Reading benchmark for third graders is scheduled for January 23 and 24. There are early dismissal days on January 24, 25, 28, and 29.
Please ask your student if they are low on supplies as we are continuously asking for more from me. While I do not mind supplying them I am running low myself. The things we are in most need of are pencils and glue sticks.
Please also continue to fill out the reading log for Homework. Quite a few were missing last week.
Additionally. You may have noticed a decrease in paper assignments being returned for reading and writing subjects. This is because our class has adapted into Google Classroom and the students are working more in this. The assignments take a little longer to grade as I have to access each individual ones as they are turned in. We are going through some growing pains with this as it is all new to the students. Please bear with me on this matter.
Thank you for everything you do.
