Welcome to 3rd Grade!


  • We have had a wonderful first day of school today! We have started our Saxon Math lessons, worked on team work skills in Science, and have learned a lot of new information about each other. I'm so excited for the rest of the year! 
  • Handbooks have gone home. Please review these and return the forms from the back of the book to the school by the end of next week (August 17th). 
  • If you have not paid the $40 supply fee and the $40 class dues, please send them to school with your child as soon as possible. 
What We Are Learning: 
  • Reading and Language Arts: 
    • Getting Started in Open Court
