Dear C-3 families,

I hope this email finds you well.  I wanted to send a few reminders of upcoming happenings.
This Friday is a NO SCHOOL day.  Please enjoy the long weekend. :)
Next Friday, is our big Math-a-thon event!  I am leaving your child's math practice packet in his/her folder so they can use this to study.  We are also practicing and preparing in class.  Please send in the math-a-thon sponsor sheet as soon as it is completed.  Thank you for your support.  As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
Students brought home the directions for their Pioneer Project earlier this week.  It is due on April 12th.  I hope your child enjoys this fun and enriching project.
Permission Slips: Please turn in your permission slips for the Alviso Adobe and Color Me Mine field trips ASAP.  Thank you!
Just a reminder: I will be out of town until Tuesday.  Mrs. Kujacich will be with the class while I am gone.  She is a lovely and very experienced substitute, so I know the class is in good hands.  I will be checking my email regularly so please message me with any questions/comments and I will get right back to you.
The CAASPP testing is coming up in May.  These tests are quite challenging (especially for third graders since it is their first time taking them). You can help your child prepare by working with them through "The Practice and Training Tests" at the CAASPP website.  CAASPP Practice Test
Our Wilbur paper-mache projects are coming up the week of March 25th.  We need to get our little pigs prepped for the paper-mache portion of our activity.  Please send in the paper bagged filled with shredded paper as soon as you can.  Thank you!
I think that is it for now.  Have a wonderful rest of your week! :)
