Remember, this week is conference week! Dismissal will begin at 12:20 all week. If you need a reminder of your conference time, please let me know. Don't forget, your child should come with you to the conference. Your child will be sharing some of his or her work and we will also make some goals together at the beginning of the conference. We will also have a chance to chat without your child if you have specific things to discuss without him or her in the room.
A field trip permission form & money envelope went home last Thursday for our 2 upcoming in-house field trips. Please be sure to return the signed permission slip, the signed Diamond/Gem mining brochure, and the payment envelope. Thank you to those who have already returned these! (We have some off-campus field trips planned for later in the year too.)
This week is RED RIBBON WEEK.
Red Ribbon Week Theme: Leaders are Drug Free!

Red Ribbon Week is a national event that promotes drug awareness and prevention each year. At Addison, we use this week to encourage our students to make good choices. We hope you will support us in celebrating happy, healthy choices at home! J
Monday – “Make a pledge Monday!” to live a healthy life – At the start of this nationally recognized Red Ribbon Week – Students will receive Red Ribbon Week ribbons and sign class pledge to show that they pledge to live a healthy life!
Tuesday – “Hats off to being drug free!”- Students will wear their favorite hat.
Wednesday – “Wear Red Wednesday!” Wear red to support a healthy life!
Thursday – “Shade out drugs!” – Wear your favorite sunglasses.
Friday – “Team up against drugs!”- Wear your favorite team gear or Addison spiritwear.
Here's a look at our learning this week:
In health, we will be reading about ways to say no to drugs, alcohol, & tobacco as part of our 3rd grade health standards. We will use our new reading strategy SLAMS this week as we answer questions about the harmful effects of drugs, alcohol, & tobacco.
In math, we will continue working on multiplying and dividing by 2s, 5s, and 10s. We are working on memorizing these facts. Please check out the games & quizzes on our blog for some fun practice. Fact Practice
Last week in writing, we all pretended to be worms and wrote about the different types of soil we encounter. This week, we will publish those stories as e-books on the computer! I'll be sure to share these with you when they're completed this week.
As always, please let me or Mrs. Keith know if you have any questions or concerns!
We're looking forward to seeing you at your conference time this week!
