It's the Final Countdown!

To keep kids engaged and focused as much as possible in the classroom, the third grade will be participating in a final 10 day countdown to the last day of school. Each day, we will pop a balloon to see what special activity will take place the following day! We will pop our first balloon on Thursday and will enjoy our first activity on Friday! Stay tuned for our activities!


Other important dates to remember:

  • Thursday, May 12th from 6-7pm is the KKids Literacy Bingo Night here in the cafeteria. All are welcome to join!
  • Monday, May 16th is the last KKids meeting (our celebration)
  • Thursday, May 19th we will have lunch a few minutes later at 11:30 to accommodate 4th grade going to the middle school for a tour.

I am also planning to have a pizza party on Thursday, May 26th. If anyone is able to help me out with this I would greatly appreciate it! I might need pizzas picked up or help during the party as well. Thanks in advance!

Homework

Homework packets went home on Friday, May 6th and are due this Friday, May 13th.


I gave the incentive that if both homework packets were turned in this week then students would only have one packet (reading or math- their choice) to complete the following week).

K-Kids Literacy Bingo Night is this Thursday!

The KKids Literacy Bingo Night is this Thursday, May 12th from 6-7pm in South's cafeteria.


Families and students are invited to come join in on an hour of friendly bingo, while learning the importance of literacy at home!


Each person that comes will leave with literacy materials (first come, first serve) and has the chance to win literacy games, new books, or gently used books- all while playing bingo!


See you on Thursday!
