I hope that all of you had a wonderful and restful break. It is now time to get back to work. We will begin 2011 with a running start. We will continue our multiplication timed test through January 31st for our ice cream party, we will also take our addition and subtraction timed test throughout the school year. It is very important that all students master their addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts before they leave third grade. Please continue to work on these flash cards with your students. The multiplication logs are due on January 10th. Many students have already turned these in. If you have completed the log with your child, go ahead and turn it in.
We will have a constellation project coming home on January 3rd, that will be due on January 14th. There will also be an extra credit planet project coming home on January 3rd and it will also be due on January 14th.
WE WILL GRADUATE IN 2020!! We have discussed this every day this school year. It is so important that our children understand the importance of graduating from high school and going on to study in higher education. We have researched the colleges we would like to attend and the careers we would like to have when we get older. We will be completing an extensive research project on our careers and colleges in the coming months.
Thank you for all of your support in 2010. I know that 2011 will bring many successes our way!!
