Buddies and school/community service Our third grade buddies in Mrs. Leake’s class meet approximately every other week. On our “off” week, we decide on upcoming buddy projects/activities to do with our buddies. Past activities include reading books, creating prayer books, skits, helping our buddies write letters to the military, and making cards for hospital patients. Mass and Reconciliation You will be supervised by your homeroom teacher during mass. We will plan for 3 masses this semester. To prepare ourselves for our masses, we analyze and discuss the mass and write petitions. We receive the sacrament of reconciliation on the Friday after our planned mass.
