Welcome!

There are several changes happening in the school district. Please stay aware of the construction areas, pick up and drop off areas for students.

 

Please be sure to scroll all the way down to check out the schedule. Remember it may change at any time due to unforeseen circumstances.  

 

I hope you are enjoying summer break. I have been attending professional development, and working around the farm. 

There are a few things I want to suggest to help prevent summer learning loss, and to prepare for fourth grade. I hope you will encourage your child to read daily to build their vocabulary knoowledge. The more words your child knows and understands, the better they will do with comprehension. There are plenty of books and safe websites your child may read to gain word knowledge. Another is practice the PASS Set Vocabulary. These are Oklahoma Academic Vocabulary terms that we use daily in the classroom. Students will need to know the vocabulary word, the definition, and examples to identify and create on their own. Something that is often left out over summer is writing. Please have your child practice writing. Have them write the grocery shopping list, a to do list for around the house, or even create their own stories. If you need more ideas, feel free to email me. I will get back with you as soon as I am able.

Oh! I don’t want to forget about math. Your child should already know multiplication facts, but if they don’t know them by heart, please have them practice these daily until they are able to tell you the answer without any hesitation. Multiplication is the foundation for most of the math that will be taught in 4th grade. 

 

Quick Info:

Please make sure your student is dressing appropriately for the weather. We will be outside on most days, weather permitting. Having your child dress in layers is recommended.

 

Have a Safe and Happy Summer!

See you in August!

 

Remember, First Bell Rings at 8:20 am

(It is very important that your child is at school by the first bell.)
