Ms. Amy's Room 105
Hello Parents and Students,
It is hard to believe that we are already in April and in the 4th quarter of the school year! Your children came back from Spring Break ready to learn!! There are many things going on at school in the month of April. Please be sure to look below at the special dates.
3rd Grade: Over the past few weeks the third graders have been reviewing the testing process for the AZ Merit. We have also been reviewing key concepts. They are becoming more and more confident with the process each day. The days that 3rd grade will be testing are listed below. This year everyone will be testing using the computers. Please make sure your children get a good night’s sleep and eat a healthy breakfast in the morning on testing days.
Language Arts: We will continue with reading, writing, and completing grammar. In reading, students are continuing to focus on new vocabulary, comprehension, spelling, and dictionary work in short stories. In addition, we are continuing to work on the purpose of writing, proper form and penmanship, and neatness. We are currently working on opinion writing and format using planning, rough drafts, editing, and final copies.
Math: Over the next few weeks both 2nd and 3rd grade will continue focusing measurement and data and geometric shapes. We will also continue a spiraling review of multiplication, division, fractions, and addition and subtraction concepts.

It is that time of year again!! Field Day will be on April 21th. The students LOVE field day. It is a great day filled with fun and teamwork!! Please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to help out, so I can pass your information on to Coach Chad. Let’s make this Field Day a fantastic day for our AMAZING students!
Silent Auction/Art Show/Basket Raffle: Our class would like to put together a “Family Fun Basket” for the silent auction. We will be taking donations of items to put in the basket or a monetary donation of $10.00 (which then will be used to purchase items). Please send in any donations by April 12th.
