AHOY Filone's Savvy Sailors,


Notifications about the Holiday Celebration have been sent home.  I  am in need of 2 more volunteers to help at a holiday theme center from 8:40-9:45.  We have to limit volunteers due to parking constraints.    

I have placed the powerpoints below as PDF Documents that were shared at last evenings Third Grade Parent Night. There is useful information on FSA, Writing and Cold Reads.


 Important Reminders:

Below is a link to the Sunshine State Young Reader Awards for you to view. The students have already enjoyed seeing this presentation in class with Mrs. Lyons.

Please sign your child's AR Tracking Sheet that is located in the plastic sleeve of your child's red take home folder.

I have placed my Open House powerpoint presentation below as a PDF document. 

Usernames and Passwords for Connected and ThinkCentral have been placed on labels and can be found in the front of your child's agenda! You now can access to our Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies books and online materials. I will attach directions below for each as a PDF. If you are having any difficulty accessing these materials online at home, please let me know.

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. 


Helpful Hints:

Our lunch is every day from 11:08-11:33 in Cafeteria 1.

 PI Opportunities: If anyone is interested in PI opportunities, please send me an email or give me a call! Thank you for all of your help and support. I have PI projects that can be done in school or at home!
