    Just a reminder that conferences in third grade are held together with all three teachers beacuse your child has all three of us for various subjects. 

    To sign up for conferences you will not be given a specific time, but rather you will choose what day works best for you, and then show up during our avaliable times.

    This year Russell is using and online platform to sign up for conferences called Sign Up Genius.  Please follow this link  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040D4CAAAF2AA4FE3-mrs to sign up for your desired conference day. 

    Conferences will be held March 10, 11, & 12.  Thank you for signing up as soon as possible!

  • Parent Teacher Conferences

    Posted by Tessa Masters on 2/18/2020

    Dear Parents,


    Parent Teacher Conferences are coming up very quickly.  Conferences will be held the week of March 9.  Specifically conferences will take place on Tue 3/10, Wed 3/11, & Thur 3/12.  Students will have a half day of school on Thursday the 12th, being released at 11, and there will be NO school on Friday March 13th.  This will lead us right into Spring Break which is the following week.

    Here are a few reminders about conferences:

    • 3rd grade conferences are held together with all three teachers
    • You will not be given a specific time for your conference, it is an open forum.  You may come at any time that works for you in our avaliable time slots.
    • You will need to sign up online for the day you wish to come (you will be given the link for sign up genius)
    • If you see it necessary to have a private, individual conference please reach out to me ASAP and I will gladly set up a time


    Thanks for all you do and your support.  I look forward to meeting with you again!

    Dear Parents,


    Third Graders will be participating in swimming lessons at the YMCA during the month of February.  All third grade students will be split into two groups swimming from 1:30-2 & 2-2:30 on each Friday of the month.  Students will be swimming on Feb. 7th, Feb. 14th, Feb, 21st, and Feb 28th. It is important that your child try to be here all of those days! Please make sure your child comes with their swimming suit and a towel in a seperate bag, as they will be wet.  Thanks for your support and we are excited to become even better swimmers!

    -Mrs. Masters

    Please be practicing multiplication facts with your child.  It is very important that they know their facts, memorized through 9, by the end of 3rd grade.  If you need flash cards for at home practice please reach out and I will send them home for you!
