19 pretty creative kiddos…making third grade an awesome adventure!

The more we know…the more we grow!

The beginning of the school year is always so busy and full of information!  Here are a few things that could help you…

Stay in the know:
I will send text messages via the Remind Program.  You can get the directions in your child’s backpack tonight! I will use this system for reminders of delayed starts, spirit days and even a snow day (let’s hope there are far less this year)!

Book Orders:
Please place your child’s book order by Thursday night.  I will submit the order at 9:00pm.  If you don’t have the form, please go to: http://www.scholastic.com. Use the activation code: GPZ62.  This is a great way to help us build our classroom library at the same time as building your child’s library.  Our class earns free books, discounted books and coupons for upcoming titles.

Join the PTA!
Joining by 9/26 is the last call for receiving a paper directory and entrance into the parking spot raffle.  That flier is also attached to the email I have sent today!

If you have questions or concerns please email me!
