Report Cards

I hope you've had a chance to look at your child's report card. If you are unable to view it on Campus, I will have a paper copy at conferences.

iPad Success Continues!

Thank you SO much for your home support with getting the iPads going (and getting them back to school)! I appreciate the feedback. Also, I am just fine if students wish to complete their homework on paper instead of on Schoology.

We will be taking iPads home again on Tuesday, February 16. The goal will be to complete the math homework for that day on Schoology (or try an app we use in the classroom).

**THANK YOU TO ALL FAMILIES WHO CHARGED THE IPAD AT HOME! I didn't ask students to do this, but many came back with 100% battery life. Awesome! It made a big difference. I greatly appreciate your help with this!


Thank you to you all for helping your third grader find a treasure at home to bring and share with our class. They did such a great job of sharing respectfully. It was a fun way to get to know each other on a new level. We'll try it again in the spring!

Please remind your third grader to:

-returning the Family Journal at the beginning of the next week



Apps To Try...

Don't forget that your student has access at home to the following online resources:

-Spelling City (for our prefix lists)

-IXL (math)

-Raz Kids (reading)


-Word Mover-have them use it to create a poem; words to describe a character in the book they're reading

**If you would like another copy of your child's login information, please let me know. I would be more than happy to send it home/email it to you.
