Dear Parent,

Field Trip: Our third grade students will have the opportunity to visit Wonderworks in Orlando on Tuesday, April 19th. We know that they will enjoy a day full of hands-on learning experiences.  We will be departing the Intermediate Center at 8:15am and will be returning to the Intermediate Center by 4pm; therefore, your child will need to be picked up or be placed in aftercare at that time. The cost of the trip will be $32.50 for students and includes admission, lunch, and charter bus transportation. Payment and consent form are due no later than March 7th. 


Please see the link below for Spelling City. This is a great way for the students to practice spelling words each week. The site will test them and teach them the words. 


Important Reminders:

Please initial all of your child's homework after you have reviewed each assignment for completeness, accuracy and neatness. Agenda planners need to be initialed on a daily basis after all homework assignments have been completed and checked. Your child's behavior number will be written daily in their agenda.

Your child is permitted to bring a water bottle with them to school each day to keep at their desk. Please make sure it has a lid that can be closed tightly to keep any spills from happening.

Our lunch is every day from 11:42-12:07 in Cafeteria 1.
