Week of January 5th

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2021, new adventures, new journeys, new questions, new learning!  I hope that all of you had a joy filled, memory making break.  I was blessed with time with my family and friends.  Life seems sweeter and more treasured when shared with those that we love, those who need to be loved, and those that need family. 
Celebrating You!  We have a new bulletin board in our 3rd grade hallway.  The board is to celebrate the students, their accomplishments, trips, awards, photos...all the aspects that make our 3rd graders the wonderful children that we know they are every day.  So...we need your help! If you have pictures that you are willing to share please send them in!  Soccer awards? Gymnastic events?  Basketball pics?  If anything features your child, please share so that we can all share in their moments.
The 2nd quarter will end on January 15th.  Normally, the 2nd quarter ends on the last Friday before break but HEYYYY...nothing was normal about 2020!
So, the 15th of January marks the end of the quarter.  AR goals must be met by the 15th.
