Communication and Transportation change
For any transportation changes, you may send a note, email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or contact the main office. Please note that if you send an email, it is difficult for me to receive it if is sent after 12:30pm the day off- it may not be read in time. The most preferred way is by calling the office 773-535-0040.
Curriculum Night (*updated CORRECTED DATE)
Curriculum Night will be Wednesday, September 27th from 5:30p-7p. We will be discussing the 3rd grade curriculum at Lenart, classroom and whole school expectations, as well as critical information regarding promotion to the next grade and summer school.
We are still set to test NWEA math on September 26th from 8:00a-10:00a. Though we had technical difficulties last Wednesday, the 20th, while taking NWEA reading, most students were able to finish their tests. Those who have not finished will be taking their test on Thursday afternoon, September 28th.
The Book Fair will take place in the gym from Monday, September 25th to Friday, September 29th. Students will have the opportunity to "preview" the fair on Monday. Please send students with the appropriate amount of money if they are to purchase something. If students do not have money then they will not be able to visit the fair after the "preview day."
Math Curriculum (Envision 2.0)
I will be sending out log-in information during Curriculum night for our math curriculum. Through the website, you will find videos and sample problems that will provide extra support for your student as well as guide parents as to how the content is taught in class.
The following schedule is for fall NWEA testing:
Reading - Wednesday, September 20th (8:00a-10:00a)
Math - Tuesday, September 26th (8:00a-10:00a)
On days that we are testing, please make sure that your child has a good night's rest and eats breakfast in the morning.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me email@example.com.
September Important Dates
September 27th - Curriculum Night (5:30p-7:00p)
Please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are available to volunteer in the classroom on Wednesday (Sept. 13th) AND next week (week of Sept. 18th). I will need about 2-3 volunteers to help me tear out pages in our math workbook and organize them.
Oh my- I can't believe the first day of 3rd grade has already passed!
Today we focused on classroom routines and procedures as well as community building. These next couple of weeks will be extremely important in building the foundation to having our classroom run smoothly.
Please check the "Homework" tab at the top of this classroom website for daily updates on homework. Due to our focus on community building and practicing routines, content will slowly be introduced and homework will be "light" this week.
As a reminder, please submit all student fees and forms that were sent home today.
Summer HW Packets
Summer homework packets will be collected tomorrow, Wednesday (today's hectic schedule and didn't allow for me collect the packets! My apologies.)
