Third Grade at Meadowland Elementary

A Note From Third Grade

We can't believe we are already halfway through the school year! The year is flying by.


Please be sure students are charging their laptops each night. Students should be completing math and reading homework each night, as well as practicing their multiplication fluency on Xtra Math. Spelling City can also be completed at home.


On February 14th, students are allowed to pass out Valentines in class. They must bring a Valentine for each student. A class list will be sent home closer to the date. We ask that NO candy be sent in with Valentines. Pencils, stickers, etc. are fine to send.


The parent referral window for Futura is open until Friday, February 7th. If you are interested, please complete the necessary form and return to Mrs. Karen Wright. Forms can be found on the LCPS or Meadowland website: https://www.lcps.org/Page/211705
