Dear Third Grade Parents,

We have been hard at work after Hurricane Irma. Please continue to have your child read aloud for 15 minutes, and to practice math facts for 10 minutes daily. We will begin multiplication facts in the near future.

Thank you for your glue donations. With several parents’ help, I was able to  locate enough of the extra small bottles of glue so each of the children may keep one in their pencil box. I will refill the bottles with the extra glue as needed.

Please be sure you have signed up for the Remind app so you may get more frequent classroom updates.

Students will be required to read and take 3 Accelerated Reader (AR) Tests within his/her assigned reading level range, striving for 80% accuracy, each Quarter. Reading levels will be adjusted throughout the year. New levels can be found in the back of your child’s Planner.

Your child’s Mathletics User Name and Password is located in the back of the Planner. If you haven’t already done so, please download the free Mathletics App on your mobile device. Mathletics can also be accessed using us.mathletics.com/sign-in.

  1. PE Schedule:  Monday afternoon and Thursday morning.   To make it easier for your child, having their change of clothes in a separate, smaller gym bag is suggested.
