3rd Grade News

January 18-22

Announcements & Other Exciting Things

  • Book orders will be going home throughout the month (Scholastic gives out a bunch for January). They will all be due on Friday, January 29th! If the class orders $100 or more worth of books this month, we get a free book for every student in the class!
  • I hope everyone enjoyed their day off!
  • Progress Reports will be coming home this week. Please sign and return ASAP!
  • You will be seeing some papers from earlier in this trimester coming home throughout the next couple weeks. I kept them so I could record grades for progress reports. So if your child says "Hey we did this weeks ago," they probably did :)
