I would like for all students to bring a King James Version Bible by Tuesday, March 13, to leave at school.  Our goal for our final nine weeks is to learn all the books of the Bible and be able to look up scripture by book, chapter, and verse. I have a few extra Bibles that I will bring to school. It is a requirement for Third grade to have one to keep at school, so they will be able to use it from here on out anyway. Please make sure it has both the old and new testament and that it is small enough to keep in their desks.

We are working in class with this week's spelling words.  We will not have a test on Wednesday, March 14. 

New Bible verses will come home on Monday, March 12.

Students will be dismissed at noon on Friday, March 23.
