Welcome to 3rd grade!  



In 3rd grade, children will continue to develop their writing, math skills, as well as reading. They will also have science, social studies, health, and Spanish.


You will notice that your child will be bringing a blue folder home daily. Homework and other school related papers will also be sent home in this folder. It should be in their 1 inch binder along with their Student Planner.   



Please practice multiplication facts daily!  



100 Book Challenge!


Students should be reading 30 minutes EVERY DAY!  After they are done reading they can fill out their reading logs!  Students that reach 500 books by the end of the school year will earn a pizza party with Principal Wolff!
