Happy Summer!

Wow! I can’t believe that we just had the last weekend of the school year. I hope that everyone stayed safe and dry. Now, we’re ready to complete the last few days of school for this year. How time has flown since the beginning of the year! I am both sad and excited about the end of the school year. I will definitely miss this group of kids as they move to fourth grade, but I'm also looking forward to the summer and to spending some time with my family and friends. I hope that you all have safe, enjoyable, and relaxing summer vacations. I want to thank all of you for helping to make this a great year. I couldn’t have done it without all of your wonderful support, help, and encouragement. Here’s to a fantastic end to third grade! Only four more days to go!

Wrapping Up The Year

As I am sure you could guess, we are not covering new material this week! We will be wrapping up some loose ends, cleaning out desks and cubbies, taking home various school supplies each day, and doing some fun arts and crafts activities. We'll also attend the school-wide awards assembly on Tuesday and participate in field day on Wednesday. We may even have time for a movie or two! We’ve had a very busy and productive year, so we will certainly have some down time this week and end the year on a much less stressful note. Over the summer, please make sure that your child continues to read and to practice important math concepts, such as multiplication and division facts, so he or she is well prepared to start fourth grade in the fall. Have a great summer vacation!
