    Happy New Year Good Morning and Happy New Year!


    I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday break! I just wanted to share a few announcements as we start the second half of our year!


    1) All homework for the month of January has been posted on my webpage. If your child loses their sheet given in class, please allow them to look online to get the questions for that night. I also entered the dates of each week of the homework at the top of the page so there is no confusion. Make sure you are practicing with your child at home!


    2) Report Cards go home on Thursday, January 10th, 2019.


    3) In math, we are beginning to learn about fractions. I will be assigning lessons in i-Ready to help students grasp the concept of fractions. A great resource to use at home with your child is https://www.mathgames.com/fractions. You can select 3rd grade and work through the activites at home to help your child better identify fractions along with getting i-Ready time at home. 


    4) I would like all students to be getting i-ready time in every week! I am monitoring online activity while students are in and I would like every child to get at least 55 minutes in i-Ready along with passing at least 2 lessons every week. Students have opportunities to get this done in class every week, however if for some reason they do not, please allow them to finish their i-Ready for the week at home!!


    Thank you and let's make this a fantastic second half of the school year!

    Good Morning!

    I am not assigning math homework this week. However, students are still expected to study for their multiplication fact quiz on Friday. They are to study their 6 facts and 7 facts nightly so that they can master the facts. 

    Progress reports go home on Thursday this week. 

    On Thursday, we are having a Thanksgiving lunch for parents and students to attend. 3rd grade lunchtime is from 11-11:30. 

    Picture Retakes are also this week on Thursday. 

    If you have a computer or tablet at home, please allow your child to spend some time on i-Ready reading and math for 20 minutes or so. i-Ready will help your child grow in both of these areas!

    After Friday is our Thanksgiving break! we will not return to school until November 26th.


    Have a great week!!

    Hello All!

    This Friday, there will be a multiplication fact quiz on 2's and 5's. It was supposed to be last week, but it was postponed to this week due to several events going on.

    Because this week is Red Ribbon Week, each day there will be something for the kids to wear to remember to be drug free! 

    Red Ribbon Week Schedule

    Monday: Stomp out drugs and sock it to them! (Wear red shoes and socks)

    Tuesday: Put a cap on drugs! (Wear your favorite hat)

    Wednesday: Treat yourself and say no to drugs! (Dress up in your favorite Halloween costume... nothing scary please)

    Thursday: Effects of drugs walkthrough (Classes will walk through science lab to see the effects of drugs)

    Friday: Team up against drugs! (Wear your favorite team jersey)


    Have a wonderful week!

    Good Morning!

    This week, students will begin taking Multiplication Fluency Quizzes on Friday so that they can master the multiplication facts. We are starting with numbers times 0 and times 1. Please work with your child for 10 minutes each night to study these multiplication facts to that they can succeed. 

    Please be reminded that Wednesday October 17th and Thursday October 18th are Early Release Days. Those afternoons are set aside for parent conferences, so if you have not met with the third grade teachers about your child's progress, that would be a good time to set an appointment with us. 

    Report Cards will go home on Thursday.

    Next Thursday, October 25th is Picture Day. Friday October 26th is the Fall Festival. 

    I hope you all have a wonderful week!
