I hope everyone had a great 3 day weekend! We are busy preparing for our Third Grade Musical on Thursday. Performance starts at 6pm, please have your child in our classroom by 5:45pm!
Today, Monday we will be giving our permission slips to Tolmachoff Farms. The trip is scheduled for Monday, December 11th. We will need 4 parents chaperones. Please let me know if you are interested. If we have more than 4 volunteers, we will randomly pick 4 names. Chaperones must complete a Simis volunteer packet, prior to the field trip. Also, if you have not paid the field trip fees, please do so as soon as possible!
The students will be taking the 2nd math CPA on Wednesday.
We are starting a new math book, so old math books will be going home this week for you to keep!
Learning This Week:
Math - In math this week are working on area and perimeter, but students should still continue working on multiplication at home with Xtramath and Aleks.
