Award Ceremony: Our classroom award ceremony is planned for Wednesday, May 18th at 10am. An invitation will be going home shortly. It would be wonderful if every child had at least someone there to help them celebrate their 3rd grade experience.
Informational PI - Online Parent Surveys Available! Please take a moment to complete the online parent surveys. An email went out on Monday, April 18th, explaining how to access the surveys and the informational PI time that you will receive once the surveys are completed.
Cursive Spelling HW: The students are starting to transition from working solely in their handwriting workbooks for cursive into writing in cursive during our spelling homework. The week of 5/2-5/6, spelling homework will consist of all spelling words done 1 time in print and 2 times in cursive.
Connect ED: Please use the ConnectED website to help your child with their reading and social studies skills. This site has the student book available, as well as videos and interactive games to help your child. Use your child's username and password that was typed on a label and placed in their agenda planner. The website to log on to is: http://connected.mcgraw-hill.com/connected/login.do
Think Central: Please use the Think Central website to help your child with their math and science skills. This site has the student book available to view, as well as destination math and mega math. These programs review the skills taught in class. Use your child's username and password that was typed on a label and placed in their agenda planner.

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!
