Third Grade News

Imogene Gideon Elementary


Hello! Wow! May already? We have a busy last month of school planned here at Gideon. Field Day, MISD Natatorium Field Trip, and Awards Day are just part of the plans that we have as we wrap up the school year.

We continue to be hard at work here in third grade! Keep reading with your child at home and working on multiplication facts. A great website to refer to is (see link at the bottom of the page). Also, keep in mind that students can work on IStation and Education Galaxy from home (please contact your child's homeroom teacher if you need login assistance).
