3rd Grade News

May 27, 2014

Dear Parents,

I hope you had a nice and relaxing Memorial Day Weekend. We were hard at work today reviewing for the Social Studies (History) SOL tomorrow. Please encourage your student to get a good nights sleep, eat a good breakfast, and try their best! Feel free to have them look over the sheets of information that came home over the past few months as well as the Picture Review Book that came home 2 weeks ago.

A quick reminder that school library books are due this FRIDAY, MAY 30th! Please help your child look for missing books or send me an email/note and we will look for them here at school.

As always, please don't hesitate to call or email me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. Have a great rest of the week!


Ms. Hutchins


We will be having a toy auction the last week of school. Students should bring in a gently used toy that they are willing to part with. In return, they will have the chance to bid on other gently used toys and possibly take one home! Students have been earning classroom currency (Hutchins Bucks) for various jobs and behaviors. Students are so excited for this event! Please let me know if your child is not able to bring in a toy and I will provide one for them so that they will be able to participate. Toys should be in the classroom by Friday, June 6th. Thank you and please email or call if you have any questions!
