  • All visitors must also stop at the office, sign
    in and receive a visitors pass. Adults without
    a pass will be asked to go to the office to
    obtain one.

School Start Time
  • School begins at 830. Students who arrive after
    835 are considered tardy and must stop by the
    office to get a tardy pass. Please do your best
    to drop your child off by 820.
  • If students are consistently tardy or absent,
    Mrs. Prentiss and Mrs. DeMar plan on doing home

  • Students will receive a homework 4 days a week.
    There is no homework on Fridays. Homework is a
    review of the days lessons and should be able to
    be done fairly independently. Homework is graded

  • We have begun a new series this year in math. It
    is called Envision, and it is full of some very
    cool activities. You can also access the entire
    student book, along with e-tools and reteaching
    lessons. Some of the information is even
    available in Spanish. If your student forgets
    their homework and they have on-line access,
    students may complete the independent practice
    instead and turn that in.
  • Please look in the newsletter for ways to
    practice the different skills with your student

  • We will be reading out of the reading series.

  • Book-It will start in October-students can earn a

  • Book Orders are a great way to get low cost, 3rd
    grade books for your student

Science/Social Studies
  • We will study different units of Science and
    Social Studies throughout the year. They include
    Government, Economics, The Environment, Maps,
    World Cultures, etc.

  • What can YOU do to help our school? Join the
    PTO- the Parent Teacher Organization. Through
    the PTO, we can raise money for different school
    improvements, items for our classrooms, and
    improve the school for our students. We NEED

  • Students will celebrate their birthdays on the
    stated day. Birthdays that fall over Winter and
    Spring break will be celebrated when students
    return. Birthdays that fall over summer break
    will be celebrated at the end of the year.
    Birthdays are celebrated at 215. They are
    welcome to bring a snack or parents/guardians may
    bring a snack and celebrate with us. Snacks must
    be Peanut Free. Acceptable snacks include-
  • Skittles
  • Starburst
  • Suckers
  • Licorice
  • Wrapped Hard Candy
  • NO CUPCAKES PLEASE (they are processed in a
    place that also processes peanuts)

Water Bottles
  • Water Bottles
  • Students may bring a water bottle that have a pop
    up sports cap
  • They will be allowed to fill them once per day

Video Games
  • I would like to ask you to please monitor the
    ratings on the games your students may be
    playing. I attended a seminar by a leading brain
    researcher regarding the effect of video games on
    childrens developing brains. Video games that
    involve solving a problem or a puzzle can enhance
    brain development. Violent video games (Call of
    Duty, Halo, Grand Theft Auto, etc) have actually
    been shown to be damaging to developing brains.
    Violent video games have also been shown to
    increase behavior problems in students. I have
    personally seen the effects of these games over
    the years.
  • Students of this age should be playing/watching
    games that are rated
  • EC (Early Childhood), E (Everyone), and possibly
    10 E
  • Ratings to Avoid
  • T (teen), M (mature), AO (adults only)
