Mrs. Whicker's Monday Memo

What's happening in 3rd grade this week?

Notes from the Teacher

Welcome Families! Here are some big ideas happening this month:

  • Technology -- We are now using Canvas Calendar to keep track of our daily assignments. Access your child's Canvas account by setting up an observer account.

  • Oct. 18th: PTO meeting at 6:30 p.m.

  • Oct. 27th: Home Learning Parent Workshop -- Mill Creek East is hosting a parent workshop that will focus on the expectations for Home Learning Days in case of weather emergencies. Come learn about what your child will be expected to do on their Chromebook using our Canvas learning management system. The date of the workshop is Oct. 27th at 6:30. Look for more information that will come home closer to the date.

  • Oct. 28th: Fall Parties at 2:45. A big THANK YOU to all the volunteers who are planning and donating items to make this a fun event for our kids! If you would like to help donate something for this party, please send any monetary donations to school by Oct. 25th. I will pass them along to our party planners.

Assessments this Week

Thursday: Topic 5 Math Test

Friday: Spelling Test

AR Points this Quarter

The students need 8 AR points this quarter. For many students, this means taking 2 quizzes a week. Encourage your child to read their AR books each night for at least 15 minutes for their reading log and their books should be done in no time!
