The Rhino Periodical

Mrs. Bruner's 3rd grade class

Welcome Back!

I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe Spring Break vacation. I cannot wait to hear what fun and exciting things you guys did while you were off from school. I spent my Spring Break with my family, relaxing at home. I even got to see a concert at the Rodeo! Hopefully, everyone is well rested for the rest of the semester. It's going to be a busy couple of months!

Reader's Theater

Mark your calendars! Next Thursday afternoon, April 2nd, the book club will be hosting a Reader's Theater event. It is going to be so much fun! They will be reading scenes from Gary Paulsen's Harris and Me. Be sure to be there to support them! Snacks will be available for you to purchase.

Snapshot District Testing

It is that time again! Rhino district will be administering Snapshot testing this week. You guys have shown me that you know your stuff - so do not be nervous! Make sure that you get a good night's rest on Monday, so that you will be alert for your exam Tuesday. Also, eat a good breakfast so that you have a lot of energy. I know you all will do a great job. Go Rhinos!

Candy Sales Begin!

This Friday, March 27th, Rhino Elementary will be giving out boxes of candy for you to sell to your friends and family. The money raised goes right back to you! It will be used to help pay for the cost of field trips, special events, and to support clubs and teams at your school. Please remember to be safe and to only sell your candy to people that you know and that your parents / legal guardians have given you permission to sell.
