A Note From Your Third Grade Teachers
Third Grade Connections
March 2nd, 2017
Dear Third  Grade Families,

Welcome back! We hope you all had a fabulous week with loved ones. The students have returned to school rested and ready to take on new challenges. This is good news because from wrapping up astronomy projects to dividing up literature jobs and filling out job applications, third graders are busily working. We look forward to sharing these fabulous discoveries with you during our Academic Celebration on Friday, March 17th at 9:00 a.m.

We also look forward to seeing you at the upcoming end of second-trimester conferences on  March 23rd and 24th . Please follow the link below to sign up.

Your Third  Grade Team,
Kathe Bybee and Jen Guevara
What We Have Been Learning
Musical Reminders
Costume Requirements: The third grade students are cast as the whimsical  Whos from Whoville. Your child is asked to wear a  brightly colored stripe shirt and solid color pants or  brightly striped dress and solid color leggings with  a contrasting brightly colored pair of sneakers (Converse, Vans, etc.) on the evening of the performance.

Children may choose which color to wear but  please avoid neutral colors, such as black, brown, gray, white or tan. Other costume items will be provided by the school. 
Musical Performances: Thursday, March 9th - Friday, March 10th, 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., Kohrs Family Center. Third-grade performers should arrive at the Theatre by 6:15 p.m. 

Volunteers Needed: We are currently looking for volunteers to help break down the stage after Friday night's performance. If you are available, please contact Michelle Giacotto. We would greatly appreciate it! 

Ask Your Child About

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

  • Ask students in Mrs Bybee's class about the amaryllis growing experiment.   
  • What is one fact (or more) you learned about your astronomy topic?
  • What are some ways to spread kindness around the school? 


  • 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

Upcoming Events
