Why a Catholic Education Matters
Catholic Education is crucial to the development and catechesis of our young people today. It provides an environment which emphasizes high academic standards with a strong emphasis on developing the whole child. Catholic Education recognizes the importance of supporting the academic, social and spiritual needs of all of our students.
I choose to work at St. Joseph Regional School because I enjoy the close family atmosphere, the strong parental support and the opportunity to share my faith in the context of my daily work as a teacher.

Third Grade News
Welcome! I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful summer we are having. I look forward to sharing
with you an exciting year of learning in third grade. Our routines may have to be adjusted, but our goals
for the year will remain the same. We will grow in kindness, friendship and love and we will develop the
knowledge and skills required in the third grade curriculum.
The flexible seating we have used in the past will need to be adjusted in accordance with CDC guidelines.
Children will have their own individual workspace, textbooks, chromebooks and supplies. This will be
done to maintain social distancing. We will take time during the day to sanitize workspaces and
students will wear masks when they are unable to socially distance. Every new year starts with the
establishment of classroom rules and routines. This will be a year when this will be more important
than ever before.
We will cover all subjects in the NYS curriculum as well as Religion. The Religion curriculum for third
grade concentrates on preparation for the sacrament of Holy Eucharist. This will culminate in the
children receiving their First Communion in the spring. As part of our STREAM academy we will be
participating in “Kitchen Chemistry.” This will bring us into the kitchen to learn about things such as,
chemical and physical change and much more. We will also complete several engineering design briefs
as part of STREAM.
We will be using Google Classroom and several other online platforms this year. My goal will be to have
students that are able to work independently using these tools, so we will be able to adapt easily should
we face a mandated return to distance learning at any point in the school year.
As you can see, we have a busy year ahead. I will have a class full of eager and excited learners. I’m
looking forward to a great year. See you soon!
