From Mrs. H's Desk...
We are wrapping up the last few Indiana Academic Standards for grade 3 health. Beginning 2nd semester, I will be using the normal scheduled health time for math problem solving and constructed response writing instruction. You will not see a health grade for quarters 3 & 4. Email me with any questions!
