these items could be brought on the first day of school, it would be greatly appreciated. If you should have any trouble finding these items or any questions regarding the list, please contact me at email@example.com.
Donations of Ziploc bags and Band-Aids would be greatly appreciated.
Specialty teachers are also asking for donations of tissues, Clorox wipes, and hand sanitizer. If you are willing to donate any extras, it would be greatly appreciated.
Please note that this list is separate from the Art supply list that they will receive. Please do not over buy drawing supplies or “toy-like’ items. I wish you a safe, enjoyable summer!
JUST A REMINDER...!
The following supplies are needed for your child's art bag:
1. An art shirt-one that is large enough to fit over the student's clothes (e.g. old t-shirt of sibling or parent)
2. 4 No. 2 pencils
3. 1 small eraser
4. A box of crayons 16 or 24 count
5. A box of colored pencils
6. A box of markers
7. 4 glue sticks-we use these up quickly
Thank you so much for supporting your child's art education.
Today we were introduced to different instruments that we can play next year in elementary band. Mrs. Yealy and some student helpers showed us what each instrument sounded like and played us a sample song. We even got to try out these instruments on our own.
Today, we participated in our Race for Education. Thank you to all of our sponsors who help to support Saint Joseph School.
