Students may write test dates and other information in their student planners/calendar. I do not require that the planners be signed, but I do ask that students bring the planners back to school each day.

Grandparent’s Day

Grandparents are invited to lunch with third grade on September 11th. After lunch, grandparents may take their grandchild shopping at the book fair. We go to lunch at 10:35 and grandparents are asked to meet our class at the lunchroom. Keep an eye out for a note in the event of a time change.

Math Tests:

Three Digit Addition:

We will have a test on three digit addition on Thursday, September 3rd.


Three Digit Subtraction:

We will have a test on three digit subtraction on Thursday, September 10th.

Chapter 2 Mid-Chapter Review and Test (Graphs):

We should get these tests in by the end of September. Keep an eye on your child’s communication folder for practice pages that will be sent home the night before the tests.


I may grade classwork from time to time, so students are expected to listen and do their best work at all times.



Things to work on at home:

  • Read to your child or have him/her read to you!
  • Discuss the spelling and vocabulary words aloud each week and use them in sentences.
  • Look over and discuss any math pages sent home.
