Sept. 14 – Sept. 18

We have a big week in 3rd Grade!

This week…

  • Chromebooks! We have a class set that we will be able to use throughout the day. Each student will be assigned a Chromebook that they will use whenever we take them out.
  • Scantron testing! A benchmark test that is done 3 times a year – in Reading, Language Arts, and Math. It is used purely for me to see what areas I need to focus on more than others.
  • Back to School Night (virtually)! Thursday, September 17 is our virtual Back to School Night! I look forward to “seeing” everyone. More information will be coming this week.
  • Friday, September 18, is a half day. Dismissal is at 12:00pm.

Please don’t hesitate to email me (colleen.booth@stmikes22003.org) if you have any questions.
