• YMCA Swim Reminder

    Posted by Douglas Gillespie on 2/4/2020 4:20:00 PM

    Dear Parents or Guardians,

    Starting this Friday, the Russell 3rd graders will be participating in the YMCA SPLASH swimming lessons.  The program consists of four 30 minute lessons that will introduce your child to aquatic safety. Each student will need their swimwear and towels the day of their lesson. Lessons begin on February 7th and continue on the 14th, 21st, and 28th. Our class will be divided into two groups, with the first group starting at 1:30 pm and the second group at 2:00 pm. Please send a plastic bag to put their wet swimwear in. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. 

    Thanks for your support,

    Mr. Gillespie

  • Valentine's Day

    3rd grade Valentine’s Day Party

     

    It’s time to start planning our 3rd grade Valentine’s Day Party.  We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day on Thursday and Friday, February 13th and 14th.  To celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, we have a SPARK artist coming February 13th to lead us in a Valentine’s reader theatre.  On Valentine’s Day, we will be playing games and swimming!  We will also be exchanging Valentine’s cards.  These do not need to be store bought.  Homemade valentines are the best!  If you need some construction paper for your 3rd grader to create their own, just email me, and I will send some home.  Below is a list of students in our classroom.  We will be making holders for our Valentine’s cards in class.

  • Math Practice

    Please practice multiplication and division facts through 10. It is very important that your child knows these facts by the end of 3rd grade. If you need additional flashcards, please let me know and I will send them home with your child.

  • Happy New Year

    Posted by Douglas Gillespie on 1/6/2020

    Welcome back and happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful break. We are getting ready to start the middle of the year Star reading and math assessments. Please help your child get back into the swing of things. Practice your multiplication and division facts, reading, and getting to bed at a decent hour.
