Hi, parents!
Hard to believe it is almost holiday break! Reminder that students will report for a half day on Friday, Dec. 15th. Third grade holiday parties will take place on that Friday from 10:00-11:00 A.M. Dismissal is at 11:30 AM. If your child is going to be absent at all next week, please let your child’s teacher know.
Our third grade performance is this Friday, December 8th at 8:30 AM in the café. Please have your child wear khaki bottoms (pants or skirt) with his or her field trip shirt.
On Monday, December 11th Mrs. Ramsey will be working on robotics with all third graders. She will have each class for thirty minutes. Ms. Stuart will also be teaching a lesson on European holidays on Tuesday, December 12th. We think these will be fun, engaging lessons for the kids!
In addition to finishing up the second nine-weeks, teachers will also be testing each child’s reading level and students, per Metro, will be taking mid-year performance tasks in ELA and math.
It will be a fun, yet busy, week!

Hi, parents! Cannot believe we are approaching our last week of the first quarter. Time is flying! Here is what we have going on.

  • There will be no school on Friday, October 6. This is a teacher planning day.

  • All yellow field trip permission slips (bottom half of the yellow sheet) should be turned in by Monday. Your child will not be able to attend our first field trip if we don’t have written permission.

We will leave the school at 9:30 AM and return around 1:00 PM. Please have your child wear his or her field trip shirt and comfortable hiking shoes. Layered clothing is recommended because we will be hiking in the woods and it can sometimes get chilly. Also, please have your child bring a lunch that is 100% disposable (no glass/plastic containers or metal utensils, please). We are looking forward to our first field trip!

Here is what else we are up to!
