Week Of July 23rd

Welcome Back


The Third Grade Team is excited for the new school year!  We’ll post weekly curriculum here so you can keep up to date with what your child is learning in the classroom.

This week we will be focusing on building and establishing a positive and friendly community in our classrooms, and administering beginning of  year assessments in reading, writing and math.

Upcoming events:

If you are thinking of volunteering on campus, please plan on attending the Volunteer Inservice meeting on August 1st.  The sessions are just 25 minutes long and will begin at 6pm, repeating 4 times so you can make a later session if needed.

We look forward to seeing you all at our curriculum night on August 23.  There will be 3 sessions. You can come to which ever time works for you.  The multiple sessions allow you to visit other classes should you have more than one child attending Wolf Canyon.  More details will be posted soon!
