Start of a New Year

Welcome parents.  I will be using this blog to post information, pictures, forms, and newsletters throughout the year.  I've posted the new volunteer form, info on students' brains, the first newsletter, and an informational packet that answers the most commonly asked questions.  Instead of a parent meeting, we are creating a series of short videos that explain third grade procedures and expectations.  Our hope is to have those ready soon.

Thanks for checking in,

Animal pictures and year end survey

I've posted a few pictures of a presentation on MI animals, our zoo trip, and the directions for our adapations project in case you end up working on it at home.  If you haven't taken the third grade survey yet, you can do so by clicking the link:

We appreciate your input as we continue to improve the third grade experience for students and parents.

Thanks for checking in!


Grandparents Day

We enjoyed hosting grandparents and special guests this afternoon.  Here are a few pictures of the fun.

Special thanks to several moms from our class that worked very hard to make it happen.  It wouldn't have come together without you!


MI Museum

Thanks for all of your hard work and support on this project.  The kids did a fine job, and really had a good time today. 

Here's at least one picture of each presenter today in no particular order.


MI Museum details

I've attached the information that was sent home with kids today, as well as a few example scripts.  The kids are also bringing home some pictures of past projects so you can visualize what we're looking for.

Only use the sheets if you find them helpful, and let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for checking in,

Valentines Day Fun

Here are a few pictures of today's fun.  I failed to get a picture of the ice cream bar at the end - it was something.

Thanks again to all the parents who were able to help out.

Christmas party 2011

Attached are pictures of this year's party and the lyrics (and tunes) to the multiplication songs we'll be using.  We'll start with the 5s when we return from break.

Thanks for all you do,

Pete Goers

Halloween Fun

I've attached today's newsletter, the conference reflection form and some pictures of our party and costume parade on Monday.  Hard copies of the conference form will come home next week, but you may email questions/concerns any time.

Thanks for checking in,

First week

Thanks for checking in.  Check out the pictures of some of the team-building activities we did this week below.  You'll also find today's newsletter, our class consttitution, the new blue slips, and the consequences we agreed upon.

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

August 2011 - The start of a new school year!

Thanks for checking in.  I've attached a few items below, including information on the brain and learning, and the parent packet I passed out at back to school night.  I'll post newsletters and pictures here, so feel free to check back whenever you need to.  I usually send a reminder email when updates are made.  Questions you have can be answered at our third grade parent night on Thursday, Sept. 22, at 6:30, but you don't need to wait until then.  Feel free to call or email with any questions any time -  748-4700 ext. 5727
