Farm safety day will be on Thursday, April 27th. A permission slip will be going out this week. Later expect to see a few release forms that will go home and need to be signed before we go on our field trip.
We will be learning about Landmarks and symbols in the United States. In the past 3rd grade has researched and created projects according to the landmark your child chooses. I have discussed the project with the students and will probably choose Wednesday. I will send home particulars on the project and it will be due on May 2nd. I want to give you and your child enough time so the note will go home sometime this week. After the note is sent home please do not hesitate to ask questions. This is a home project and I have found that the project itself turns out to be a family event which is great!! Please make sure your child has involvement it is not meant to be Mom and Dads project. The research must be written in your child's best handwriting. Thank you again.
