Dear Fabulous 3rd Graders and Parents,
Happy May! PARCC testing is completed. If your child was absent during PARCC, he/she will be making them up this and next week.

Reminder: Your child should be going on XTRA MATH 3-4 times a week. Every Sunday, I receive an email of who has been going on. This is part of your child's homework. Your child will receive a SHOUT OUT if your child goes on at least 3 days a week for the WHOLE SESSION. Partial sessions will not be awarded a SHOUTOUT. Thank you so much for helping your child become a stronger mathematician!
PLEASE NOTE: Lunchboxes are expected to be kept with your child at THEIR side or in front of them. If your child is seen using his/her lunchbox for anything other than keeping lunch in, he/she will lose the privilege of bringing it to lunch with them. They will be given a bag which can be thrown out, to be proactive. I will contact you, so you know, should this be the case for your child. I appreciate your support in helping our students learn responsibility and making safe choices.
