Google Expeditions

What an exciting experience for our class today! We had a chance to go into the virtual world of google expeditions! We were able to visit places from the moon to the coral reefs and lots of things in between. Ask your child about their expeditions today!

Testing and Assessment Dates

We have lots of things going on in the next few weeks. If at all possible please try to have your children present on these dates. If your child is going to be missing any of these dates please let me know so I can arrange make up times.


This is the state test that all third graders in the state complete. There will be more information coming home from Mr. Russ about this.

Dates for our Forward Exams:

April 12: Practice Test

April 18 and 22: Reading Test

April 25: Math Test


May 10: Reading

May 17: Math

May 18: One on one reading assessments with me

Field Trip - Discovery World

We are heading to Discovery World on April 29. When I applied for the Kohl's grant last spring I didn't realize that they also went as second graders. So we will do it again :) Please look for a field trip permission slip that came home with your child today. We are in need of five chaperones for this trip.


Next week begins our classrooms time for roller skating. Students will not be able to participate unless they have a helmet. Please make sure that they have one at school on Monday.

Biography Writing

Students are going to be writing a biography about a special person in their lives. Please be looking for a questionnaire or graphic organizer for your child to fill out about the person they are choosing to write about. This is different from the biography project that they did as second graders last year. Connecting with a person in their life.
