Weekly Announcements

August 16th:


  1. Students did a great job this week remembering their Take-Home folders. Take Home folders have two sides labeled for papers that need to go home and papers that need to be returned to school. Please pay attention to this as it makes Mrs. T’s job easier :-)
  2. We will not have daily snack this year in third grade.
  3. Your student should have brought information home on Wednesday about the BOG. We will be going through a practice booklet on Monday so students are familiar with the format of the test. Please make sure your student is ON TIME on Wednesday, August 21st.
  4. I have attached a math newsletter to our weekly email to review what we covered in math this week as far as multiplication. I would encourage your student to practice the strategies we have learned so far to solve multiplication problems at home (drawing arrays, drawing groups, repeated addition, number bonds).
  5. Students brought home information about the Cookie Dough fundraiser on Thursday afternoon. Please let me know if you did not receive this information.
  6. Students will need their own recorder for music class this year. Please send that in as soon as possible.
  7. Since I am new to River Mill, I will not be officially in PowerSchool until payroll goes through at the end of August. This means I can not put grades up until then. Thank you for your patience.
  8. Thank you to everyone who has sent in extra things for our classroom this year. Your support is greatly appreciated!


August 9th:

  1. Take-Home folders will be going home on Monday. Please be sure to send this folder back to school with your student everyday. Students will be keeping track of their behavior, reading logs, homework, notes, etc. in these folders.
  2. Reading logs will go home on Monday. Please have your student read for at least 20 minutes each night and record it on their log.
  3. Written homework will start in September. Please have your student start filling out their reading log on Monday.
  4. I am still learning how to update our class website but hope to complete that this weekend. I will also be posting our weekly updates on there once it is up and running.
  5. We will start ice cream in September. There will be more information on this to come.
  6. Please send your student with a water bottle to school. This is especially important right now as our recess time is at the end of the day, four days a week, and it is very hot outside. We have water bottle holders for each student in our room to help keep track of them.
