Students worked hard this week taking the STAR Reading and Math Tests. These tests will show if our students are improving and showing growth in reading and math. We look forward to sharing these results with you at conferences.

Welcome Back

Welcome to Third Grade! We are so excited for the start of a new year! It was so nice to meet most of you on Back to School Night. School starts Tuesday, August 6th. We can't wait to see you!

Friday, May 10, 2013

THEY DID IT! Our third grade students took their first ever KPREP Assessment. We are so proud of all their hard work this week. Thanks for all of your encouragement and to everyone who sent snacks. Your kindness is appreciated!

A special thanks for the Teacher Appreciation dessert treats and individual teacher gifts.  It has been our pleasure teaching your children and getting to know you this year. We will definately miss all of you!

We look forward to honoring all of our student's achievements with some fun activities and field trips next week.

The time is finally here! It is time for our 3rd Grade Wildcats to SHINE!!!  We are so excited and ready to show off all of the skills we know.  This is a very important time for your child. PLEASE encourage him/her to do his/her BEST each day.  Give extra hugs and smiles.  These students have worked so hard this year and are going to do GREAT on the test!
Your child will not have any homework during the week of testing!  The only assignments we want to give them are to have fun playing when they get home each day, get a good night's sleep (do not go to bed late), and wake up ready to work hard for the next day.  If you eat at home, please have your child eat a healthy breakfast.  Our lunch ladies will be preparing great breakfasts at school, too.

Next week is the last week for tutoring.  Thursday, April 25 is the LAST day for tutoring this year.

We are getting back into the swing of things after Spring Break. The students have worked hard this week!
Farmington Elementary has a new website. You can access it by going to the Graves County Schools homepage and clicking on the Farmington Elementary link.
Next week is spring pictures. Students may take pictures alone, with friends, or with siblings. Please fill-out the form in the Friday Folder and return it by Thursday.
Also, the sales items will be in on Thursday. If your child sold items, someone needs to be in the gym after school to help bring the items home.
It's hard to believe we are nearing the end of the year. There are three instructional weeks left until our students take the end of the year state test (KPREP). We are working hard to prepare students so they can work hard and show how smart they are. Thanks for all your help encouraging your child to do his/her best.
 Have a great weekend! It looks like the weather will be nice!

What an exciting week here in Third Grade! We learned about bike safety and will use that information to write an article next week.

Students helped a needy family through Heifer International by purchasing a flock of chicks. I am so proud of our students.

We will have an Easter Party next Friday the 29th. Students voted to have an extra recess instead of an egg hunt.

One more week until Spring Break!

What a GREAT week we had in Third Grade! Students attended a dental program and learned ways to keep their teeth healthy. They did a great job of listening and asking questions.

The field trip was a success! The Charlotte's Web performance was funny, sweet, and entertaining. Of course, the pizza at Pizza Inn was delicious, and we were proud of our student's behavior.

The Valentine party was fun, and students were very excited to pass out their Valentines.

We are looking forward to a great week of learning next week!
