Third Grade Weekly Update


Our Third Grade Mass is this Sunday, February 19th, at 10:30am.  Students should wear their Mass uniforms. Students who attend will receive extra credit in Religion for their participation.  If your child is sent home with a reading or petition, please help them practice so that they will be prepared to read fluently and clearly.

Final drafts of the Native American Report are due on Tuesday, February 21st.  You can find a copy of the directions here: Native American Report Directions 2017

A letter was sent home last week about Khan Academy.  Students can log in at home to practice their math skills or challenge themselves with more rigorous concepts.  Since we are approaching our Chapter 4 Math Test, I recommend spending some extra practice on Multiplication this week.  Students can log in here: Khan Academy Login

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  Thank you for your continued support!
