Notes from Mrs. Faulkenberry

 

Parents,

Thank you to everyone who has donated to our Camping and Fishing Basket for our GES Auction. This auction raises a lot of money for our school. We still need items to fill our basket with. A few ideas may be items to put in a tackle box, water bottles, hats, sunscreen, bug spray,etc. Any donations are greatly appreciated

 

3rd Grade is super excited to be visiting the Capitol Building in Atlanta on February 16th.If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. I hope many of you can join us on this special trip!

 

Reminder- Please make sure your child is completing their homework nightly. Every night your child should complete the following: Reading Fluency Sheet and Questions, Math Fluency sheet (verbal or written), read for 15-20 minutes for AR, and study spelling list. :-) These nightly assignments really help students be successful on the Milestones test in April! Students should be answering the fluency questions in a complete sentence. The last question needs to be a paragraph (4-5 well written sentences). Thank you for helping your child with these assignments.
