This week we have a Language Test on Tuesday the 22nd and Friday we have our History Test. I will make a study guide to help your student be prepared. Also if you get a big stack of "graded papers" this will help you observe where your student may need help and where they are excelling.

    Hello third grade parents. I am so excited to teach your children this year. I have attached a link on the right of this page with our weekly newsletter on it. Please read through it, as it will be posted weekly with upcoming studies and events. I encourage you all to check out the principals note weekly as well to stay updated on the school. Every week I will leave a copy of your students spelling words right here for easy access in-case they lost their hard copy that gets sent home at the beginning of the week. As we come into our classroom on Tuesday, please put your students supplies right on their desk and we will sort through it all. I will be sending home a class expectation letter and some "parent homework" for you as well this week. I pray each one of your families is blessed with Joy and Peace from our Lord.
