Notes for Mrs. Dunagan and Mrs. Mizell

Mrs. Mizell’s Head Minion is Cayden Carr!

Miriam Navarro is Mrs. Dunagan's Dynamite student of the week!

Please remember to send a HEALTHY snack to school each day!! If your child arrives after 8, you must walk them in and get a tardy slip.

Please make sure your child is at SCHOOL. It is very important. If for some reason your child is out, please send a note with them.

Please remember that you may not invite other children to eat with you and your child at lunch.

What Are We Learning?

Reading - Drama and Research

Writing - Research

Math - Personal Finance

Study multiplication facts!

Science - Ecosystems


We are researching individuals that have made a contribution to society. Your child can print out pictures or information from home to use at school. Some basic information that they need to know about their person is:

  • Date of Birth
  • Dates when he/she was in school and graduated
  • Date of Marriage (if married)
  • Date(s) of major accomplishment
  • Date of Death (if not still alive)

The bulk of the work will be done at school; however, any information or pictures that you want to send would be great! They will also need to bring a poster board ASAP!!

We would love for you to join us on our Field Trip. At this time we are not sure if parents can ride on the train and boat ride with us. There is limited seating. We will let you know as soon as we find out. Either way, we would love for you to join us! It is going to be a fun filled day!! We will send you more information as it becomes available.

End of Year Behavior Note

Our 3rd grade year is beginning to wind down and we have a lot of fun activities coming up! Once the STAAR test is over, we have something going on every week until the last day of school. In order to keep behavior under control, we are implementing a behavior system like we have done for past events. Stapled to this letter, you will notice 5 words that are in boxes as well as a box at the top for your signature. These letters represent the activities your child has the chance to participate in, if they have good behavior.

  • (Track) Track Day- Thursday, April 30th
  • (Train) Field Trip to Jefferson- Tuesday May 5th & Thursday, May 7th
  • (Color) Color Fun Run- Monday, May 25th
  • (Hula) Hula Hoop Teacher Basketball Game – Tuesday, May 26th
  • (Wax) Living Wax Museum- Tuesday, May 26th

If your child moves their color they will mark out a letter depending on the color they have moved it to. It will follow like this:

  • Yellow- 1 letter
  • Orange- 2 letters
  • Red- 3 letters

If they lose ALL of their letters from a word, they will NOT be allowed to attend that activity. We want every child to be able to participate and we want East Elementary to be represented well in our community. Please encourage your child to show their CHAMPS behavior at school. Your signature is REQUIRED so you are aware of this behavior system. Please sign and return to your child’s teacher as soon as possible. We are looking forward to these fun activities with your child!

Sincerely, 3 rd Grade Teachers
