Multiplication and Division Test

-When: Nov. 8

-Study Guide due Nov. 7

Music Program Nov. 14

-Get ready to see our fabulous 3rd graders in their production of “Broadway Beat”! We’ll have songs from five musicals: Wicked, Newsies, Rent, Hairspray, and HAMILTON!

-Here is some information about our performances.

We will perform at 9 AM for the students at Shepard on November 14, then later that day we will repeat the performance after the PTA meeting.

Students will wear any Shepard shirt and jeans, or pants as close to jeans as they can get. If a student doesn’t own a Shepard shirt or cannot borrow one, then any colorful t-shirt will work.

We will perform after the PTA meeting which starts at 6:00, so I’d like for students to be here by 5:50. We will meet in the gym.

The program is about 25 minutes long, so I think we will be completely finished by around 7 pm.

What are we learning?


-We are exploring and recording how soils are formed by weathering of rock and decomposition of plant and animal remains.


-Equations and Patterns

Language Arts:

-Fables, myths, folktales, fairy tales, and legends are different from each other and have their own distinctive traits, yet share some commonalities.

Social Studies:

-Students will learn how communities have changed over time.

Thank you to all the parents who donated cardboard for Arcade Day! The kiddos had such a great time and it was so fun to watch them build their games! We love putting learning into action!
