Week of October 9th


Wow, we had a busy week.  We had science lab, a counseling lesson, an in school field trip about Indians, a popsicle party from Foundation, an A/R celebration, electronics day, end of term MI (math inventory)  assessment, and RI (reading inventory) assessment.  All this plus our regular curriculum!  I think we need another break!

The new week will be a little slower and we will start our new term.  Report cards will be held until Parent/Teacher conference week.  I will also share your child’s MI and RI scores at the conference.  Your child made a new A/R goal for this term.  Encourage him/her to start reading early for the goal. The students have written their goal down in their reading journal.  Remember, Thursday is early release day.

I am so proud of our class! We are the H.E.R.O. attendance winners for the month of September. H.E.R.O. stands for H-here E-everyday R-ready to learn O-on time.  We had the highest daily attendance among all of the 3rd grade classes and won a PAJAMA day. This is the second month in a row that we have been the winner of this contest! Your student can wear school appropriate pajamas on Wednesday, October 13. If he/she would rather wear a hat or bring a furry friend, they may do that instead.Thank you, parents for sending your child to school on-time and ready to learn, every day they feel well!

Below are websites that will help with this week’s academics.  Please review these yourself before you let your child work on them.  They were appropriate when I posted them, but websites change and you need to make sure they are appropriate for your child.  Advertisements on these websites change frequently.
