Big picture

Get connected to Class Dojo so you don't miss a thing! Contact your child's homeroom teacher if you have any questions about getting connected!


Feel free to come eat with your child at lunch AFTER Labor Day (starting NEXT week). Our lunch time is from 12:15-12:45 every day. Please remember that if you bring food, you may only share this with your child.

Fridays are jean days with a Hawk spirit shirt. Woohoo!

We love celebrating birthdays! If you would like to send something for your child to share with the class for his or her birthday (cupcakes, etc.), please remember that we celebrate at the end of the day with store-bought treats. Please drop off any birthday items at the front office, and we will celebrate as a class at the end of the day!

In order to promote high attendance, we will be spelling out the word ATTENDANCE. Each day that our class has 100% attendance a letter will be added. When the whole word is spelled out, we will celebrate. We will also have a school wide prize for the grade level with the highest attendance. Please help us reach our goal in 3rdgrade!
