Third Grade News

Week of November 16th

Classroom News


We took our first round of timed tests on Friday and the students did very well. Many students have already earned their "ticket" to watch a movie. Make sure that your child is still practicing their facts every night so they can keep mastering their multiplication facts.

Canned Food Drive

The Canned Food Drive is going on until this Wednesday, Nov. 18th. Please keep sending in those cans so that we can help the House of Hope!

Texas Roadhouse Rolls

Please be asking family and friends to help support our school and future Archery Program by buying the rolls, butter, and gift cards. Orders are due Nov. 30th.

Reader's Theater

We will begin working on our Reader's Theater (like a play) this week and will be presenting it next Tuesday, Nov. 24th at 1:45 PM in our classroom. All families are invited to come watch! Please have your child practice reading their parts out loud and using emotion as they read. They will not have to memorize their parts.
