ipads- Please continue to make sure that students charge their iPads every night, and place them back in their backpacks for the following day. Thanks again for your help with this! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me.

Homework- Students still have a homework sheet in their green folder that says their homework for the night. Please be sure to check their behavior for that day. You do not need to sign this sheet.

Green Folders- Please send the green folder back to to school each day so we can put any important papers in them to send home.

Box Tops- Please send in any box tops you may have! Place them in a ziploc bag or envelope with your child's name, "Mrs. Cash", and 3rd grade written on it. This is an easy way to raise money for our school!

Reading Logs-Please encourage your child to read at least 20 minutes a night. Students should also be recording their reading on their Reading Logs in their green folders.

Muliplication/Division Facts- Repeat Repeat Repeat. The best way for students to learn their fast facts is repetition. Quiz them with random facts in the car or before they go to bed. Students are now familiar with facts 0-12. The flashcard app and charades app is also an excellent resource. We have been a multiplication game called Multiplication Showdown with other third grade classes. Our class is currently in the lead! Students are really enjoying this friendly competition.

Daddy Daughter Dance- This will take place on Feb. 19th 6pm-8:30pm. PTO is in need of people to serve food and/or make dessert for the event. If you are willing to help, please contact Janna Forrester at

Watch D.O.G.S.-This is a great program for our dad's to be more involved in our school and the lives of your children! Please contact Jane Mann at if interested.
