Welcome to Advent, the second week for us here at school! Compassion's rep John Voort came to visit. The students are already bringing in money for this worthwhile organization. Students are encouraged to work for these funds, not just to ask Mom and Dad for money.

The second giving area is the local foood bank. There is always a deep need for food at this time of year. Students are welcome to bring non-perishable goods to school anytime in the next few weeks.

Dear Parents,

Journeying with God, is our theme.  Each day is a gift from God, full of possibilities.  Each day is an adventure.  We will journey together, learning more about God and more about His world.  Grade Three offers unique experiences. 

In Grade Three we reinforce already learned concepts and skills, and build on them to further develop those abilities God has given.  We learn to use varying  resources, find strategies to organize, and learn to become independent learners. 

Mrs. Postman teaches all Science, Mrs. Middel teaches Music,  Mr. Lieuwen teaches the computer class, and Mrs. Vanden Heuvel  will teach Health,  P.E. and support Language learning.  Questions and comments can be e-mailed to us.  Newsletters may be sent home or posted on the Grade Three Page of the ICES school website.  Other important information:

  1. Agenda Planner – These help each student stay organized, and parents in contact with the teacher.  Please keep these stored in the plastic bag and carry back and forth to school each day.
  2. Bible Memory – Each Wednesday a Bible verse is printed in the Bible Home Book. Store this in your Agenda, having it with you at home and school to study. The following Wednesday it will be printed out by memory. 
  3. Spelling – A list of words will be printed in the agenda each Monday, worked on during the week, at home and at school, and tested on each Friday.
  4. Library is on Thursday afternoon.
  5. Physical Education, or Gym class will be Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.   Students are required to have a pair of inside shoes.
  6. Food – Students are asked to bring a healthy morning snack.  No sweets, chips or chocolate please. 
  7. Parent Volunteers and/or Fieldtrips.  We will need you and will appreciate your willingness to help. More information will come in the form of sign-up sheets.

We share the children’s excitement and anticipation and as your child begins this new venture we ask for your prayers for them and us.Please contact us if you have questions.  Thank You!
