Reminders and Dates
Our Related Arts Schedule:
Tuesday- PE *Every Tuesday, please make sure your children wear tennis shoes/appropriate clothing to run around and play in.
ipads- Please continue to make sure that students charge their iPads every night, and place them back in their backpacks for the following day. This is a great opportunity to teach responsibility. Thanks again for your help with this! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me. email@example.com
Homework- Students still have a homework sheet in their green folder that says their homework for the night. Please be sure to check their behavior for that day. You do not need to sign this sheet.
Green Folders- Please send the green folder back to to school each day so we can put any important papers in them to send home.
Box Tops- Please send in any box tops you may have! Place them in a ziploc bag or envelope with your child's name, "Mrs. Cash", and 3rd grade written on it. This is an easy way to raise money for our school!
Reading Logs- Students are recording their reading on an electronic reading log called Biblionasium. This is an incredible resource where students are able to see what each other is reading as well! If you do not have internet, students are encouraged to continue logging their reading on paper and then they will record it on Biblionasium the following day, at school.
Muliplication/Division Facts- Repeat Repeat Repeat. The best way for students to learn their fast facts is repetition. Quiz them with random facts in the car or before they go to bed. Students are now familiar with facts 0-12. The flashcard app and charades app is also an excellent resource. We have been a multiplication game called Multiplication Showdown with other third grade classes. Our class is currently in the lead! Students are really enjoying this friendly competition.
Watch D.O.G.S.-This is a great program for our dad's to be more involved in our school and the lives of your children! Please contact Jane Mann at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
Field Trip- Our field trip is on Monday, April 11th to Ashtabula Plantation in Pendleton. If your child is bringing a lunch, please make sure all items are disposable.
Schoolstore.com- Starting Monday, our school will have an opportunity to raise money through schoolstore.com. Giftcards, magazines, etc. can be purchased online all year long, and a percentage of the proceeds goes back to Spearman! See your child's green folder for more details.
Testing- SC Ready Testing will be April 26th-28th. Please make sure your child is present during those days. It is also important that they are getting a good night's sleep and eating well so that they are ready to do their best during testing week. Thanks so much!
