Ms. Damschroder's 3rd Grade

Week of December 7, 2015

Christmas Party--Note to Parents

I sent home a note yesterday for items for our Christmas party. Students with last names H-P are in charge of bringing in items for our party. Parents, please let me know as soon as possible if you would be willing to donate something. Drinks have already been spoken for. Also, for your planning purposes, we will not have a traditional gift exchange, but we will have a "stocking stuffer" party. Students will be asked to bring one small item to school for each student on or before December 18th. Small items will be new and unwrapped. Items could include: pencils, a piece of wrapped candy, an eraser, a sticker, a small inexpensive toy (like something you could find at the dollar stores in the party section) etc. Please do not spend a lot of money. If you need help with this, let me know.

What do I do at home?

Read EVERY night. Find a good book and READ, READ, READ!! You should read for at least 15-20 minutes every day. Make sure you are not reading something that is too easy or too hard. If you need books, let Ms. Damschroder know.

Practice memorizing multiplication and division math facts. if you need flash cards, let Ms. Damschroder know.
