Third Grade Monthly News

Dear Parents,

Well, Spring has sprung!  Third grade is working hard and awaiting Easter Break.  I hope all of you had time to review your student’s 2nd trimester portfolio and were able to return the parent response form by now.  It is very helpful to me, and I hope that you are seeing progress in a wide variety of work.  We do not do portfolios the last trimester, but you will receive most of their work either during the term or at the end.  I hope you encourage your student to work towards the academic and behavioral goals they set for the last trimester.

Thank you to all the parent volunteers who helped with various activities and treats during March, especially those who helped with our fabulous Literature Tea.  Bridgette Klaus and crew did an unbelievable job with our “tea” and the students were sensational with their character interviews.  It is one of my favorite days of the whole school year.  I hope you enjoyed it as much as the students and I did!

April will be full of learning and fun also.  Please continue to help your students with reviewing their multiplication facts,especially to increase their speed.  This will help with division and 2 and 3 digit multiplication problems coming up this term.  Also, I encourage them to use their lovely cursive as often as possible so that they are comfortable with it.

Happy Spring and enjoy your Easter time with family and friends.

Sue Arnold
