News from 3rd Grade

Ms. Doerr's Room

Short and Sweet

Sorry this newsletter is short. We have been soooo busy trying to get back into our normal schedule, that I didn't have time to take pictures! Here is what I need to tell you:


1. I am so proud of the effort all of the kids gave on ISTEP. They worked so hard and did not seem too stressed out. :)


2. Our garden is starting to sprout! We have cherry tomatoes and green peppers in our grow labs. We have peas, lettuce, onions, and carrots in the ground. The kids are loving to check on them every day!


3. If you haven't returned your child's picture money or unwanted pictures, please do so a.s.a.p.


4. We really need candy donations for our Crazy Carnival basket. Please don't send in loose small candies. Unopened bags, boxes, dispensers, or kits would be much appreciated.


5. The P.T.O. needs volunteers to run games at the Crazy Carnival. Right now, they are critically short. Please volunteer if you can.


6. April reading calendars are due on Monday.


7. It is almost May and I am already starting to get very emotional about sending these kids to 4th grade. Can I keep some of them?
