The Week Ahead

Good Morning Everyone!
Not much to report this week.  Things are going very well in third grade.  We were lucky to attend the Laughter Yoga assembly on Friday and will be trying to incorporate some techniques in our classroom.
If you have chosen to do a book report this month be sure to work on it this week.  It's due next Monday!
Let's make it a great week in grade three!!!

Hello everyone,
As we get further into the school year we will be using technology more and more.  There will be times when we need headphones for our devices.  We do have some here at school, but some people prefer to use their own.  Please feel free to bring in a pair from home to use, as long it's okay with your parents!
-Ms. D.

Week 5

Happy Fall Everyone!
I am so pleased that the school year is off to such a great start!  We have Change is Simple coming on Friday this week.  Also, we have two library volunteers so far.  It would be super if we could get a couple more.  Please send in the form to Ms. Black as soon as possible if you're interested in helping out.
Thank you!
Ms. D.

Thank you!!!

I would like to thank everyone for my lovely end of the year gift.  The terrarium was such a wonderful idea.  It is so cool, and it looks beautiful in my bay window at home.  The chocolates are absolutely scrumptious!  Thank you all for such a fantastic year.  It was such a joy working with all of you.  I hope you have an amazing summer and I wish you all the best in fourth grade!!!
