Please visit the link below to sign up to donate part of our healthy CRCT snack. I know it seems like a lot, but remember that it's designed to feed 20 children 5 times. Also, for the mints, I need a total of 200 because I will give each child a mint as testing starts in the morning AND after their break.
Remember that permission forms and field trip money are due by this Friday, April 18th. Here is a copy of the permission form if you have misplaced it.
Math & Science Day
Math and Science Day will be this Wednesday, April 16th. Students enjoy this day, when they rotate through activity stations to review science and math concepts to prepare for the CRCT. This event is being sponsored by Horace Mann Insurance Company. They could still use volunteers for this activity. Please click here to sign up.
We have been learning about economics all year with our Classroom Economy. On May 13th, students will apply all their economics skills to create their own mini-business for Market Day! Information will be coming home today!
Market Day Info Market Day Rules
Third grade decided to implement a new program to reward students who show exemplary behavior during each week. On Fridays, those students will be allowed to have extra free time outside after our regular recess time. The students who do not earn the extra recess are not in trouble and are not being punished. We just felt that the students who consistently show respect, follow directions and demonstrate extra effort in academics and social areas should receive some sort of recognition.
End of Year Party
I'm so excited that so many families are able to attend the cook out on May 18th. We've had 15 "Yes" 1 "No" and 4 "No Response Yet" Go ahead and start sending in the $3 to rent the pavilion. Since it's not officially through the school, I won't be able to give you a receipt out of my receipt book. But, I'll do like I did when we went went to Tellus--I'll email you a receipt of payment. In the next few weeks, I'll send out a signup genius for the drinks, side dishes and desserts. I already told my students about my husband's baked beans. He puts sausage and peaches in them! They are delicious!!!!!!
Unless the third grade team changes its mind, last week was our last new spelling list. The review lists are posted on spelling city.com if you'd like your child to continue studying to stay sharp. After the CRCT, we may just do the weekly dictation portion (the silly sentences) to make sure that they are retaining the words from the whole year.
