Classroom News and Reminders

Cogat Testing- The Cogat assessment measures cognitive development and problem-solving skills. It measures a student's ability to reason and problem solve using verbal, quantitative and spacial (non-verbal) methods to find the answers. Click the links below to find sample Cogat questions/tests. Your child can spend time perusing the links to familiarize themselves with the format of the assessment.

Attestation Forms- Thank you for completing this form EVERY morning!


Field Trips- Several of the students have asked me if we will be going on any field trips this year. I honestly don't have an answer for them. I have no idea what the future holds. Until we figure it out, I would love to take some virtual field trips. If you work some place that is exciting or have an awesome hobby that you would like to share, please let me know. I would love to set up a time for you to take our class or the whole third grade on a field trip with you.


Parent Conferences- Please click on the link below to sign up for a parent conference. I have times available for remote conferences, as well as in-person conferences. Let me know if you can't find a time that works for you. I look forward to speaking with each of you about your child's progress.
