Welcome Back!  
I am so excited to meet all of my new 3rd grade Jackets! 


We will begin to learn multiplication in 3rd grade!  Please remember to study multiplication facts each night with your child. 

Memorization is the key to learning multiplication facts! Your child will have a "Math Fact Café" sheet to work each night to reinforce multiplication facts, but they will also have numerous opportunities to work on it throughout the day. 

Your child will have a "Math Fact Cafe'" test every Friday.

*Please make sure you are helping your child study their multiplication facts each night. It is imperative that your child knows their multiplication facts in 3rd grade! 

*Spelling tests in 3rd grade are on Thursday each week. Students will take their weekly spelling test on the computer.

Test Schedule:


July 19-20: Registration for the 2018-19 School Year

*To receive your child’s postcard with his or her teacher information, 
you must bring two proofs of residency and pay the supply fee.  The supply fee is $30 for students in grades 1-4.
