Hello 3rd Grade Parents, 

We had a great time this morning celebrating Fathers’ Day early with all of our dads, and some grandfathers! Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy day to celebrate you. We also appreciate your flexibility in moving the event inside though it didn’t end up raining. We had fun anyway!

With the last week of school upon us, please check Campus Updates for important information regarding next week’s events. Some are also listed in the schedule below.

Hello 3rd Grade Parents, 

We would just like to thank all of you who either volunteered or contributed in some way shape or form towards Staff Appreciation Week. Though we teach because we love it, the little extra love and attention this week makes it even more worth it. Between the food, flowers, massages, and coffee we were truly spoiled. We are grateful to be teaching at CHA and working with wonderful families such as yourselves. Thank you again!

Hello 3rd Grade Parents, 

We are so proud of our 3rd graders for their work on musicals this week. We got many compliments regarding how polished they were. Their ability to be flexible and adjust in light of so many students being absent really impressed us. We will host our cast party for them next Friday afternoon to celebrate their achievement. We will provide popcorn for them while they view the video of their performance.

Musical lunch schedule

Students do not need to bring a sack lunch Wednesday, March 27th. They only need a sack lunch Tuesday and Thursday. We apologize for any confusion.

Spelling Test Postponed

Hello Parents, 

The spelling test that was originally scheduled for tomorrow has been postponed until Wednesday. The students will be tested on all long vowel patterns covered in the vowel key. Tonight’s homework assignment gives examples of each of these. They were asked to work on it for 20 minutes and aim to get 5 examples of each rule for each vowel. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. 

 

Thanks & Regards,

Jeena Shamsen

Science Test

Students will take a Science test this Thursday, February 28th. This test will cover our unit on interdependent relationships in ecosystems, life cycles, and traits through the lens Springer the Orca. We will spend the rest of the week reviewing the unit and preparing for the test in class.

Hello 3rd Grade Parents, 

 

We had a great first day of skiing on Wednesday! Thank you to the parent volunteers who help to make this an enjoyable experience for students.

 

Third grade will be leading the Martin Luther King, Jr. assembly on Friday, January 18th from 9-10am. All parents, friends, and family are welcome to join and watch us lead the assembly.

 

Auction and Grade Level Baskets

Social Studies homework

Today students completed a planning sheet detailing an item from their culture or a culture in our community, the culture the item represents, and how that item is used. On Thursday, students will turn in their completed planning sheet and give a short presentation about the cultural item they have chosen. They may choose to bring the item to school with them on Thursday, but it is not required for their presentation. 

Regular Uniform Tomorrow

Good afternoon parents, 

We know there has been some confusion on tomorrow’s uniform and we just wanted to clarify. Originally this was going to be a Dress Uniform day, but after some considerations the school has decided to make it regular uniforms for all students. If they would still like to wear dress uniform they are welcome to do so. We look forward to having you all come see our students present their Multicultural Fair boards in their homeroom classes 2:15 - 3:15. Thank you and have a good evening. 

 

Regards,

Hello 3rd Grade Parents, 

 

This week we were able to talk about and recognize veterans not only here in the U.S., but around the world. Our assembly on Monday help us remember the important service these veterans provided to their countries.

During that assembly we were also able to recognize Allyson Zhao as our student leader of the trimester. Ally was voted by her peers based on leadership traits that we all agreed upon a few weeks ago.
