Week of August 18

· Open House is Tuesday night, August 26. The PTA will also be having a meeting that evening. Please come meet our new PTA and join us for a very informative evening.

· Violin Lesson Registration Forms were sent home last Friday. They are due back this Friday, Aug. 22.

· This week we will begin reading the novel Charlotte’s Web. It will take us seven weeks to complete the novel. Every student will be using a copy of the novel at school, but it may not be brought home. I highly recommend that you borrow or purchase your own copy so that your child can reread it at home. We will be reading 3 chapters a week and will have tests on Fridays, along with vocabulary from each chapter.

· No School Monday, Sept. 1 for Labor Day Holiday.

· Grandparents’ Day for third grade is Fri., Sept. 12.

· We are observing insects in our science station. If you have any dead intact insects, please send them in a container or Ziploc bag. Thanks Evan for bringing the butterfly!

·          Reminder: Parents, please initial your child’s daily behavior each day.
