Dear Third  Grade Families,

Bravo to our third grade musical stars! They did a fantastic job with their performances.

What We Have Been Learning
Ask Your Child About

Talking with your child is the best way to support classroom learning. The following questions can help you get started.

  • How did being up on stage make you feel and why?   
  • How have you grown and changed this trimester? What are you most proud of?
  • What are you most excited to share with people tomorrow at the celebration and why? 
  • What was your first experience with the Seniors like?

  • Thank you for supporting your child with reading daily and signing their planner!

  • Start playing games or use apps to practice multiplications facts through the 5's.

Tomorrow: Parent Education Workshop
Distraction, Multi-Tasking and Time Management, Friday, March 17th, 8:30 - 9:30 a.m., Think Tank. Research shows that media multitasking while studying and learning can have a negative impact on our children's academic performance. Speaker Laurie Schoeffler, Student Support Coordinator, will provide tools to work around media disruption.
