Third Grade Weekly News

A look at what's happening in the week ahead

Dear Parents,

Our Read, Deed, Run group is collecting boxes of cereal for the YMCA summer programs. Next time you’re at the store please pick up and extra box/bag (or two) to donate. Donations are accepted until Friday, April 7th. Thanks for helping kids and families in need!


A reminder about our behavior communication folders - these will be used to bring behaviors needing improvement to your attention as well as to celebrate the awesome days that your child has. Those will be kept in their binders and will come home each Monday with their communication folders. Please initial the week and return it on Tuesday.


Please look in your child’s purple folder each Monday for important papers, as well as graded work before sending the folder back to school with your child on Tuesday. There is also a place for a signature inside the folder - please sign and date the folder before returning it to school.


Please remember that if you have a change of transportation, to send an e-mail to fe@katyisd.org before 2:30pm. You may cc us so that we are informed too. Thank you!


A note from our PTA...

Hello Fielder Families!

Our annual Spring Carnival, Carnival GO!, is less than 2 weeks away and we need your help. The Carnival Go! Booklet that went home in purple folders last week had all the forms and information that you will need. There are some changes this year, the biggest is we are having the carnival on a Saturday due to their not being a half day on a Friday in April. If you have lost your booklet do not worry, because I have attached a copy to this email. Right now we need volunteers. We need parents to help on Saturday and we also need donations for our cake walk. You can cut the forms out of the booklet and send them in or you can go to www.pt-avenue.com to make purchases and sign up to volunteer. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Also, just a note about the garage sale. We only have 65 spots to sell and have already sold 10 without a flyer even going home. If you are planning to purchase a spot, I would advise going online to pt-avenue to make your purchase. The garage sale will be May 20th 7AM-10AM rain or shine.

Sincerely,

Jaime Burris
