Last Day of School

Tomorrow, June 1st, is the last day of school. It is not a late start, but it is a 2:25 dismissal. Students are also asked to bring a sack lunch and drink for tomorrow. Lunch will not be served here at school. Students may bring pop if allowed by the parents.

Yesterday, May 23, we had our last quarterly assembly for the year. We recognized all students that have had perfect attendance in fourth quarter and also each teacher chose one student that best represents the character trait of Citizenship. I chose Brady Lovell as our recipient.

Here is what I wrote about Brady:
Brady Lovell is a perfect candidate for this citizenship award. He is always willing to help out and is always respectful. He is a good leader and a perfect example for the rest of the students in my classroom. Brady is always nice to his classmates and adults. He always has a positive attitude.

Attached is a picture of Brady with his younger brother Mason, who also received this award!

Sidewalk Fractions

We have been working with equivalent fractions in third grade. One day last week we took the math groups outside and let them draw equivalent fractions with sidewalk chalk. They did a really good job and had a lot of fun!

Reading Logs

We have officially made it to the last month of school. The kids have done a FANTASTIC job returning their reading logs all year long that I decided to give them the last month off. I know that there are a lot of activities going on and it has been difficult the last few weeks to get these done. I appreciate all of your hard work in helping make sure your child has been returning these.

Just because we aren't returning reading logs does not mean we should not encourage our children to read at home. If you have a night where you don't have any activities I ask that you still encourage your child to read a little bit that night.
