This week in Third Grade...January 18, 2016

Dear Third Grade Parents,

We can't believe it's mid-January already! Rehearsals for our Native American play begin this week, and we're excited to work with our students on this wonderful third grade tradition. We're also excited about all the creative ideas we're hearing about the on-going work on student Native American projects due on February 4, 2016. If you have any questions related to the Native American project please do not hesitate to contact us! Please remember to check our Third Grade Resource page often as we are uploading new information related to third grade projects, activities and events.

Again, if you have any questions we can assist you with please do not hesitate to contact your Third Grade Team!

Happy Monday!

Mrs. Adanto, Mrs. Sears and Mrs. Garcia
