Mrs. Kelley's 3rd Grade Class Newsletter

January 2015

Hello Families,


Please remember there is no school on January 19th in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. day. Please enjoy the long weekend and this beautiful weather!!


Third grade students will take the STAAR test this spring: April 21 Math STAAR and April 22 Reading STAAR. Beginning this week, I will begin to prepare students with activities in class to practice test taking skills and "test like" questions for math and reading passages. As the test date nears, you will begin to see some homework assignments to practice these skills at home.

If you would like more information about this state mandated test, please see the TEA website for informative links.
