Ms. Bellows' 3rd Grade Class

2016-2017

A Note From the Teacher...

Bike Rodeo This Friday

I hope you had a great holiday weekend.


I set up all our technology websites this weekend, so your child will have their login information for the following websites: Pearson math and social studies, Discovery Education, IXL, Raz Kids, and Spelling City. Thank you for your patience, but I had to wait on the technology department before I could create the classes. Please refer to your child's technology sheet (on card stock) in their homework binder pocket. Each child wrote down their information in class on Tuesday. Please let me know if your child has any trouble logging in to these websites. FYI-we do not have Reading Eggs in 3rd or 4th grade.


This Friday is Bike Rodeo at 8:25. See more detailed information at the bottom of this newsletter. Our class will be riding on Course B. Also, our specials schedule will be slightly different due to bike rodeo, so we will be going to music at 1:50 instead of our normal time.


Sign-up Genius will be going LIVE on THIS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH! Our class will be at 6:30pm. The schedule for all third grade classes can be found below if you have a child in more than one class.


Bellows 6:30

Chamberlain 6:40

Davison 7:00

Last, our wonderful room parents for this year are Mary Dalrymple and Melissa Peticolas. Thank you so much for volunteering to help make this year GREAT! They will be sending out important reminders and coordinating our class parties this year. So, please email them your contact information if you would like to be included, so they can set up a parent email group and keep you informed on all the happenings in our class!
