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!


I have many fun (and educational!) activities planned for the week of December 14-18. If anyone can donate any of the following items, I would really appreciate it! Thanks so much.
