Weekly Recap

Well, last week, we finished SOL testing in third grade. There are still some make-up tests and retakes to finish, but for the most part, we are done with testing. Hooray! I know that the students, parents, and teachers are all relieved. The kids worked very hard on the SOL tests, and I’m very proud of them. Aside from the end of testing, we're also down to just thirteen school days left before summer vacation. We have a lot of fun activities and events coming up over the next three weeks, so it’s sure to be a fun-filled end of the year. Please remember to check your child’s Monday folder for any graded work coming home from last week. I hope that all of you enjoyed the weekend and are now ready for the last full week of school this year!

Material Madness

While there are only a few school days remaining this year, we are still working on wrapping up some material in different subjects. This week, we will complete a letter to next year’s teacher, we’ll work on cursive handwriting, and we’ll wrap up some social studies and science concepts, as well. We’ll also have time for some fun end of the year activities, as we celebrate the end of testing and a fun year in third grade. Your child will still have reading homework each evening, so please continue to remind him or her to complete the nightly reading log. We’re not quite done with school, but we’re definitely slowing down, as we get through the last few days. Thanks for all of your help and encouragement during testing and throughout the year. We’re almost done with third grade!

Reminders

** Third grade will be tie-dying tee-shirts to wear on field day. We ask that you please send a white tee-shirt to school for your child to tie-dye. It does not need to be a new shirt, but it does need to be clean. Please send shirts to school by this Friday, May 25th.
