Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge

We are so excited to be participating in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge again this year! Students received their log-in information in library class over the past few weeks and can go ahead and begin logging their minutes. Over the summer, the library at OES will be open for students to come in and check out books on Wednesday mornings from 9:30-11:30.

Social Studies Summer Tic Tac Toe

Looking for something fun to do this summer? Check out the 3rd Grade Social Studies Summer Tic Tac Toe board. Completing items on the tic tac toe board will help students review things learned this year about South Carolina's history. There are also many exciting things to see and do in South Carolina relating to our exciting history. Challenge your child to complete at least three of the squares on the board this summer. Students who return the completed tic tac toe board on the first day of school will receive a prize. See the PDF attached to the email for a copy of the summer challenge. Additionally, students were given a paper copy to take home at school today.


Last week an attachment was sent with Weekly Announcements including the Math Summer Packet. Unfortunately the attachment was unable to be opened, therefore, you will find a new attachment this week. Please let Mrs. Jackson know if you have any questions concerning the Math Summer Packet. Happy Learning! :)

WHAT? It's almost summer?

It has been a pleasure teaching each of your children this year. We have loved each and every moment of learning and laughter. We wish you all a safe and happy summer! We know each student will be successful as they move to 4th grade as long as they commit to working hard and trying their best. We will miss our 3rd graders and wish them the best as they continue their education! Thank you for all your support this year! It would not be possible without you!!
