Progress Reports went home Friday. Remember these are not the final Report Card. The comments made on your child's progress report are to help you and your child to better understand what they can do to improve. It is only the first quarter so we are all learning and will improve as time goes on. The 3rd grade is a transition year for many and it takes a while to settle in. The students are doing a great job taking on all the work that is given to them. As we have been settling into class the students are getting comfortable. Please remind them to do their talking outside of class on the playground or during designated times. Progress reports are due Wednesday, September 18th. Thank you

Welcome to the second week of school. Hopefully all of you were able to read your child's Friday letter. They were excited to write letters home. It is not necessary to write a lengthy letter back just a friendly note telling your child you are listening. Return journals on Monday. I will be checking for a quick response. Those students who have a response will receive a prize this week.
We are well on our way through the school year and with that some students have already noticed the change from 2nd to 3rd grade. They will be responsible for a lot of writing and learning plenty of study skills to prepare them for the future. If they are unable to complete assignments in class they will be sent home as homework.
This weeks agenda:
I will be sending home a note regarding your child's log in information for think central and math in focus. The same user name and password is used for both. Your child may go onto the website to read and listen to the story of the week along with other tasks they may find interesting.
