Third Grade Families,

I hope you all had a wonderful break. We are back to working hard in third grade!

A few announcements…

Congratulations to Joseph, Emma, Evan, Brooklyn and Sergio! They were our poetry finalists. Today they recited their poems in front of a panel of judges…fingers crossed!

Our next class field trip will be on Wednesday, May 3rd. We are heading to the SB Museum of Natural History! Please make sure permission slips are turned in by this Friday, April 28th.

This Friday, April 28th is a full day!

On the evening of Wednesday, May 10th intermediate grades will have their music program. Please make sure your child is practicing their parts & songs! If your child is not able to attend the program, please let me know via email.
