Parent / Teacher conferences start this week. Starting this Thursday we will be on minimum day schedule through the end of the quarter on 9/17. Students are dismissed at 1:45pm.
Thank you for all of your support with this year’s APEX fun run. We will be running this Thursday, so please make sure the students are dressed properly for running. This will be our PE for the day. All students will be receiving an official Apex fun run t-shirt to wear during the race the morning of the event.
Keep an eye on the school’s blog for updated information on our run time and parent volunteer opportunities to help count student laps.
Our Fall Parent/ Teacher conferences start September 9th. Please be on the look out for how to sign-up, if you haven’t already, from your child’s teacher. Starting Thursday, 9/9/21 we will be on minimum day schedules through the end of the quarter on 9/17. Students will be dismissed at 1:45pm.
We look forward to meeting with you to discuss your child’s progress and our plan for the rest of the school year to help your child reach their academic goals.
Below, please find a copy of what we are working on this week.
New homework packets go out on Mondays. The previous weeks work is due tomorrow, August 16th. Please review the homework packet with you child and help them to develop a daily routine. We will continue to add and update the weekly packet as we cover our expectations with the students first in the classroom.
3rd Grade Teachers will be sending out a link this week to parents with our curriculum slide show video. It’s filled with information to help parents know what to expect this year for your student. Please reach out to your classroom teacher if you have any questions after viewing it. Thank you. Have a great week!
It looks like we forgot to hit submit last week so our update didn’t go out. Oops! Here is this weeks student focus for 3rd grade. Please be sure and check for homework packets in your child’s backpacks on Monday. We are adding new activities after we introduce them to the students in class first. We want to make sure students are aware of expectations and know how to access the apps online. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions.
This week we will continue to introduce classroom procedures and start our beginning of the year assessments for reading and math. Please find below our 3rd grade week at a glance to become familiar with what your child will be working on in class.
We will be starting with some math homework this week and adding additional homework in the coming weeks after we have had time to go over the material and expectations in the classroom.
We hope your children’s day went well for their first day of school. We appreciate your patience as we all work through returning to in person learning. The school is over capacity and our administration is doing their best to accommodate the number of students and work through the current protocols due to Covid.
Each week we will update this blog with our lesson plans and pass on any grade level news so you know what to expect. This week we are focusing on establishing a classroom community and creating routines to help ease the students back into the classroom filled with students. We are also doing informal assessments for math, writing and listening to the students speak. Next week we should be ready to assign more formal reading assessments utilizing our classroom laptops and one on one interviews.
Please be on the look out for paperwork or folders coming from your child’s teacher this week. Each classroom will create a contact list to communicate more personably with their parents utilizing email and various apps. We will start some homework next week and build on it as our quarter progresses. Normally, we like to send home a homework packet on Monday to be completed during the week and returned on the following Monday. We realize there are after school activities that your child may be participating in so we try to plan ahead to allow your child flexibility on when they complete their homework during the week.
We are looking forward to getting back to a normal routine and helping your children grow academically and socially this school year.
The students will have 2 more school days with Tuesday, June 15th being our last day. It will be a Distance Learning schedule day for all students, matching our Friday schedule. Monday the 14th will be the last in-person day for our Hybrid students.
Love, Mr. Nixon, Mr. Marcus, Ms. Madison, Mrs. Felix and Mrs. Lee
