Important Notes and Reminders
Summer School: Just a reminder, next Wednesday, April 5th is the deadline to sign up for bus transportation. To register, click here: http://www.liberty.k12.mo.us/summerschool
Survey: Kellybrook Families, Now that the our 1st Open House: Leader Showcase 2017 has concluded, we would appreciate your feedback. Please take a brief moment to complete this brief survey here. Thank you!
Wax Museum: The much anticipated 3rd grade Wax Museum will be happening soon! Students will need to decide on an "influential person" that they would like to research, write a report on, and dress up as. Please help your child decide on a person who has made an impact in our world, and is/was a leader in some way. They need to have their chosen person (and maybe a few backups in case someone else choses their person) decided by next Monday, April 3rd. The date for our class Wax Museum is TBD at this time, but will be in early May!
MAP Testing: 3rd Grade will be taking the MAP Test the week of April 24th-28th. If you know in advance that your child will be absent any of those days, could you please email me? Also, please avoid scheduling doctor/dentist appointments for your child this week if at all possible. Thanks!
40 Book Challenge: We are up to three students who've reached 40 books! I would really like to see more kids participating in this. We will be having a pizza party in May for students who reach the goal. I recommend 3rd graders read at least 20 minutes outside of school per day. Thanks for your support at home.
Take a Peek at Next Week
Kauffman Center Field Trip: This is next Tuesday, April 4th! We will be leaving KB at 9:15. Please make sure your child arrives to school on time! If students signed up to bring a sack lunch from home, please write their name on it. If your child is signed up to receive a lunch from the cafeteria, they will be ready for them that morning. Email me if you don't remember what you signed up for =) All students need to wear light blue class shirts and tennis shoes. We will eat lunch at Loose Park and give kids some free time to play after the show. We will be returning to school around 1:00.
Talent Show Tryouts: These will be next Friday, April 7th during 3rd grade specials. See the handout in Peach Jar for more information. All questions regarding the talent show can be directed to Jill Davies, our music teacher: firstname.lastname@example.org
Time: We will be taking a short quiz over time on Tuesday, April 4th. Students need to know how to tell time to the nearest minute, find how much time has passed given a start and end time, and elapsed time. Please make sure you are reviewing your child's homework each night!
Multiplication/Division Facts: Please make sure your child is continuing to review flashcards and/or Reflex math at home if they have not mastered their facts. Our multiplication ice cream party is coming up in about a month!
