Third Grade Newsletter
Week of February 19-February 23, 2018
Our field trip to the Derby Museum is this Tuesday on the 20th. Please have your child bring their lunch AND drink in a disposable container.
Here are some announcements for the upcoming week:
*Our students have a chance to enter the National Student Poetry Contest. There is a $500 grand prize. Students have until April 30th to turn in their entry. Please have your child see their homeroom teacher for details if they're interested. We would LOVE to have our students published and WIN.
*Conference sign-ups for Parent Teacher Conferences went home 3 weeks ago. We still need to see several parents who have not signed up. Please pick a particular day and time and have your child send it in to their homeroom teacher. We want to meet with ALL of our parents. It is very crucial that parents and teachers work together so that each child can be successful in the classroom.
*Mrs. Herberger and Mrs. Vidourek are promoting "The Dream Out Loud Challenge" contest. This is a statewide contest in which students could win a $1,000 college savings account and $500 for our school. The contest starts January 15th and ends on March 19th. For further details, please have your child ask their homeroom teacher for more information.
*Please take a few moments to complete the JCPS Comprehensive School Survey that went home on Monday, 8th. This may also be completed online. The survey is good thru March 16th. A link has been sent via email. We use this feedback to make informed decisions about our school and to make sure your voice is heard. (If you have more than one student then a survey needs to be completed for EACH student.)
*Please continue to check your child's Monday folder. This has important papers that need to be signed as well as graded assignments.
* We go outside every day when the temperature is 32 degrees or higher for wellness (physical activity). Please be sure to send appropriate clothing with your child for this outside time.
Thanks for all you do and have a great week!
