**Tuesday is Library, so the students need to bring their books back on that day.**

Homework:

 Math:  Each student will need to get onto www.reflexmath.com and complete their “green light” Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (4 sessions).  I will teach the students how to login to the app/website.  Just in case they don’t remember, the class username is “waddell3″ and all passwords are “rams”.

Reading:  Each student needs to read at least 20 minutes (Monday-Thursday).  Please print off the Reading Log, fill out the form and return on Friday.  The Reading Log can be cut into fourths and used over the next four weeks.  If for some reason, you can’t print it off, please write it on paper instead. :)

***CHANGE to Spring Parent Teacher Conference***

I am SO sorry to do this to all of y’all, but Quest decided to change the dates of Spring Parent Teacher conferences today…so, I need to delete the sign-ups on BLOOMZ and put another one up.  Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks in advance for your flexibility.  The new dates are Tuesday, January 29th and Thursday, January 31st from 3:30-7:45.

Spring Parent/Teacher Conferences Sign-Up

The Spring PTC dates are Tuesday, February 19th from 3:00-7:45 pm and Wednesday, February 20th from 3:00-7:45.  Please sign-up on the BLOOMZ app for the time that best fits the schedule for your family.  
My classroom PTC schedule is different than the Quest PTC schedule, due to the fact that I will be in Salt Lake City for a training on Thursday (2/21) of that week.  Please make note of the difference.  Thanks for being flexible with my schedule.

Week of January 7th-11th

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and caught up on some sleep.  It was hard for me to get back into the swing of things last week.  We will be updating all of our DIBELS mid-year data this week.  Please make sure students are here at school so everyone gets their testing completed.  Also, I will be doing math tutoring after school on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday with the students not at mastery on addition and subtraction.  I will reach out to you if your child needs to stay with me on those days.

Week of January 2nd-5th

Happy New Year to y’all!!  I can’t believe it is already 2019.  These next 5 months will be super busy and intense, so hold on tight!!  We will be doing all of our Winter DIBELS testing in the next few weeks for mid-year data.  Also, we will be reteaching skills in tutoring next week that have not yet been mastered.  I will be emailing parents to have students stay after school for extra help in math standards.  Please be checking your emails for that information.

**Even though it is a short week, please complete math homework (Reflex) and reading minutes for Wednesday and Thursday night.**

Grinch Party help:  We will not need help on the day of the party, but it would be greatly appreciated if any parents are willing to make green sugar popcorn for the party.  Let us know if you can help us with that.

**White Elephant Gifts:  Please do not spend a lot of money on your gift!  Be creative!  Use something around your house, a toy you don’t play with anymore, a Dollar Store gift, etc.  Please bring a gift that the other third grade students would want to steal from the other students.  Let me know if you need me to provide a gift for your child.
