MAP TESTING IS 5/14 (reading) and 5/16 (math)!!!!!!
Happy Spring! Updates and Reminders : Thank you all for the good luck wishes and support while I was gone! I feel so thankful to be a part of such a supportive community! It was most certainly a dream come true, but I am happy to be home :)
With NWEA MAP testing quickly approaching (week of May 13th), we will be busy both in finishing up our math unit on measurement, as well as continuing to learn about Figurative Language.
Students will be given their science fair project packet to share with their parents and begin to think of their project ideas. The science fair is a big part of their 4th quarter grade, and students will need to keep up with the due dates so they don't fall behind. This is meant to get them excited about conducting experiments. I understand there is a quick turnaround for some of the dates, so if you have any conflicts, let me know! The Jr. Science Fair is scheduled for Thursday, June 6th.
Monday- Spanish Tuesday- Art and P.E Wednesday- Spanish and Library/Dance Thursday- Drama Friday- Drama and Library/Dance
Drop Off and Pick Up
As a reminder, third grade lines up on the blacktop next to the playground and we dismiss through the side doors on Belle Plaine. I ask that students do not leave until I have seen the person they will be going home with. Please be patient as it takes me a couple of weeks to learn all of the new faces!
Please note that last year CPS revised the procedures for volunteers and now requires ALL volunteers to complete an application. To maintain in compliance with CPS, Coonley will require that all volunteers (classroom, field trip, celebration, etc.) have completed an application and are approved by CPS. Please follow the link below to complete your application. You will need to complete an application as a 'Parent/Guardian Volunteer'. https://cpsparentu.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=319488&type=d
Once again, black folders will be coming home every other Wednesday. Please keep an eye out for your child's folder, remove all information distributed, and return them as soon as possible.
There is Parent Open House on Thursday, September 20th from 6:00-7:00 pm. I look forward to seeing you there and answering any questions you may have.
