Head Lice

Please be aware that head lice is going around the school and it is in third grade. Take precautions at home to prevent your child from getting it and from spreading it.

If your child does not bring snow pants and boots they will not be allowed to play in the snow during recess!

New Student

Coming back to school in 2016 we started fresh with a new student in our class. His name is Juelz. We are excited to have him in our class and he is excited to be learning with us too.


In science right now we are learning about weather. This week our focus was on the water cycle. Next week we are moving on to specific kinds of weather like tornadoes, snowstorms, and hurricanes.

In social studies we are busy finishing up our learning about maps by making our own maps. The map can be of any place that they would like. We are working on these in class and I have been encouraging the students to take them home and work as well.


We just started our third chapter in math this week that is working on measurement. We started using a ruler to estimate and measure. We are also talking about gallons, quarts, pints, cups, liters, and milliliters. The last couple days we have had to decide which would be the appropriate unit for measuring liquid volume in certain objects. Ask your child about items at home and see if they remember.


Coming back into the new year we have started fresh with Fairy tales. This is one of my most favorite units because the kids get to be very creative in writing their own fairy tales. We are also looking at classic fairy tales and other knock off versions of classic fairy tales.
