Dear 3rd Grade Families,

Thank you for sending in the tissues, red pens, and erasers.

Also thank you to those families who continuously send in emergency snacks for those students who forget a snack. Remember your student needs to have a snack every day (even on hot lunch days).

Third quarter report cards were posted yesterday. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding your student’s progress.

The nonfiction book report is due this Tuesday. They must use complete sentences, answer all questions completely, and use colored pencils or crayons for their illustration. Aim for all 4s based on the attached rubric. Remember 11 points will be deducted each day it is turned in late.

The results of your student’s Reading and Math STAR tests (taken this past week) are coming home in your student’s Friday Folder. No need to sign and return these forms. Please keep at home for your review.

This next Thursday afternoon 3rd grade will lead the school’s Stations of the Cross at 2:15pm. Talk with your student and ask them if they volunteered to lead a part and please try to join us in the church that afternoon. 😊
