## Important Dates

9/19 Math study guide comes home

9/26 Math Study guide due

9/27 Math Test

9/20 Third grade Vision and Hearing Screening

Progress report cards went out this week. If you were surprised or had no idea how your student was performing...remember you can always check on their grades on Parent Portal! Also, we send home graded work at least once a week. Several students have been trying to throw their work in the trash on the way out of the door. If you would help us out and be looking for graded work it shows the student that we are on the same page! Please let us know if you have any questions about a grade your child received.

We know grades are new to some of you and especially new to your students so no question is a silly one!!

ASSESSMENTS

We will have our 1st Math Assessment on September 27th. We will send home a study guide next week that will be due on the 26th. So, be on the lookout for that! This math test is sometimes a tough one because we cover so much in this first unit. Some of us have assigned some things on Google Classroom that you can be reviewing that week to study. You can also go on Brainpop, Flocabulary (students can login with google) and rewatch videos relevant to the test!

Because of this study guide we will not have Writing or Math homework the week of September 23rd. We would like your child to only focus on the math study guide. The study guide was made from the test so the questions will look VERY similar!
