B-6 Parents and Students:
This week be sure to look through your student’s white envelope, as there are several flyers and student work samples.
This week we enjoyed a terrific field trip to the Intel museum, where the students got a brief exposure to the compuer industry, and built electric circuits in the lab. We did not get much free time in the museum, as we had to get back to school, BUT .... good news! The Intel Museum is open to the publick Monday through Saturday! This is a terrific, relatively small museum with lots of interactive displays, and is free to the public. For details, go to http://www.intel.com/museum.
Home and School Club .... our class has a special-extension, and our membership drive will now last until MONDAY, October 5!! Please consider joining HSC ... this organization is an essential element of our school, both organizing community building activities and acting as a fundraising arm to help pay for various academic extras. Any amount is welcome! For more information on how to join go to graystonehsc.org

Our goal is for every fourth-grade student to complete Lexia Level 16 before the end of the school year. B-5 works toward this goal during computer lab, but these students went an extra mile. We are proud of the following student-scholars who worked hard, not only in class, but also at home on their own time to complete this goal. We are grateful for their effort and acknowledge their accomplishment with pride.
Congratulations to the following B-5 Scholars, members of the Zero Club!

Put 4th grade homework here
August 14, 2013
Welcome to third grade in B-8! It is exciting to see new faces after a relaxing summer vacation. This is my second year teaching third grade, and I am so excited that I will be working with your child to ensure a fun and successful third grade learning experience.
This week, students and I will be getting to know each other and establish some classroom rules and routines. Don’t be surprised to see how much learning your child is required to do this year! As the third grade curriculum is filled with so many new concepts to learn, we will jump into studying the units in math and language arts this week. The official spelling test will begin next week.
Homework will be sent home with your child this week to help your child quickly adjust to the new school year. Successfully completing neat and organized homework on time is expected in third grade, and your child may need additional support and help from you. Homework is due the next day, and students are required to bring in their homework planner each day. Please review your child’s daily homework written on the homework planner and make sure that you sign the portion that describes about the homework from the planner each day. You may also write comments in the homework planner.
Back to School Night is on Tuesday, August 31st. Please mark your calendar for this important event. More information about Back To School Night will be sent home to you next week.
I believe the importance of teacher and parent communication. Please fill in and return the Parent Contact form to school by the end of this week. I will be e-mailing the monthly newsletter to let you know about current activities, units of study, and other important information that is occurring in class at the beginning of the month. Please let me know if you prefer to receive a hard copy of the class newsletter each month.
The 3rd grade school supplies that you ordered in advance through Graystone has been delivered to class. The class needs hand sanitizers, disinfecting wipes, red pens, and post-its (3”x3”). These items were not listed in the school supply list and will be used in class through out the year. If you wish to donate any of these items, you may bring it to school. Any donation is greatly appreciated.
I am looking forward to meeting you and getting to know your child. There will be tremendous learning happening in class, and I believe it will be a rewarding year for all of us.
