The Bast Weekly Blast

Week of September 7, 2015

3rd Grade Rocks!!

We have had a fantastic week in third grade. Students will be bringing home their red, Warrior folder each night. In the pocket on the back cover, you will find their behavior chart and homework calendar. Students should be writing down their homework each day and any assignments they need to finish should be in the "Return to School" pocket inside the folder.

Students will bring home their Math Workbooks any time they have Math homework. We use these workbooks every day, so please make sure they are bringing them back each day.

Please feel free to call or email me with any questions or concerns you may have. I look foward to teaming with you to help your child have an amazing year in 3rd grade.

Attitude of the Month: Integrity

Integrity is having a sense of fairness and honesty with respect to yourself and others. It is doing what is right, even when no one is looking.

Ms. Christy Bast

This is my fifth year teaching; my first year in Third Grade. I live in O'fallon, and I have a six-year old Boxer named Sophie. I love to read, write, and draw. I also like to go hiking, take Sophie to the dog park or on a walk, and I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.

Sophie and I are lucky to share our lives with Anabelle (8), William (6), and Charlotte (4) and their dad. We like to spend our family times exploring parks, swimming, watching movies, creating art projects, and attending lots of extracurricular events. Anabelle loves Cheer and is looking forward to joining the Sign Language club this year. William is a soccer star in the making. He is training to be a goalie!! Charlotte is our little dancer. She has some sassy little dance moves she loves to show off. All in all, we keep ourselves busy!!

I am pleased to be your child's teacher this year. Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
