Third grade is the Place to Be! It is the place to continue growing, and learning, and becoming more of who you were created to be.
WEEKLY PHONE CALLS TO HOME UPDATE: I will be calling again next week (week of Sept. 18-22) to touch base after Progress Reports. Continue to get those signed Progress reports back so I can confirm that you saw them and to be aware if there are conference requests. Thank you!
Ok...so that did not happen. I hope to accomplish phone calls home this coming week.
Sept. 28 update: It is early Thursday morning and I fully suspect phone calls home will not happen this week either. I do apologize for the delay. As the tempo picks up in the classroom I am finding that I am having much less "free time" to do such wonderful extras like touching base with parents. It is proving to be a 10 hour day during the week and additional hours over the weekend to develop and tend to a dynamic third grade program. I am NOT complaining! It is a mere recognition that not everything is fitting in at the moment.

REMINDERS FOR WEEK OF Oct. 16-19 > I am looking forward to having a few moments with parents this week with Parent / Teacher Conferences on Tuesday this week! As per the decision of the administration and staff, grade cards will be handed to parents as part of the Parent/Teacher Conference experience on Tuesday, Oct. 17th. Any grade cards not collected during conferences will simply be sent home with the student on Wednesday. Fifteen minutes is A REALLY BRIEF period of time! Here is what I have prepared for you in order to maximize our time: *Grade cards *Initial math program scores (Ready Math online diagnostic) *NWEA testing results *Executive Function awareness for students and parents SPECIAL REMINDER: If you will need time to discuss items other than the ones listed above, please bring your calendar with you to the conference so we can schedule a personalized session!
> Spelling list and weekly word practice for this week are under Parent Info button >Water is welcomed in the classroom in containers that will not "accidentally" spill >Students may bring a snack for afternoon milk break - healthy and snack-sized please Update: The duck Dots has been sharing his duck food (pretzels) with students who did not remember to bring one. Dots loves to share, however all ducks are on a government fixed budget and they can sometime run low on funds. As much as possible, if your child would like an afternoon snack, please send one with them. >Public Library visits on Wednesday of this week - thank you for your help in returning books as needed! >To complete the Reflex math homework assignments consult login information you received during Open House or their agenda.
What does 13,600 look like stacked on the desk?!
Our First Monarch to Be Released to Freedom! We are wishing him well!

Sept. 6th...Beck releases his first "baby." Beck found this guy when he was just a tiny caterpillar, feed it for days, watched it become a chrysalis, AND THEN saw it emerge during Math lesson yesterday. Head for Mexico, Mr. Monarch!
