Emergency Guide for Parents

Last Thursday, your child was given a copy of the District Emergency Guide for Parents. It has information and guidelines to follow in case of a school or community emergency. I noticed one brochure on the floor after dismissal. If you did not get a copy or need another, let me know and I'll make sure your child gets it.

Scholastic Book Orders

Your child received our first Scholastic book order forms. Every time you purchase books from Scholastic, the class enjoys free books added to our library. When placing your online order, use the class activation code GPKNX. Online orders are available beginning Sunday, September 1st. They are due by Friday, September 6th.

Volunteer Opportunities

On Tuesday, September 3rd, around 10 AM, Sign-Up Genius will be up and running for third grade. You will receive an email for each volunteer opportunity. They include Friday Reader, Monthly Helper, Field Trips, Classroom Parties, Thanksgiving, Holiday, & Teacher Appreciation Lunch Chaperons, Art Volunteer, and Class Photographers. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
