Mrs. Barttelbort

Hello, and welcome to the third grade at Holy Childhood School!  It is an honor to have your child as a member of my class this year.  I am a graduate of McKendree University.  Prior to Holy Childhood, I taught for St. Louis Public Schools for 10 years.  My husband, daughter, and myself live on a nearby farm.   Our daughter is also a student here at HCS, so I enjoy attending Apache sporting events.

Monday,  November 19:  Spelling test; Thanksgiving Feast for grades K-4 from 1:00-2:00 (3rd grade is responsible for vegetables and dip items)

Tuesday, November 20: Special Person’s Day    Please meet your child at 8:45 for a light snack and fun activities in the gym and cafeteria.  We will have an all-school mass at 10:00, followed by a short musical presentation.  Dismissal will be from church at 11:30 with your child’s special person.
