Here are a few updates. Boosterthon fun run will be on Wednesday 4/26 at 8:45am in the front field. Your student will receive their shirts Wednesday AM. Please be sure they wear their PE shoes that day. If your student gets any new pledge tonight they are allowed to wear PJ tomorrow. This can be as small as $1. Also we are close to sweet treat day for the class. Donate if you can!
Dancefest will be on Friday 4/28 on the K-2 playground at 8:45am. It will last approximately 1 hour. Your child needs to wear PE shoes and a towel to sit on outside. If you are coming to watch please bring a chair to sit on.
Lastly the third grade will have Enterprise Day on May 11. Enterprise Day is a grade wide activity that pairs with our economics unit. Each student/partner group will work together to design, make and sell products to each other. The students will have the opportunity to make "money" for the next 2 weeks that they will use towards buying other products and setting up a booth to sell their product. Over the coming weeks your student will need to gather supplies and bring them into school in order to work on their product.They are allowed to work with partners after school as well. Their product can't be candy or weapons or store bought. Parents are encouraged to attend and will be given a small amount of "school money" to spend on various favorite products.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Tomorrow is our field trip to Publix. We will leave about 9:30 and return around 11:30. The students will eat lunch once we return so please make sure they have breakfast since we will be eating later than usual.
Be sure to register and donate at funrun.com. Just for registering each student get a bracelet.
If you weren't able to sign up for a conference last week and want to come in, let me know. I will find a time to meet with you.
Homework will be sent home today. They must do it all by Friday PLUS read 20 minutes and practice multiplication facts. With EOG testing coming up we have lots to practice before May.
Have a great week,
Reminder that this week is our 3rd grade music program on April 12 at 8:40 am in the gym. The second grade will perform first and it should be finished at 9:20am. I will plan to video as much as I can and post it on Seesaw for those of you that can't make it.
Also this week is a four day week. We have no school on Friday. Enjoy your 3 day weekend!!
Last week we continued our study of poetry and figurative language. We explored rebus, free verse, Haiku and shape poems.
In Math we finished up fractional parts using shapes and will start working on telling time and elasped time.
This week in Science we will continue to explore soil and it's properties. Early in the week we will get Night Crawlers and figure out how important they are to maintaining the soil.
Encourage your student to start thinking of what they can create and sell in our Enterprise day. We will start our economics unit soon and discuss all the components of a successful business.
Have a great week!
