Mrs. Hallum's 3rd Grade Class 2015
August brought the beginning of the third graders’ year, which included meeting new students as well as new instructors, Ms. Hallum, the teacher and Mrs. Abila, the teacher assistant. It wasn’t long before we were all settled into new routines of yearly testing, helping with morning announcements of prayers, pledges, and giving lunch menus, and the thought for the day. Student council members were chosen. They were Jack Ramsey, Madison Mirelez, and Gregory Parker. Danae Lopez later took Gregory’s place when he was no longer in our class. We attended mass, helping the three, four, and five year olds, and attended adoration. After a great deal of studying and hard work, we were excited about our Thanksgiving vacation. Then, we went shopping at the Penguin Patch for Christmas gifts which was so much fun. The Spelling Bee competition came along, and we worked very hard on it. To our delight, Madison Mirelez, won second place right behind a fifth grader. We had a great Christmas party, and a wonderful Christmas vacation. In January we made class projects for the auction at the Potluck Dinner, and worked on PSIA after school. Sophia Hall (in Spelling) and Madison Mirelez (in Spelling and Ready Writing) both made it to the State PSIA competition in Fort Worth. We welcomed spring break and Easter and came back to finish our year. As well as continuing the hard work and learning a great deal, we included a family dance night and piano and recitals. Amy Ramsey had an art exhibit of her students’ art work. Our field trip at the end of the year to the Panhandle Plains museum was so much fun and very educational. We had a wonderful morning there.
Mrs. Abila and I were extremely impressed with our class and the progress they made over the year. We are very proud of them. We will miss them so very much this next year when they are fourth graders.
Learning With MA
Mrs. Brandy Radney & Mrs. Delia Cruz
Our school year has been full of wonder! The students are very engaged in all of the learning that is taking place within our classroom. We have learned about binomials (-) and trinomials (a+bx+c), learning the scientific method, phonemic awareness and reading, writing and journaling, and learning about the Earth and all the continents have to offer, and most importantly, celebrating the uniqueness that God has created us to be within our family, school, and community. It has been a pleasure to watch each child grow to their fullest developmental potential and watching them learn the value of one’s self.
