3rd Grade News: 4/1

Hello Families!

Lots of updates in this week’s newsletter! Congratulations to our ROAR students from this past Friday:
– Bell- Liam
– Bray- Elliott
– Zimmerman- Preston

Next Week:

ELA: Immigration Unit continues, with focus on a compare and contrast essay
Math: Yearly Review in preparation for TN Ready
Science: Severe weather, with a focus on hurricanes

***TNReady is just under three weeks away! To help encourage the students through the long tests, we have asked parents in the past to email encouragement. This encouragement can be in the form of a picture of a pet, or the family, with a caption or just an encouraging message. You can begin emailing these to your child’s third grade teacher at your earliest convenience. Each day, we will share a few. No pressure or stress, just a fun thing for the kids if you have time. For example: You may take a picture of your dog, Teddy, with a caption that says: “Teddy thinks you are going to do totally great on the TNReady!” We’ve had messages from family members abroad as well as close by. It is a fun way to relieve the stress before testing! And, try to keep it a secret! The best are the surprise ones! 🙂

Please address your message to the entire class, not just an individual student–we’re all in this together! 🙂

Upcoming Dates:
– Friday, April 8th: Grandparent’s Day from 1-2 pm for third graders
– Thursday and Friday, April 14th and 15th: NO SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS
– Weeks of April 18th and 25th: TN Ready Testing
