Weekly Newsletter – March 20

Happy First Day of Spring! I have to say I am ready for warm weather and sunshine. Praying that it comes quickly! Here are a few things to know for this week.


What We Are Learning:

English: This week we are adding prepositions to our list of parts of speech. We will start these today and revisit them after testing week as well.

Bible: We are still going through Joseph 🙂

Reading: This week we are talking about facts and opinions in a story. We are reviewing contractions! We are continuing to work on alphabet books. Any book you borrowed from the public library will be coming home in the next day or so.

Math: We took a pop quiz over the first 5 sections of our measurement chapter. Tomorrow we will be jumping into the metric system.

Social Studies: We are taking a quiz over the NE, SE, MW, and SW this week. We will start learning about the W this week, and we will talk about longitude and latitude.

Spelling: We do have a test on Friday. We are focusing on different suffixes this week.


Bible Verse and Spelling Words:

This Week’s Verse: 2 Timothy 3:16 – All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.

Next Week: 1 Timothy 4:12 – Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.

Spelling Words: rocky, foolish, rainy, childhood, selfish, treatment, movement, neighborhood, childish, parenthood, crunchy, bumpy, payment, sleepy, shipment, assignment, basement, stylish, environment, guilty. Bonus: magnificent.


Odds and Ends:

Re-Enrollment Packets: Re-enrollment for current WCS families is due this Friday. Enrollment opens to the general public after that. We hope to see all of you next year!

Testing Week: Next week is testing week. If you have doctors appointments scheduled for your student please try to reschedule them if you can. It is best for everyone if everyone is here all week. I am praying that we have some beautiful weather next week that way we can get outside in between tests! Please let me know if you have any questions. We will be doing snack like normal.

Sundae Party: Next Friday (3/31) is our Multiplication Sundae Party, and we are going to make a day of it! Friday will be pajama day if 3rd grade, and we will celebrate the end of testing week with a movie and ice cream! What a way to end the week 🙂 We are still in need of some supplies for the ice cream party. You can click here to sign up!

Report Cards: These will be going home this Friday. Please be patient with me as I enter grades this week.


I think that is it! Have a wonderful Monday!
