Third Grade Thoughts
Weekly News from Glenhope 3rd Grade! (Volume 15-16, Issue 2)
Thank you for the donations we have received so far...they are so appreciated! We are still in need of some things, if you would like to make a donation:
-standard card decks (for math games)
Have any old chapter books? We are trying to grow our classroom libraries. If you have any old books you would like to donate, we would happily accept them!
Glenhope is also doing its annual Greenback fundraiser. Instead of doing a "catalog" type fundraiser where your child has to ask neighbors, friends, and relatives to order products, we hold a Greenback fundraiser instead. If you would like to donate check or cash, you can send it in to school. All Greenback money goes directly to support our needs. For example, a portion of this year's Greenback money will be used to purchase movement stools for every classroom. Each grade level also will receive a $500 stipend from Greenback funds to purchase much needed items. Thank you for your support!

We also recommend a wonderful book by Carol Dweck called Mindset. It is an easy read and describes growth mindset vs. fixed mindset in an understandable way.
