Welcome back 3rd Grade Families!

I hope you all had a blessed Easter Break! I’m so excited to have the third graders all together again, and I look forward to all the great learning that is coming up this week:

IMPORTANT REMINDER: The Pike Place Market Field Trip is coming up very soon on Friday, 5/17! The main tour will be from 10:00-12:15, and then we will have lunch at Pike Place before returning to school (home lunch only). We would greatly appreciate 4-5 chaperones/drivers for the field trip, so please let me know if you’re available to help out! 🙂


  • Religion: We are now working on our final prayer for the school year, The Apostle’s Creed! We will be dedicating class time each day to practice this prayer together as a class. However, any extra practice you can incorporate at home is always appreciated! A hard copy of The Apostle’s Creed prayer will be in the homework packets this week!
  • Science: We are continuing with our water unit! This week we are exploring the concept of surface tension, and are conducting an experiment to test how many drops of water can be placed on a penny!
  • Social Studies: Students wrapping up their State Research Projects this week, they should be so proud of all their hard work! Flat Stanley’s are continuing to pop in so students will be able to present as soon as it arrives!
  • Writing: We will begin our Poetry unit this week!

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you!
