Math extra practice sheets were sent home today for the Chapter 5 Math Test.  Some of this chapter’s concepts were a little more difficult, especially for those students who don’t know their multiplication facts as well. Please have your child use these sheets as needed to study for the math test.  These practice sheets do not need to be returned to school.


****Project Magi – This year the 3rd grade is being asked to donate activity/coloring books for the Project Magi packets. The Dollar Store is a great place to look for these items. These items are due by Thursday, December 20th so that packets can be put together and distributed before the Christmas break. Thank you!

If your child has checked out books from the Bookmobile, please check the due dates and be sure to renew them if they are due over Christmas break. You can do this online, at the public library, or at any Bookmobile location.  They can also return them to the Bookmobile this Tuesday, December 18th.

We will be going out for recess whenever possible. Please be sure that your child has a warm coat, mittens, scarf, and a hat to wear outside. They may also bring snow pants and boots if they want to play in the snow. Thank you!!!

Please continue to review basic multiplication facts with your child.  We will begin multiplication quizzes after Christmas break!
