Florida Standard Assessment (FSA): Please be sure that your child gets plenty of rest this weekend and arrives to school on time. We have worked very hard this year and I am excited to see our students shine on the Florida Standard Assessment! Testing days are as follows:
ELA Portion: Monday March 23rd & Wednesday March 25th
Math Portion: Thursday March 26th & Friday March 27th
Breakfast will be provided, at no cost, on FSA testing days. If your child does not like what's on the menu, (menu was sent home on Fri. 3/20), please encourage them to eat something at home before coming to school. Thank you!
Field Trip: Our third grade students will have the opportunity to visit the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) in Tampa! Our class will be going on Monday, April 13th. We are very excited about this upcoming field trip and we know that the students will have a wonderful time. The cost of the trip will be $30 for each student and includes admission and transportation. Each student needs to bring a bag lunch and a drink from home, or purchase one from our cafeteria.

Spelling City: Spelling City can be used at your child's pace, for extra practice mastering the spelling words assigned each week. Transform any word list into a fun activity. Choose from over 30 learning games. They'll have so much fun, they won't even realize they're learning! http://www.spellingcity.com/mildelfin/
Box Tops for Education: Our class is collecting Box Tops for Education and could really use your support. Just look for the Box Tops logo on hundreds of grocery and household product, clip the label, and send them in to our classroom. We are trying to earn "free" money for our school (each label is worth 10 cents). So before you throw away any of your used items, please check to see if there is a box top label you can clip for our class. Thank you in advance for your support!
