December is sure to be a busy month at Saint Bridget School. In third grade we will be practicing and performing our Christmas Pageant, completing Christmas story stocking book reports, learning about Christmas around the world, and taking part in advent prayer services with our eighth grade buddies. As we await the birth of our Lord, Jesus, may we remember to prepare our hearts and minds for Christmas.
In the Classroom:
- Multiplication game project: Students are creating their own game to practice their multiplication facts.
- 3rd graders have started learning about and preparing for their First Reconciliation.
- Our class has started a Virtue Bulletin board where students give shout-outs to peers for showing the virtue to those around them.
- Students love to participate in math centers!
