I hope you had a wonderful Spring Recess with your child. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone back at school tomorrow!
Just Say No Program
Over the next several weeks third graders will learn about the dangers of alcohol and drug use. Members of the Liverpool Elks have been sponsoring the program for many years. Our first visit will be this Wednesday, April 26th. On this day, students will receive a t-shirt and a brief introduction to the program. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
NYS ELA Testing
We are so proud of the perseverance that our boys and girls showed with testing! Looking ahead...the NYS Math test will take place on May 2nd through the 4th.
Second trimester report cards (paper copies) were sent home last Friday, March 10th. If you haven't already, please return your child's signed envelope on Monday. Report cards are also available on-line. They can be assessed from the School Tool Parent Portal. Click here for the link.
Trimester 3 Special Area Schedule
Our new schedule begins on Monday, March 13th. A copy of the schedule was sent home today. Click here if you need another copy.
Recently, there's been an increase in the number of students who have been absent or late to school. Missed days add up. Please try your best to ensure that your child comes to school every day unless they are too sick to come. If your child is unable to come for more than 2 days due to illness, I would be happy to send home missed work, upon request. Thanks for your support!
My Math Student Center
Last week, boys and girls were shown how to access the My Math Student Center. In short, students can print homework if they forget to bring it home, watch tutorial videos for help with homework, and play on-line math games. Information was sent home in your child's take-home folder. Students' log-in information can also be found on the inside cover of planners. After your child links to the site they should click on the class that looks like the image below.

It is essential that your child practice their multiplication facts nightly. Thus far, we have been learning 0s, 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, and 10s. Please ensure that your child is spending at least 5 to 10 minutes practicing their facts. Ways to practice include flashcards, IXL, writing their facts, multiplication songs, etc. Each week, your child will take a weekly timed, individualized goal fact quiz.
Just a reminder that your child has access to Raz-Kids and it can be utilized at home. Log in information is in their planner near the front cover. All students have books that they can read in Raz-Kids that are at their level. Raz-Kids reading can be used for students' nightly 20 minutes of reading homework.

Take Home Folders
Please help your child to empty their take home folder each day. Not only does it help them to be better organized, it also gives them an opportunity to share their accomplishments in school. Planners should also be signed each day.
If you haven't had a chance to sign up for Remind here is the link. I use this to for reminders for school events, 1/2 days, etc.
Another slight change...we moved our afternoon routine (pack-up) to before recess. To view our new schedule, click here.
Wondering what's for lunch this month...click here for the link to our district's menus. (Once you link, you will need to scroll down a bit to print the current month).
Pizza Hut Book It Reading Program
Students were thrilled to learn that they have the opportunity to earn a free pan pizza from Pizza Hut each month during the months of October through March. In order to receive a coupon for a free pizza, students are required to complete their reading homework (read at least 20 minutes daily at home), and an adult at home needs to sign their planner each day. Please help your child to accomplish this goal.
