Dear 3rd grade families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break!

AR (Accelerated Reading)-

Students are required to read and take a minimum of 3 accelerated reader tests per quarter within his/ her reading level, striving for 80% accuracy. Your student’s reading level is listed at the back of their planner. Please encourage your child to read 25 minutes daily!


PE will be on Mondays and Thursdays. Please send your child to school on those days in their PE Uniform with sneakers. No jewelry except small post- style earrings on PE days!

Opportunity (Help) Sessions for 3rd graders are held on Tuesdays afternoons from 2:50-3:30 for students needing extra help with Math or Reading. Please email me or send a note in the planner if you’d like your child to attend.

Students must bring a water bottle (no larger than 2 ½ inch diameter) to school to be refilled daily.

We will be continuing to keep the classroom sanitized and clean our hands frequently throughout the day to help keep the germs away. Please keep your child home if he/ she is sick with a fever!

Each student will be allowed to utilize an iPad in class as a learning tool in the classroom throughout the year. Students will be expected to comply with the school wide rules and expectations for technology use.
