Dear 3rd Grade Parents, 

We hope you all enjoyed the 3-day weekend and were able to find a way to remember/honor Dr. Martin Luther King. We have been doing different activities in class in order to do the same. This week we also had the opportunity to watch The Granny Awards, our spring musical. We reviewed the audition forms with them which should be returned by next Friday.


Dear 3rd Grade Parents,  

Happy New Year! It was wonderful to hear all about the travels and experiences the students enjoyed during break.
