Thursday Fun Day!

A week of excitement coming up as the kids anticipate the holiday break.

Thursday, December 20 we will be having ur Polar Express Party 9:15 -10:30  We are planning crafts, games, and snacks related to the Polar Express theme and will be combining all of the 3rd-grade classes. The kids should wear their pajama’s and slippers on this day.

At lunchtime, we will be eating in our classroom. Brecken bought a coupon from the class store for the class to eat together and we thought this would be a great day for it. The kids may still order a hot lunch if they’d like, but a sack lunch might be fun too!

Also, the kids have been working hard to earn OUTSTANDING certificates to get a special reward afternoon. Well, they did it! So, we talked about what we wanted to do and this is what they came up with.

Forts- They may bring in a blanket to construct a fort. They may also bring in a stuffed animal if they would like. During their fort time, they will be doing quiet shared reading and they want to be cozy. If they want to pack an additional healthy snack they may also have it at this time. 🙂

Electronics- They may bring in an electronic device to play with after recess. If they choose to do this they will be responsible for taking care of it. The school will not have any responsibility for lost or broken devices, so take care of what you choose to send in.

Music Program Reminders

The kids were amazing at their morning practice for tonight’s concert! I would recommend that you sit midway or toward the back to be able to see your child while they are on stage. Our class is second to the top on the risers and if you sit too close to the stage you won’t be able to see them very well.

Today quizzes are coming home that might have a red piece of paper attached asking our child to redo their written response on their quiz. All the quizzes have a social studies grade on their quiz. They also have been graded for punctuation and grammar and evaluated for legibility. If your child does not have a red paper attached then they met the standard of “3” for all four areas.

At any time for the rest of the school year, a G.R.I.T. paper may come home for kids to practice the skill marked. Thank you for your support in having your children do quality work!
