Animal Projects & Presentation

Wow! We have completed our animal report/projects and are ready for the presentations to begin. Thank you for helping your children create such incredible projects. The entire third grade team is impressed.


We will spend the next week in class sharing our animal findings. Students have signed up in class and will present throughout the week. We do know that this is an exciting project and we are excited to hear and see what each child has made.

Box Tops for Education

Wow! We have already collected over 325 Box Tops...our goal is to get to 1,000!! We love a good Box Top Blizzard! Each and every student can earn a prize for turning in as many Box Tops as possible. Remember...grandparents, aunts/uncles, friends and nieghbors might have a few extra Box Tops hanging around their homes, so ask them, too! All Box Tops are due by February 11...or sooner. Thank you for helping us reach our goal of Most Box Tops in School!!

Roaring Readers Program

Please join us in reading for 600 minutes to earn a free pass to Roaring Springs Waterpark. Students have already received their reading log, which are due back to school by the middle of March. Students are reading for 20-25 minutes each night, so the kids should be able to reach that goal pretty quickly! Thank you!
