Block Party-May 18th

Third Grade will be having a “block party” on Friday, May 18th. On this day, please have your child bring a towel/blanket to sit on. We will be serving pizza, chips, drinks and a special dessert. Your child does not need to bring a lunch on this day, as lunch will be provided, however they will still have the option to get a school lunch if needed. This will also be our grade level yearbook signing time, so if your child ordered a yearbook, they may bring it to school on Friday, May 18th ONLY. Students can also bring outdoor activities to play, if they choose. For example, ideas could be; footballs, whiffleball, kickball, jump rope, soccer ball. Please no electronics. This item needs to be able to fit in your child’s backpack. We are excited to celebrate your child’s hard work throughout our March Madness Tournament and throughout their third grade year!

CORRECT LINK!

Below is the CORRECT LINK for the Milestones…

Not only does it give everyone a look into what is expected for mastery of the Milestone, it also has excellent practice for your children. I highly suggest taking time to read this through and printing it out…if you are able.  We will begin testing Tuesday, April 10th.
