Mrs. Greene's 3rd Grade

May 6, 2016

Another Amazing Week...

When we are busy in Room 9, time just FLIES by! This week, that statement could not be more true! I told the boys and girls that the last three weeks of school are the most difficult. We have learned so much and it's time to put all of our skills to great use. Lots of assessments and skill practice will take place over the next three weeks!

FYI...Mrs. Mercer is in need of some more 3rd Grade Track and Field Day parent volunteers. If you are interested, please fill out the volunteer sheet that came home a few weeks ago, or email Mrs. Mercer to let her know you are available.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for making Teacher Appreciation Week such a fun week! I appreciate your thoughtful gestures! My team of teachers even enjoyed lunch away from SRE thanks to Mrs. Jenkins, Mrs. McKee, and Mrs. Larson! The best part about this week was the joy on your child's face when he/she handed me a sweet note, card, gift, etc...

Don't forget about our INFORMATION WRITING OPEN HOUSE on Friday, May 20 from 11:00-11:45. We look forward to seeing you and sharing our hard work with you!
