Unit 10 Math Marks and Reports

Hi Grade 3 families! As a team of grade 3 teachers we noticed that marks for the unit 10 IPP would be coming to you this Thursday, June 21 and reports will be coming to the following Thursday, June 28th. To work smarter not harder we will be saving these IPP marks for the report cards only. Students will see their final test and review it in class this coming Wednesday, June 27th.

To clarify students will NOT receive an IPP for unit 10, they will review their test in class and marks will be on the report coming next Thursday, June 28th.

Long Weekend


This is just a reminder that tomorrow, Thursday, 14th and Sunday, 17th June there will be no school. However, for the next two Tuesdays, we will not have early dismissal, school will end at 3:10, like a normal school day.


Be aware that for the next two weeks (week of May 20th and May 27th), 3rd graders will be MAP Testing.  Please be sure that your child is well rested, nourished and in school on time.

Also, next week, 3rd grade will begin new units of study, in reading, writing and math. Here is what we’ll be learning.

Spelling Bee Time

This year’s Grade 3-5 Spelling Bee will take place on Thursday 10th, May! Yay!

Please encourage your child to be a risk taker and try out.

Two representatives will be chosen from each class and those two will face off with the representatives from the other class.  Then, two will be chosen to represent 3rd grade in the finals.

The spelling words, vocabulary list and spelling bee rules will be in the 3rd Grade Google Classroom. Please download them and begin to practice with your child.

Have a great spring break!!!!
