Every weekend I will post the upcoming plans on the distance learning link on our page on the right side of the 3A page. I will also be being emailing you the plans.

3A Volume 22
February 27, 2020
Remember the musical is next week so continue to have your child practice their part. We were able to get some practice in today and quite a few students didn’t know their lines. We will be rehearsing at the end of the day on Monday and Tuesday also. The students will also get more practice on Wednesday and Thursday when they perform for the school.
We have had quite a few students forgetting their names on papers and homework the last 2 weeks so we are trying to work hard next week on remembering homework and names on papers. Along with the forgetting it seems that spring fever has started to hit 3A so we have been reviewing procedures and rules of our classroom as reminders. We have been really focusing on listening when others are speaking, using appropriate voice level inside, and walking in the hallway quietly. We have been talking as a class and also as a grade about how important our behavior is and being responsible so we will be ready for 4th grade. At home reviewing about how these are all important would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you have any questions. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and you get to enjoy the nice weather!
