Covid-19 Classroom Update


Good Afternoon,
In the event that school is closed for an extended period of time due to the COVID-19 virus, the 3rd grade team has put together a work packet for students to complete. It is very important for students to work on this packet so that when we return to school, they will be ready to continue with our curriculum and benchmark testing schedules.  We ask that students return this completed packet when we return to school. Please continue to check SPS facebook page and website for updated information. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email your child’s teacher.
